Upgrade Academics Inc
Welcome to Upgrade Academics
The Buffalo City School District has decided that it will no longer offer
supplemental educational services under the No Child Left Behind Act.
As a result of this decision,
Upgrade’s free tutoring program will no longer be available to Buffalo’s students.
We had hoped to continue our after school services and are very disappointed that
the District has chosen to terminate the program.
Last year, at no charge to the students, Upgrade tutored over 2,000 Buffalo students. Many of them were English Language Learners who enrolled in our program for its strong emphasis on ESL instruction. Students in our program improved both their academic and social skills.
Working in small groups, our students received individualized attention, developed close relationships with their tutors and their peers, improved their confidence, and spent two hours after school in a nurturing, enriching environment.
Assisting students in the Buffalo community has been a tremendously rewarding experience.
We will truly miss working with the dedicated administrators, site leaders, and tutors who have helped us build a successful program.
We wish all of Buffalo's students and their families the best this school year.
