The Centergy Project is proof that community partners, stakeholder participation, families and educators can work together to provide comprehensive interrelated layers of support needed for students to have success regardless of circumstances. This support addresses the needs of the “Whole Child” and makes success an option for every student. What an innovative idea to provide in every learning community!
