Founded in 1987, the Honors Learning Center has had documented success for thousands of students in the Chattanooga and surrounding areas. The center’s goal is for the students to gain one full grade level based on comprehension skills. Students on average have gained more than two grade levels in comprehension skills after only 36 hours of instruction.
In 1998, the Honors Learning Center became Tennessee’s first learning center to receive accreditation by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) as well as the Commission on International and Trans-Regional Accreditation (CITA).
The Honors philosophy emphasizes the positive by rewarding students for success rather than focusing on failures. Motivation and encouragement are the keys to their success. By eliminating the fear of failure, the Honors builds the necessary foundation of self-confidence to allow each student to be successful in the classroom.
