Education Program | Building Self-Esteem

Achieving success at school is central to Lee & Beulah Moor Children’s Home program. When children can excel in the school environment, they are engaged, actively learning, and building their confidence and self-esteem.lee-and-beulah-moor-childrens-home_img25

Children in the care of the agency, whether in the residential foster home or foster care, have access to a focused, results-based education program. Staff and volunteer tutors work with children in a well-equipped library. Older children are encouraged to work with younger children on reading and math skills. The focus of the Education Department is to help children achieve passing grades, pass the State of Texas Assessment of Academic Readiness (STAAR) tests, and provide support and activities to enrich the curriculum offered in the classroom. The goal is to help children achieve success and develop a lifelong love of learning. Our tutoring program has become an epicenter of activity with children seeking assistance and sharing stories with their tutors/mentors about their school experiences.

Students are expected to study and participate in school-sponsored extracurricular activities. Progress is closely monitored by cottage parents and education staff. Children are expected to maintain a high grade point average.

Lee Moor Kids Excel in School

The results speak for themselves. In 2015, five students made the all-A Honor Roll and 12 students made the A/B Honor Roll. One of the students in our care graduated from high school in the top 10% of their class. Two of our students excelled in the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) tests. One of our students won second place in the University Interscholastic League (UIL) writing competition at school.
