Partnering Programs with the Department of Education:

Shaw University Academic Enrichment Academy

The Shaw University Academic Enrichment Academy is providing free afternoon school tutorials in reading and mathematics for students in kindergarten through eighth grades (SES program). This is the third year of SES tutorials. The afterschool tutorials are being provided to 11 school systems during the 2010-2011 school year. Students receive 30 hours of tutorials and are served on a 1:5 student teacher ratio.  The curriculum is research-based and includes PSPs for reinforcement of individual learning goals. Pretests and posttests from previous years indicate that the students have grown a minimum of 5% each year. Most students demonstrated 6 – 10% growth as a result of the 30 hour tutorials.

Shaw University Center for Early Childhood Education

The Shaw University Center for Early Childhood Education, Development, and Research is a division of the Department of Education. The Center’s mission is to serve as a teaching and research facility for Shaw students, faculty, and staff, as well as a source of professional development for childcare providers, pre- and in-service teachers, and other professionals who work with young children and their families.
