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.

In 2019 we had 9 8th graders take the pre and post test with an average score of 16.  One of our 8th graders got a 19!!!
