Tutoring and Enrichment Program


Children hospitalized at HSHS St. John’s Children’s Hospital have access to tutoring, academic support and developmentally appropriate enrichment activities thanks to HSHS St. John’s Foundation and the Horace Mann Tutoring and Enrichment Program.

Tutors are available Monday through Thursday from 1:30 – 3:30 p.m. to work with patients age four through seniors in high school.

For children under age four the tutors provide developmentally appropriate stimulation at a time when young children need it most. The tutors are retired teachers who volunteer their time through the hospital’s Samaritan (volunteer) and Child Life Specialist programs.
