Access to quality education continues to be the single most important challenge facing the District of Columbia and the greater metropolitan region. With a growing number of minority and low-income children in the area, the continued need for culturally competent education is significant. For more than 26 years, CentroNía has set the standard for bilingual multicultural education. We support children, youth, and families from underserved communities in achieving their goals, from learning about the world at age four to starting a new career at age forty. CentroNía's high quality educational and family support programs foster a learning environment that:
-Provide a healthy and safe environment for children while their parents are at work
-Engage children and their families in experiences that support lifelong learning, and promote long-term educational success
-Prepare young children for their first school experience
-Ensure children are performing academically at grade level
We are proud that CentroNía's programs are regarded regionally and nationally as educational models that exemplify excellence. Our innovative approach to education has proven to be successful with lasting positive outcomes.
CentroNía is a nationally accredited educational organization that provides affordable quality education programs, professional development, and family support services in a bilingual, multicultural environment to more than 3,000 children, youth, and families in the greater Washington, DC metropolitan area.
