Dedicated to Learning's goal is to provide students with the competitive edge to be successful in their academic secondary and post-secondary education.

It is a fact that strong student writing leads to academic success. Effective writing skills are essential in every subject.


In response, Dedicated to Learning is offering virtual summer classes that further develop writing skills. Dedicated to Learning also understands that many families may be experiencing financial challenges and cannot afford the costs of private tutoring.

It is for this reason that Dedicated to Learning has partnered with FLEX College Prep, a reputable company with twenty years of proven success, and is offering these classes at a reduced price.


The middle school program will emphasize improving and enhancing the quality of writing using an engaging approach. The high school program will focus on writing skills essential for AP exams, the SAT, and the college application essays.


It is our hope that you will consider these new learning opportunities that will provide advantages for your students in the upcoming school year and beyond.
