Kingman’s Excellence in Academics Program (KEAP) focuses on reading, arithmetic, and writing.  By providing additional instruction that reinforces the participants’ regular DC Public Schools curricula, the program is designed to improving student’s core skills.  After extensive evaluation, the content of the lessons is adjusted to address the children’s individual strengths and weaknesses, leading to a significant increase in their scholastic performance, and often helping move them beyond grade-level.

Kingman’s Academic Strengthening Program (KASP) KASP ensures success thru strengthening the student’s existing knowledge in various subject areas. Students in this program will have 8 hours of directed homework time and 4 hours of tutoring each week.
