Program Overview

Project LEARN is a local organization committed to improving school readiness and literacy for low-income, limited English proficiency (LEP) families in Fort Bend County. We serve 200 families consisting of 200 parents with 300 children,
i.e. 75 infants and toddlers, 75 Pre-K to K, and 150 first to fifth graders.
The average cost per family is $2,882. Since 1990, we've integrated Early Childhood (EC) Education, Adult Literacy, Parent Education and Parents and Children Together (PACT) time into a single, unified family literacy program.
Our mission is to provide the information, resources, support and encouragement parents need to help their children develop to their fullest potential. Our motto is "Teach the Parent…Reach the Child!" This approach includes high-quality instruction and has yielded results consistently above state standards and performance levels. Project LEARN offers both day and evening classes on LCISD campuses.
