Project C.A.R.E.S. is a community literacy and enrichment tutoring program for K-12 students that is partially funded by the Church Home Foundation of the West Tennessee Episcopal Diocese and the St. Paul – Mason Gailor Community, since 2009. One phase of Project C.A.R.E.S. includes a tutoring program where students learn outside of school and get extra preparation for the ACT, SAT and regular school work in Math and English (i.e. Reading, Grammar, and Writing). Project C.A.R.E.S. motto is “Leadership through Literacy.”
This summer (June/July, 2017), Project C.A.R.E.S. collaborated with The Mason Caregivers Shalom Zone/ Center for Transforming Communities (CTC) to provide a two-week ACT Strategies Prep program for middle and high school students. The instructors, volunteers, and students were awesome! Phase II of the ACT Prep program will continue in the fall. Project C.A.R.E.S. has provided tutoring/enrichment opportunities for K-12th graders for over eight years. This year, they are focusing on ACT/PSAT Prep for middle and high school students.

The project provides grade-level appropriate English, reading, writing, math instruction and tutoring for children in elementary (grades k-5), middle (grades 6-8) and secondary education (grades 9-12). The students also participate in enrichment activities such as chess, reader’s theater, and musical workshops to aid students in improving critical and creative thinking skills associated with math and writing. To access the ACT Prep flyer click the link below:
