Saga Education serves historically underserved young people through personalized, consistent, caring, and best-in-the-world tutorials that result in youth increasing confidence and academic strength so that they see, pursue, and realize their grandest dreams—and it’s working.
The University of Chicago Urban Labs rigorously evaluated our impact via large-scale randomized controlled trials, the gold standard in program evaluation. Here’s what they found:
Students learn up to 2.5 years’ worth of math in one academic year.
The opportunity gap* is closed by nearly 50% in one academic year.
Math course failures are reduced by as much as 63%.
Course failures in non-tutored subjects are reduced by as much as 26%.
Student attendance improves by as much as 18 days per academic year.
This is a game-changing impact against a national backdrop of limited success stories of improving academic outcomes.
* Opportunity Gap: Refers to the ways that uncontrollable life factors like race, language, economic, and family situations can create a disparity in educational performance, career prospects, and other life aspirations.
