Did you know that Utah ranks 50th in the nation in per-pupil spending?
Success in Education began as a conversation about something very near and dear to the Garff family: the Utah classroom. As parents and members of the community, they recognized a very real and serious problem—an education system that is struggling: overcrowded and underfunded classrooms, underpaid and underappreciated teachers, and unengaged students without the resources they need to excel.
A change needed to be made—for the future of Utah’s children and communities.
Success in Education Programs
The Garff family gave us a great start, but since then Success in Education has transitioned into a robust public charity. The Road to Success, Keys to Success, and Code to Success programs were created as a way to empower our students with literacy, motivate them to achieve their academic goals, and equip them with the knowledge and skillsets to succeed in a digital world.
Because education should be less about textbooks and tests, and more about instilling a lifelong pursuit and love of learning in our young people. Success in Education starts with success in the classroom.Can we count on you?
