Capital's Education Department sponsors reading tutoring sessions and remediation for students in grades kindergarten through 12 at the Reading Center. These sessions are conducted by upper-level Capital students who are majoring in education under the skillful leadership and supervision of an on-site professor. The Reading Center started in 1976 and was funded by the Martha Holden Jennings Foundation. In its 40 year existence, the Reading Center has served over 2,000 students.
