dscf0078An educated Chattanooga is a greater Chattanooga. That's why—with support from local, state and national partners—we offer programs that help prepare both children and adults for academic success. Programs like after-school tutoring and book distributions help give students the support they need in the classroom. And our special honors program, the National Achievers Society, rewards the area's most exceptional students. The results?

The Urban League of Greater Chattanooga offers after-school tutoring programs to Hamilton County elementary students at Rivermont, Woodmore and Clifton Hills Elementary Schools. Our after-school program is organized to help students improve their academic skills. The curriculum is chosen based on Tennessee State Common Core Standards. Studies have shown that these programs have a positive effect on the overall development of students.

The majority of students who participate in our after school, summer, spring break and Saturday programs consistently score at proficient or advanced levels in reading and math, have great behavior, and learn early on about the importance of pursuing higher education and skills training. Now those students are the foundation of a greater Chattanooga for us all. Click on the links below to learn more about our core education programs.
