Request for Free Tutoring Services

The College Prep Institute (CPI) is a college readiness resource center located within the Center for Leadership Development dedicated to assist Indianapolis Youth Development for  students in grades 4 through 12, parents and community organizations serving youth by providing free resources and services. We are here at every point in an individuals’ educational journey – including evenings and weekends – with caring, highly qualified guidance counselors, tutors and other professionals.

The College Prep Institute is also open to the public; however requests for tutoring must follow the process below prior to beginning services.

Process of Tutoring from Beginning to End

Step 1:

Parent or legal guardian calls or visits CPI lab and indicates tutoring interest for their student. The College Prep Institute Administrator will then schedule a time for the student to take the required NWEA Assessment.

Step 2:

Once the student completes the NWEA Assessment, the parent or legal guardian and their student will schedule a meeting with one of the Center for Leadership Development’s Licensed Guidance Counselors through the College Prep Institute Administrator.

Step 3:

After the Guidance Counseling appointment, and if tutoring is an appropriate next step for the student, the parent or legal guardian will schedule 6 weeks of tutoring with the College Prep Institute Administrator prior to leaving.

Step 4:

 Once the student has completed 6 weeks of tutoring, the parent or legal guardian will schedule a final meeting with a Center for Leadership Development Guidance Counselor where they will complete a Tutor Participant Post Survey. The parent or legal guardian and Guidance Counselor will determine if the student needs an additional 6-weeks of tutoring, and if so – the parent or legal guardian will schedule the next sessions with the College Prep Institute Administrator; then repeat step 4 once complete.
