“My parents brought me to LPLC as a struggling 5th grader. I was scared, discouraged, and mad at the world. I could not account for the differences between my perceived capabilities and the work I was actually producing. LPLC provided me with a remarkable gift: it gave me the tools to become the person I am today. The person I always knew I was.”

“Lee Pesky Learning Center saved my life. I came to Lee Pesky due to many academic difficulties in the first grade. Coming to the Center allowed me to have a safe place to learn to read without the fear of isolation or stigma. The center helped me adopt critical life skills such as self-confidence, discipline, and time management at an age when most children only begin to pick out matching outfits.
I am overwhelmed by emotion when trying to express my gratitude to the individuals who have helped me and dedicate themselves to Lee Pesky Learning Center. Thank you for helping me achieve my dreams.”
