About the Delany Center for Educational Enrichment

The Delany Center for Educational Enrichment was founded in 1972 by Sister St. John Delany, PhD, associate professor in the School of Education at Pace University. The Delany Center was originally named the Center for Literacy Enrichment and was established to help improve the developmental reading skills of children in White Plains, New York. In the years since, the Delany Center at Pace University has broadened its reach to serve thousands of students throughout Westchester, Putnam, Fairfield, and Rockland counties. All instruction is delivered by tutors and teachers certified by the State of New York. Programming takes place at the Education House on Pace University's Law School campus in White Plains. The Delany Center is the only full-service program in Westchester County affiliated with a private, four-year university and law school.

Sr. M. St. John Delany is a tenured associate professor in the School of Education at Pace University, founder and director of the Delany Center, and a member of the Sisters of the Divine Compassion. She has also served as the faculty chair in the School of Education. A strong record of accomplishments in tutoring and teaching has made her a key player in the development of community-based programming in Westchester County, and a recognized leader in the literacy instruction field.

The Delany Center for Educational Enrichment strives to make learning a reality by building each child's self-esteem and inspiring children to become lifelong learners. We envision becoming the preferred provider of educational services in Westchester County, setting the standard of academic excellence by providing quality instruction to learners of all ages. The Center views children as individuals with respect to their academic needs, and we tailor our instruction accordingly. Our highly qualified staff members remain current on the most recent methods and research.
