Welcome!

Welcome to High-Grade Global Learning Center, where we Connect, Collaborate, and Create. 

Our mission is to provide effective means to advance learning that constantly adapts to the most current demands of our global community and provides unique opportunities to assist students in meeting their academic goals.  To this end, we operate after school and summer programs which have four primary objectives:

  1. To provide high-quality tutoring in math, English, science, and social studies (among other K12 subject areas) after school and during the summer to students from low socioeconomic backgrounds, minority and other K12 students in Broward County, FL.
  2. To provide high-quality SAT/ACT and other college prep activities after school and during the summer to students from low socioeconomic backgrounds, minority and other K12 students in Broward County, FL.
  3. To provide a hybrid academic-co and extracurricular summer program for students from low socioeconomic backgrounds, minority and other K12 students who reside in South Florida.
  4. To provide workshops for parents, guardians, and other community stakeholders with children from low socioeconomic backgrounds. These workshops will provide them with knowledge and skills to support their children/students in their quest for success in grade school, college, and beyond.

Our K12 tutoring and test prep sessions are facilitated by highly qualified staff who have been trained in our specialized High-Grade approach to teaching and learning. These approaches center around our target clientele of at-risk, urban minority, (and other) students with large learning gaps and who need strategic academic help. We also provide enrichment and college prep programs for other students who are meeting and/or exceeding state standards and who are seeking to take their academics to a higher level.

Is your child having trouble reading?

The Reading Scholarship, administered by Step Up For Students, was created to help public school students in third through fifth grade who struggle with reading. The program offers parents access to education savings accounts worth $500 each to pay for tuition and fees related to part-time tutoring, summer and after-school literacy programs, instructional materials, and curriculum related to reading or literacy.

Benson

Student

"My daughter told me about High-Grade because her friend went there. I wasn't going to send my daughter because she wasn't struggling in school but when I called and realized how affordable their fees are I decided to go for it and I'm glad I did because they're not just about catching kids up. They do a great job of keeping my daughter ahead of her class."

Dee

parent

"My son was struggling with 5th grade math and I didn't know what to do. I got him a tutor I found on the internet but I wasn't comfortable with the arrangement. Then I saw a flyer for High-Grade and called them up. They were very professional and knowledgeable and I was happy to know that all their teachers were certified with background checks because that was very important to me. Now my son is doing very well in math. As a matter of fact, his teacher told me in a conference that she would love to meet his tutor. That made me feel so good."

Collette

parent

"I wasn't even thinking about college when I came to one of their SAT workshops. I just wanted to get my reading requirement to graduate . But they taught me so much at the workshop and even helped me to get a scholarship to play soccer in college. I am in college now only because of them."

Erode

DB

"I've been taking the ACT and SAT since junior year trying to get my reading requirement for graduation but I just couldn't get the score I needed until I came to High-Grade. Just three sessions with Mr. Pierre and that was it. My ACT score went up by 7 points and I could finally graduate."
