Club Xcite is a private academic, social, and behavioral service for kids and teens. Club Xcite developed the "Xcite Way" teaching philosophy, which utilizes an educational skill building model while using a positive reinforcement approach. We serve children and adolescents who are facing academic, emotional, or behavioral obstacles.
We are offering customized one on one coaching programs for children with special needs in the classroom. Our Coaches are more than a classroom aide. They are motivators, collaborators, implementers, and most importantly bridge gapers. Their main focus is to cultivate independence while reinforcing the skills needed in a learning environment.
Club Xcite will individually design and implement the extra services that parents are looking for. They will handle the coordination between parents, Coaches, and classroom teachers; as well as track progress towards parent's desired outcomes.
