Registration and Enrollment

Registration and enrollment information for programs offered by the Literacy Centers.

Registration and Fee Information

The two T4U sites and the two GEAR-UP sites are limited to students enrolled in those schools.  The school identifies students who are eligible to participate in the program. 

The literacy center on Cardinal Stritch University's main campus in Glendale accepts    K-12 students from public, charter, or choice schools.  Homeschooled children are also eligible to attend the program.  Fourteen sessions are held once a week, either after school (Tuesday or Thursday) or on Saturday mornings for the fall and spring semesters. Summer classes meet twice a week for six weeks from mid-June through July.  Classes are 90 minutes in length.         

New students are tested before instruction begins. To initiate testing, you will need to complete the following:

Student who qualify for free or reduced meals according to Federal Guidelines are eligible to participate in the Practicum Program.  In this program, students work with university undergraduate or graduate students under the direction of highly trained master instructors and a university assistant professor. Twelve 90-minute lessons are delivered during each session.

Confidential, Objective Evaluation

Before instruction begins, we assess a child's reading ability, strengths, and needs. If we find that he or she has needs other than reading, we will provide a referral to another resource and serve as an advocate for the child if desired.

Instruction Based on Continuous Assessment

After the initial evaluation, we design an intervention plan to meet each students situation. Our master instructors and graduate students (experienced teachers completing Wisconsin Certification in reading teaching) carry out that plan in individual sessions. Progress is continually evaluated. We do not hesitate to modify a lesson if a student’s progress indicates the need.


  • Spring session—Mid-January to mid-May
