Our Mission

EnCompass: Resources for Learning develops and provides innovative educational services to students and to the families, schools, communities, and professionals that support them. These services are matched to each student’s unique learning style in order to prevent academic failure and enhance lifelong learning.

EnCompass reaches 2,400 students in Monroe County with a cradle-to-career pathway of student-centered academic and surround support services. Academic programs we develop and provide are Afterschool, Summer, and Daytime Learning, and College and Career Development.

EnCompass Navigation, our groundbreaking holistic approach, layers supports for young children, families, and college and career-bound teens served in our academic programs. Navigation addresses challenges students face inside and outside the classroom, and expands support from the student to all members of his/her family. This whole-family and whole-child concept tackles barriers children and families face and sets students on paths to academic achievement, graduation, and lifelong success.

Certified educators and professional staff reach each student with individualized, evidence-based services that promote academic achievement and student success. Programming is infused by our values of Whole-Child Development, Professionalism, Student-Centered Learning, Informed Practices, and Commitment to All Learners.
