SAGA Innovations

“ The program also improved math grades, reduced course failures, increased school attendance and increased by nearly 50% the likelihood that youth were ‘on track’ for graduation.”


SAGA transforms the lives of at-risk students giving them the skills, the attention and the self-esteem they need to achieve.

Our tool is tutoring.

Not your average, once-a-week, after school tutoring, but rather “high dosage” tutoring:

  • Personalized instruction…
  • From professional Tutoring Fellows…
  • For one class period every day…
  • For an entire school year…

Like most innovations, the concept is simple but the results are profound.

Data shows that our tutoring methods dramatically improve what students can achieve.

Which is everything.

Because the ability to achieve can transform even the most hopeless student. And when you transform a student, you transform a life.

SAGA Innovations helps students in a very direct way. Students in participating schools receive personalized instruction in their regular school day in groups of two from professional, full-time Tutoring Fellows. In addition to academic instruction, our tutors mentor students on the behaviors, skills, attitudes and strategies that are critical to academic achievement. We provide regular communication to families, keeping them engaged in their children’s learning, and we address the needs of chronically underperforming students in a way that schools have not be able to effectively, given school schedule and staffing constraints.
