Empowering African Americans to Achieve a Better Life through Education
In an effort to make post-secondary education accessible to everyone, our focus is on African-American students – a segment of the population that currently shows low academic achievement. With low graduation rates, high unemployment rates, and larger disparities in income, the African-American community needs increased attention to help students meet their academic goals.
Alongside post-secondary educational institutions with a focus on African-American students, we offer a state-of-the-art curriculum targeted to individual students, as well as enhanced student supports, to deliver excellent, culturally-relevant education. African-American students around the world can benefit from our proven retention, high graduation rates, and even career placement opportunities following program completion.
While maintaining the valuable histories of existing institutions, we build on those foundations – investing capital funding and using modern technologies to bring these schools into their network. With our attention to detail, the intimacy and community aspects of these long-standing institutions are preserved and replicated – but their reach is expanded, allowing more students to access their quality programs.
Our focus on serving the needs of specific groups of students is what sets us apart from other education opportunities – establishing Latimer as “the premier choice” for African Americans looking for a culturally-relevant post-secondary experience. The resources are there to provide quality education to everyone – and our goal is to help African-American students achieve it.
