We believe that words are tools. If young people can speak, write and communicate effectively, they are poised for success in school, at work and in life. Research reveals that children from low-income backgrounds hear 40 million fewer words and spend nearly 1,000 fewer hours being read to before kindergarten than children from middle- and upper-class households. Students who lack sufficient language and communication skills are at a distinct disadvantage that will greatly impact their academic and life experience. Leap is committed to shrinking this learning gap by improving the language and literacy skills of students across Chicago and nationwide.

Mission: Leap Learning Systems is dedicated to results-driven language and literacy development.
