The first pillar of the Explosion West Foundation is our academic support program.  Our Academic support program provides pre and post ACT practice testing for our 8th graders to our Seniors with focused tutoring and strategies provided to increase each kids overall test score.  


Our youth academic component is comprised of our reading club.  The reading encourages our kids to read 60 mins a week for the entirety of the program.  For our kids that struggle with reading we provide tutoring to help them catch up to their reading level.


Experience what college life is really like, visit a variety of campuses, meet coaches and identify what you really want in a college. ESA West Foundation not only trains students for success but also helps them build character and experience college life by taking them on annual national and regional college tours.


There's nothing like experiencing campus life in person to avoid making the mistake of selecting what you may THINK is a good fit.  We also use this opportunity to expose the athletes to football camps and connect them with athletic coaches when their grades meet the colleges academic standards.
