Colorado Springs, CO The HillSprings Learning Center, a non-profit school for K-8 smart kids who struggle in school, has moved to a new location. The new facility at 2776 Janitell Road, doubles the previous size of the school. HillSprings provides small group, intensive, research-based instruction in reading, writing and math for a half-day. Students attend their neighborhood school for the remainder of the day to benefit from the larger school environment.
The public is invited to the reopening celebration on Thursday, October 22, from 4 to 6 p.m. The Colorado Springs Chamber of Commerce will hold an official ribbon cutting ceremony at 4:30 and the faculty and board of directors will give tours. Over the past 6 years, HillSprings has been successful in helping many children reach their potential, so their families are expected to join in the festivities.
“This new space will enable us to expand our teacher training efforts,” explained Charlie Tye, HillSprings founder and director. The new location has a multipurpose room which will be used to train area teachers in the unique Hill methodology. “We’ve had teachers from all over the Pikes Peak region including Woodland Park, Canon City, and Monument. After learning our highly effective methodology, they are then able to instruct their most challenging students,” stated Lori McCauley, who has completed a rigorous certification process to become a Hill Center trainer. “Our mission is to empower students with learning differences to become confident, independent learners”.
