What if your child who once was able to read, is no longer able to on their own? As though they have hit a brick wall!

That's a reality for many kids by the time they reach third grade. Reading is more than a skill—it's a lifeline to a world of knowledge, connection and self confidence.

Meet Madi, a seventh-grader with dyslexia. This means that Madi's brain processes language and text differently and this makes it difficult to learn in typical classrooms, but STRIDE Academy's STRIDES For Reading Program worked for her. From struggling in first grade to nearing completion of our highest reading level by the eighth grade, Madi is a testament to what focused, one-on-one coaching can achieve. Without our STRIDES For Reading program, students like Madi may have fallen through the cracks. 

Did You Know?

  • 2 out of 5 children struggle to read.

  • 1 out of 5 have dyslexia.

  • Over half of American adults read below a sixth-grade level.

  • Nearly 1 in 5 adults reads below a third-grade level.

These are more than statistics; they're barriers to a better future—barriers we're dedicated to breaking down at Stride Academy.

Be Part of the Solution

We're on a mission to rewrite these stats, and you can help. We're looking to raise $5,000 to expand our impactful STRIDES For Reading Program. When you make a gift you buy much-needed materials, helping more children like Madi reach their full potential.

Our current funding source for our program, Strides For Reading will soon expire and your support assures it continues. 

Early giving starts Wednesday, Nov. 1st leading up to Minnesotas Giving Holiday- Give to The Max Day on Thursday, Nov. 16th, 2023. 

Make a gift now by clicking DONATE above.  

Together, let's build a future where every child can read, learn, and thrive.
