If you are determined to learn, no one can stop you. ARK Institute of Learning is a non-profit committed to supporting determined learners in their desire to overcome learning challenges. At ARK Institute of Learning, we believe this courage to continue comes from knowing that you have necessary skills to carry on in the face of adversity. People with learning challenges can be frustrated because they lack these skills that sometimes come naturally to other people. ARK Institute of Learning is here to provide students with customized toolkits for achieving learning success in and out of the classroom. Using strategic learning methods, ARK unlocks each individual’s learning difficulty with solutions that fit their personal needs. We are here to breakdown the causes of learning frustration. We are here to assess, diagnose and provide a lifetime of skills for overcoming learning challenges. Individuals with learning difficulties can learn, they just learn differently.
