Beyond Limits Academics

Our Program

Launched in 2013, the Beyond Limits Academic Program provides highly subsidized one-on-one tutoring, primarily in math and science, enrichment activities and informal mentoring to Stamford Peace’s student-athletes and also to students attending our local public schools. Tutoring is typically conducted by Stamford Public School’s upperclassmen, including members of the National Honor Society, and college students, many of whom are referred by teachers, administrators, and other tutors.  Sessions are held at Stamford Peace’s Long Ridge Road headquarters, which includes a dedicated tutoring room and large classroom equipped with computers, school supplies, and other program materials. The facility also includes a lounge area with free Wi-Fi for parents, a kitchen area stocked with complementary snacks and beverages, and a fitness room.  Please click here to view our most recent program highlights.  *Note:  We transitioned to a remote platform at the outset of the pandemic and continue to support our students with virtual tutoring and enrichment programming, including our new remote tutoring teams.

TUTORING

  • We provide Individualized academic tutoring in math & science – generally two 1-hour sessions per week per participant, available on any day Monday thru Saturday on a personalized schedule.
  • Tutoring is conducted “peer-to-peer”, i.e. our tutors are high-achieving local high school juniors, seniors and local college students assigned to 3rd thru 12th graders. Tutors and tutees rotate – with pairings based upon our assessment of current best “fit.”
  • Tutoring sessions generally occur in our tutoring center. Currently we are providing all of our tutoring remotely and we plan to continue with remote tutoring session when school recommences in the fall.
  • Tutoring fees are on a sliding scale (see below) and are substantially subsidized for families who are eligible to receive free or reduced price school lunch.
  • Our approach contributes valuable informal mentoring benefits.

Our enrichment and summer programs supplement our regular tutoring and academic intervention programming. To be added to our mailing list and receive updates on program offerings, please email us at:
