BROADVIEW HEIGHTS, Ohio – The Huntington Learning Center in Broadview Heights celebrates its 25th year of helping students do better in school and unlock their academic potential.
Since opening in 1995, the center has helped thousands of students of all ages and abilities in the Greater Cleveland area learn the skills they need to improve their academic performance, boost their confidence, and succeed in school.
“We are delighted to be celebrating 25 years at Broadview Heights,” said owner Hernán Estrada. “I joined the Huntington family because of my desire to make a difference in the lives of children, and I couldn’t be more grateful for helping so many students. Our success is due to a great team, a strong brand, and a dedicated community that believes in what we do.
In 2019, the center received re-accreditation from the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools, a possible feat due to the results achieved by its students. The company is also proud to sponsor and support many local school and youth groups – from little leagues and libraries to educational foundations and school clubs – across Broadview Heights and surrounding communities.
In light of the effects of COVID-19 on students, the Huntington Learning Center has launched new programs – including online tutoring, Huntington Study Hall and Academic Performance Coach – to meet the new and growing needs of families.
“We couldn’t be happier to expand our services at a time when school seems very different and families’ needs for tutoring are increasing,” said Estrada.
Huntington’s highly trained and certified tutors provide one-on-one instruction in a wide range of academic areas to students from Kindergarten through High School. The company’s four-step approach includes a comprehensive assessment, personalized learning plan, one-on-one tutoring, and regular communication with families and schools.
Anne Huntington, President of the Huntington Learning Center, congratulates the Broadview Heights Center.
“Hernán Estrada and their team are doing a great job in making the Huntington Mission happen, as evidenced by their high approval ratings from parents and their impressive results with students,” she said. “This step is indicative of their efforts, of which they should be very proud. I look forward to their bright future in the years to come.

Feed the hungry: The towns of Brecksville, Broadview Heights and Seven Hills are once again preparing for the Yuletide Hunger Program. Now in its 38th year, the program is aimed at the less fortunate.
The program began in 1983 following the death of Rusty Mansbery, a resident of Brecksville. Rusty’s brother Dave wanted to thank his community for the help and concern they had given to his family during Rusty’s illness, and he wanted to do so in a meaningful way. So Dave created the Yuletide Hunger program.
But because of the coronavirus, Yuletide is different this year. Food will not be collected, so boxes and boxes will not have to be disinfected. Instead, the focus will be on cash contributions to purchase gift cards and grocery certificates for a turkey.
Families in need can call their respective city’s social services department to be included, but should do so as soon as possible. The deadline is November 20.
Last year, 380 people were served; of these, nearly 160 were children. The need is expected to be greater this year due to people who have lost their jobs and the lack of government assistance, which has not been renewed to date.
Make checks payable to Yuletide Hunger Program and send to: Yuletide Hunger Program, c / o Brecksville Human Services Department, 2 Community Drive, Brecksville, OH 44141.
Adopt a family: The holiday season is all about giving, and the Adopt a Family program is a direct opportunity to give directly to a family in need.
Adopt a Family invites a family, business, church or service organization to make Christmas brighter for less fortunate children in Brecksville, Broadview Heights and Seven Hills. And due to the coronavirus and the resulting loss of jobs and government benefits, the number of gifts under the Christmas tree could be lower than last year.
If you would like to adopt a family, call the Human Services Center in your respective city: Brecksville, 440-526-2499; the heights of Broadview; 440-526-4685; and Seven Hills; 216-524-4421. You will be matched to the size family you want.
The goal is to offer a $ 75 gift card for each child in the family. The names of the recipients are strictly confidential. Gift cards are due by December 4th.
Avoid cutting off the gas: Dominion Energy Ohio works with customers to help them maintain service during the winter months. Customers who are concerned that they may not be able to maintain regular bill payments should contact Dominion Energy Ohio immediately.
Do not wait to receive a stop notice. It is easier and cheaper to maintain the service than to reconnect it. Call 800-362-7557 for assistance and to learn more about government energy assistance programs.
