Then they cite the educational literature with statistics proving that by reading, your child will become a better reader, or your child will develop strong listening skills, or your child will improve their comprehension. Of course this is true.

It has been almost three months since I have returned from my study abroad program from Ghana. Since then I have had time to reflect and think about my experience as a whole. I remember signing up for this program and not knowing anyone else who was going but I knew that I had to take this trip for myself. I’m glad that I was able to step outside of my comfort zone and take a chance because this experience was a once in a lifetime opportunity and has really helped me to grow a person.

Ten years ago, I walked into volunteering at a place called the Mathews-Dickey Boys’ and Girls’ Club. At the time, I had no idea what I was getting into, and soon got caught up into Mr. Mathews’s philosophy of offering children the best opportunities possible. City Academy is the result of the success of the Mathews-Dickey educational programs. It takes Martin Mathews’ simple philosophy of offering programs for children that will be the very best. That’s what we’ve set about doing, creating the very BEST school.
