Help Transform Students into LEARNING SUPERHEROES

Featured

ACCELERATE NORTHFIELD knows any youngster can be a LEARNING SUPERHERO. That’s because its scores of volunteer tutors have helped students in NORTHFIELD PUBLIC SCHOOLS take flight toward lofty academic goals since 2011.

You, too, can help transform students into LEARNING SUPERHEROES.

Accelerate Northfield is a collaboration among parents, community members and organizations seeking to improve the academic performance of local students. Accelerate’s reading and math tutors work primarily in Northfield’s three elementary schools: BRIDGEWATER, GREENVALE PARK and SIBLEY. Accelerate tutors also have the option to serve at NORTHFIELD MIDDLE SCHOOLand ARCADIA CHARTER SCHOOL.

Doing the heavy lifting in encouraging students to take steps toward superhero status – in other words, making strides in academic performance – has been community volunteers. These tutors, ranging in age from college students to seniors, work with students either on a one-on-one basis or in small groups in reading or math.
