Project CLASS was developed by Houston Achievement Place in 1997. Since 1974, Houston Achievement Place (HAP) has trained hundreds of Foster Parents to teach social skills to their foster children. Beginning in 1997, HAP training expertise birthed Project CLASS with the initial Project CLASS services being focused in schools.
Over 100,000 children and adults have benefited from Project CLASS. More than 10,000 teachers, school staff, and early childhood center staff have received Project CLASS training.
Project CLASS is currently being implemented
in 60 local area elementary schools and early childhood centers, and positively impacting over
27,000 children annually.
