Jackson, along with co-owner Vallerie Dean, established the learning center, which offers homeschooling and tutoring programs for students with special needs. The business, located at 1400 N. Coit Road, Ste. 1202, also offers camps during summer and school breaks with educational instruction along with life skills training and other activities, Jackson said.
“Our homeschooling program is for the kiddo who just may not be as successful in the classroom because they need more individual support, so that's where we come in,“ Jackson said.
Dean and Jackson used their previous experience as special education teachers to develop the curriculum used in the learning center’s homeschooling program, Jackson said.
“[We] decided to take what we [were] doing in the classroom and open up our own learning center,” Jackson said.
