The LMU Family of Schools is dedicated to supporting our local K-12 teachers and staff through mutually beneficial collaborations.

FOS Accomplishes this Mission through:

  • In-class tutors/mentors for students
  • In-class guest-lecturers (e.g. Faculty from LMU to speak to your students)
  • College-readiness programs for your students
  • After-school or Before-school programs for your students (e.g. After-School Literacy Enhancement Programs)
  • LMU campus visits for your students (e.g. Lion for a Day)
