Hill Learning Center Overview:
Founded in 1977, Hill Learning Center's mission is to transform students with learning differences into confident, independent learners. We pursue our mission through a range of K-12 student and educator programs and strategic partnerships with schools, districts, and leaders in the field.
Twenty percent of children – or 1 in 5 students – have learning and attention issues, yet only a small subset receive the specialized instruction or accommodations they need. Access to services, like those Hill offers, are too frequently predictable by a family’s income level or racial background. Thus, Hill actively works to reach, engage, and retain students and educators representing all races, ethnicities, sexual orientations, gender identities, and socioeconomic classes to experience and benefit fully from Hill programs and practices.
Our Student Programs include School, Summer, and Tutoring, reaching over 1,000 K-12 students in the Triangle region annually. Students receive differentiated, research-based instruction in reading, writing, math, and executive function study skills. Hill programs help students develop the academic, organizational, self-advocacy, and social-emotional skills they need to succeed in school, and in life.
Both in and beyond the Triangle region, our Professional Learning and Partnerships programs offer K-12 educators research-based instructional strategies and tools to teach reading, writing, math, and executive function skills in their own classrooms to students who struggle academically. Thousands of educators participate in Hill professional learning opportunities each year. Hill is placing an increasing emphasis on developing deeper connections and partnerships with schools, school districts, and youth-serving nonprofit organizations in the Triangle and surrounding communities.
