Tennessee All Corps Grant

The J. Frank White Academy (JFWA) will partner with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Tennessee Valley (BGCTV) to offer TN ALL Corps tutoring for the 2023-2024 academic year.


“High-quality instruction accompanied by high dosage/low ratio tutoring provides JFWA students the edge required for college preparatory pursuits,” said LMU Executive Vice President for Administration, Jody Goins.  “The scaffolded academic portfolio and supplemental supports offered by JFWA suggest an increased probability of improved learning outcomes, student satisfaction, grade point average, and assessment scores.” 


TN ALL Corps is a grant opportunity to empower districts to implement or strengthen robust tutoring programs for students across the state. Through TN ALL Corps grants, districts can flexibly design their local tutoring supports within the grant framework to meet the tenets of high dosage/low ratio tutoring that drives strong outcomes for students. Eligible JFWA students in grades 1-8 will have an opportunity to receive tutoring in reading and/or mathematics, free of charge. High-dosage, low ratio tutoring that creates high-impact learning experiences, focuses on reteaching missed or unlearned content, and connect missed learning to grade level content.


Key components of TN ALL Corps tutoring includes but is not limited to the following: group size (4 or less), frequency (2-3 sessions per week), in-person delivery, and content focus. The BGCTV will facilitate and administer the grant. A partnership with TN ALL Corps tutoring also includes free online synchronous tutoring in math, essay writing and ACT support; free online supplemental math program for grades 1 – 8; and free online supplemental reading materials.
