LEXIA is currently available at NO COST to students, and adults at the locations listed below. Interested parties are asked to register at their center of choice and complete an assessment test. Once the initial test is complete, personalized instruction will be given, included a weekly schedule. On average, Lexia's success comes from at least 20 minutes, 3 times a week. The Lexia program will track your progress, and provide detailed reports to facility managers, parents and schools. The best part, once you register, you can log in at ANY location and pick up where you left off!Lexia is a major part of the Chattanooga Literacy Initiative. When children cannot read at grade level, they are at a much higher risk of dropping out of school.

Lexia's Computer Reading Program is:

  • Free ONLINE access to all Hamilton County Students(must register at one of our Youth & Family Development Centers if your school does NOT offer the program)

  • Research-based, proven reading acceleration can help students potentially reach grade-level or above

  • Based on Common Core Standards

  • Video game like atmosphere, makes learning to read FUN!
