What's New at Maplewood

Brighter Futures Begin Here!

Our Mission

  • Help children achieve their highest potential
  • Encourage independence and imagination
  • Foster a striving for excellence
  • Awaken a spirit of confidence and enthusiasm
  • Teach children to celebrate achievement

At GradePower Learning®, we understand how upsetting, scary, guilt-inducing, and frustrating it can be when your child is struggling academically. That’s why we want to start with two simple, potentially surprising facts that may make you feel better right away:

  • Poor grades don’t necessarily mean that your child isn’t smart.
  • Poor grades are often caused by a deficiency in the fundamental cognitive skills that make up what we call learning.

When it comes to developing these critical cognitive skills, forcing your child to “buckle down and study harder” doesn’t work (or make home a very happy place to be). Neither do traditional tutors, endless drills, or rote memorization.

What does work is teaching your child the cognitive skills he or she needs to “get it”; to truly understand a subject. That’s the core of the GradePower Learning® system, the only learning system developed based on scientific research into how children actually learn. The life-changing success it brings is why we love what we do.

GradePower Learning understands the challenges that may arise with motivating children to do their homework and improve their grades. We are passionate about awakening a spirit of confidence and enthusiasm in students which eliminates low self-esteem. GradePower Learning is committed to partnering with parents and teachers to not only increase scholastic achievement but to also foster a striving for excellence within the student.

We are proud to bring this opportunity to school-aged students in our area. This center is the first GradePower Learning to open in Minnesota and is unique in that the programs offered teach students how to learn rather than just pass a subject. Many tutoring centers focus on memorization and passing the current class, but GradePower Learning goes above and beyond simple memorization techniques.

GradePower Learning’s exclusive academic-based cognitive learning approach affords students a lifetime of learning skills.

This is the GradePower Learning® Difference

*Better Grades, Proven Results*
