Who we are


Focus on Learning is an education center located in Columbia, Missouri. We have  been dedicated to serving the needs of the individual learner and the community for over thirty years. We teach students—not subjects. We recognize that students vary in their learning styles and interests, and our one-on-one sessions are tailored specifically for each learner. Our students do not receive a one-size-fits-all program. We work with students from elementary school through college in reading, writing, math, sciences, study skills andACT/SAT/GRE preparation. We are committed to working with Columbia Public Schools both as professionals and as a Partner in Education. We sponsor the MAC Scholar high school program, which works with historically under-represented students in Columbia Public Schools, offering ACT courses at no cost. We also annually give scholarships to graduating high school seniors. Focus on Learning is proud to be a part of the rich learning community in Columbia.

“It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge”
