Project Reflect was founded in 1992 to serve children living in poverty and to transform urban America through education and education reform. Project Reflect began with a summer tutoring program called PREP.  PREP quickly grew to a year-round effort, successfully taking students significantly behind in school and bringing them up to read at grade level.

In 2003, Project Reflect opened Smithson-Craighead Academy, the first charter school in Middle Tennessee. Serving approximately 250 students in grades K-4, SCA offers children a top tier education with emphasis on math and literacy.  PREP continues to support the students in an afterschool program offering specialized interventions and a tutoring as well as enrichment programs like chess, art, music, and more.

We also work with the families to provide programs and interventions that support strong family function and self-identified needs.
