These are meaningful days to the PFLC family. It is heartwarming to see generations of families whose lives have been touched alongside new supporters who have joined us.
Groundbreaking was attended by PFLC donors, families, teachers, students, staff, board members, as well as our partners on the new building, GLMV Architects and Eby construction.
Now, footings, floors and exterior landscaping walls are shaped and poured.

1 in 5 People are dyslexic
What does that mean for education?
Imagine going to school every day feeling sick. Imagine knowing something is wrong, but not having the words to express what. Students with dyslexia are extremely bright - they excel in much of what they do. They are so bright, in fact, that they learn early on how to "fake it till they make it." Until it's just too much.
That's where we come in.
Schools are for learning.
Everyone should have the ability to have a safe space to learn - even those with dyslexia. The Phillips Fundamental Learning Center is on a mission to create a space that empowers all children to learn how to read, write, and spell.
Through specialized training and individualized programming, PFLC is able to help students excel. We meet students where they are and create a plan to help them get where they need to be.
Phillips Fundamental Learning Center offers a space that plays to the strengths of our students. Students need a space that stimulates their creativity. They need to feel inspired and safe to explore.
More than anything, we must make a place for reading.
Effective instruction requires at least a 1:4 teacher to student ratio
The current space allows for up to 60 students to be served at any given time. Our new building will allow us to serve up to 120 students each year and allow us to double our impact.
Reading skills Affect everyone
Our new building will allow us to train more teachers.
