Royal Palm Covenant After-School Tutoring Program opened its doors on February 6, 2012. The program is designed for those who cannot meet the expense of private tutors to help with their children’s education.  This tutoring program is sponsored by Family Central and is a year round after-school and summer program that serves students from Kindergarten to Eighth Grade.  Those who qualify through Family Central will receive assistance with their tuition. There is also a limited scholarship program that will be available based upon financial need and scholarship amounts will be determined by the Executive Director and the Administrative Coordinator.

Royal Palm Covenant After-School Tutoring Program is an extension of ministries of the Royal Palm Covenant Church.  Reverend Michael S.W. Rose, Sr. is the Executive Director of the program and his goal is to achieve a higher graduation rate, increase FCAT scores and improve school ratings for local area schools in Palm Beach County. Royal Palm Covenant Church has been in the area since 1962 and is widely known for its free Food Pantry which feeds over 200 people per week.

Reverend Rose firmly believes that through this program, students, teachers and RPC tutors will work together to develop stronger study habits, note-taking abilities, test preparation and test-taking skills to improve overall performance of each child that is enrolled in the program The program also includes individual assistance in Math, Reading and Writing by accredited tutors while receiving daily homework assistance, studying for exams or helping with a child’s school project.

Royal Palm Covenant After-School Tutoring summer program will begin June 11 and run through August 10.  Students will be able to remediate or accelerate their skills in areas of Math, Reading Comprehension and Writing in an array of fun activities and resources.  There will be several educational field trips and park visits throughout the summer for additional learning. The curriculum is comprised of tutoring and instructional activities related to academic coursework, literacy and computers.  Reverend Rose states that his ultimate goal is to be of assistance to teachers and parents for those students who need additional help with their studies but cannot afford that extra help.
