What We Do 

Inside each student lives a story waiting to unfold. We know every student is capable of shaping a story of success—in school, and in life. But not every student has had a fair chance to see it. Saga Education envisions a world where students–especially Black and Latinx students–have equitable access to economic and social mobility. To achieve this, Saga seeks to establish high-impact, in-school-day math tutoring as an integrated part of a student’s education, as a proven response to accelerating educational equity. 

Our research shows our program works–not only to raise math scores but to foster the confidence and sense of belonging that underpin all academic success. As a trusted leader in building powerful tutoring programs, Saga provides the resources and tools to enable all districts to take advantage of our expertise. Saga has the evidence and experience to know what works.
