The Path to Successful Higher Education

A successful path to college is paved by:

  • exposing our children to the world in a way that helps broaden and develop their frame of reference.
  • providing them with different experiences that build their capacity.
  • creating opportunities for them to explore that which is unfamiliar in order to expand their base of knowledge.

The Future of Dallas Bethlehem Center

To be the premier resource for parents in South Dallas who seek to create a pathway to a successful college education for their children.

This year we will launch a year-round program focused on working with parents and their children to pave the way to a successful college education.

Summer Camp 2018 will be a continuation of this new initiative and will involve only children enrolled in the year-round program.

Initially this program will target parents of children grades 3 to 6. The goal will be to create and execute a year-round agenda of experiential learning and engagement activities that will put children on a path to a successful higher education while helping them become more academically competitive on a national scale.

We need your help!

Consider enrolling your children. Consider donating. Consider volunteering. Consider spreading the word.
