Royce Learning Center was founded in 1970 by Harriet Royce, along with a small group of other professionals and parents who were advocates for individuals with learning disabilities. As a noted educator of the learning disabled, Mrs. Royce and her peers realized that education could change the life of an individual and their families, ultimately resulting in a stronger and healthier Savannah community.
For the past 48 years, Royce has served those who learn differently, want to improve their academic skills, or seek to attain specific credentials or certifications for the workplace. With students ranging in age from Pre-K to 50+ years of age, the Center meets the needs of children and adults with learning differences and literacy needs through its four unique programs: Chatham Academy, The Tutoring Center, Royce Collegiate Institute (RCI), and Adult & Community Education (ACE).
The Adult and Community Education (ACE) program serves adults desiring to enhance their literacy skills or prepare for their GED, ACT, ASVAB, or any test for work or college. This program provides support services for most academic endeavors.
The Tutoring Center offers one-to-one tutoring for all ages, subjects, grade levels, and learning styles. The staff has expertise working with non-traditional learners as well as preparing students for specific high school or college exams.
Chatham Academy is the only school in the Savannah area serving students in grades 1 through 12 with learning differences. The teachers are trained to use a sequential and multi-sensory approach to address the learning needs of the students. This approach is effective in any educational setting, but it is especially valuable for those who learn differently.
Royce Learning Center encourages you to visit or inquire about their programs to experience firsthand the level of expertise and caring their staff possesses. Royce Learning Center is an accredited, non-profit and United Way member agency.
