Ready for School Success

Head Start Academy

Hard Outcomes: Ensure children are academically and socially prepared to succeed in kindergarten. All CUL Head Start graduates enter school reading or reading ready.

Objectives: Provide high quality educational experiences to pre-schoolers from low income families. Support overall success with social, behavioral and health evaluations and interventions. Stabilize the entire family by connecting parents to other needed resources. Close the achievement gap.

Approach: CUL’s comprehensive, proven curriculum advances every child’s social/emotional, cognitive and physical development as measured by regular assessments. Engage parents and equip them with skills and tools to help them truly be their child’s first teacher. Also link parents to other services that support family self-sufficiency.

Evidence: In addition to achieving critical educational outcomes, all three sites have earned the highest quality rating — 5-stars — by the Ohio Step Up To Quality Initiative.
