Éxito STEAM Program

Our Éxito (Success) program teaches science, reading and life skills to children in our community from 1st grade through high school. Summer classes meet in two-week sessions Monday-Friday in June, July and August. Our Éxito in the Schools program takes place during the school year and allows us to collaborate with teachers, parents and other professionals to address the needs of at-risk Hispanic youth. 


Here is just some of the feedback we've received from parents of our Éxito students:

"The experience we have had at Éxito has been one of the best experiences we have had as a family. We have been able to see the growth of my son both as a student, a leader and above all as a human being."

"My daughter participated for the first time in this program and her stay and participation was truly a rewarding, joyful and very enriching experience for her."

"Éxito was an amazing experience for both of my boys. The exposure to a variety of meaningful activities and exposure to their community was undoubtedly a life experience exposure and change that has sparked a special interest in both of them. They are already talking about next year."

Our Éxito program includes science, technology, engineering, art, math (STEM/STEAM), English Language and Spanish Language components as well as life-skill enrichment.
