DULUTH, Ga., Feb. 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Due to Atlanta's recognition as a 'world city' and significant global impact upon commerce, research, technology and education, Kumon, the world's largest after-school math and reading program, established its Southeast presence with the opening of a branch office in Duluth, Georgia back in 1997.
This past month, the Atlanta Branch of Kumon North America celebrated its 20th year of bringing academic enrichment to thousands of children in communities across four states in the region.
"We are extremely proud to have served Greater Atlanta and the surrounding Southeast region for the past 20 years and are appreciative of the reception that Kumon has received in these communities," says Anita Scales, Atlanta branch manager for Kumon North America. "Kumon's mission is to provide as many children as possible with an academic advantage and love for learning. We wouldn't be able to do that without the support we've received from communities across our branch."
The branch office supports the franchise operations of 82 Kumon learning centers throughout Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, and Tennessee. The after-school math and reading centers in these areas currently provide nearly 14,000 local children in preschool through high school with the skills needed to compete in today's world.
Kumon unlocks the potential of children, so they can achieve more on their own. It goes beyond tutoring by actively developing critical thinking skills as children progress independently through a carefully crafted and individualized math and reading curriculum. Through daily practice and mastery of materials, students increase confidence, improve concentration, and develop better study skills.
