Dr. James E. Sims Believes In Every Student 

Dr. James E. Sims is the founder of Outreach Exceptional Learning Academy which started as Outreach Daycare Center. With seeing the youth in the community becoming victims of illiteracy, poverty, broken homes, and single parent households, Dr. James E. Sims, saw the positive benefits of developing an institution that provides quality education.

This institution will provide a safe haven for the students and programs that can become the foundation of the community and the leading source in education in the south suburban communities. In 2009, Dr. James E.Sims with a vision in mind remodeled the institution to a private school which includes pre-kindergarten to eighth grade and 2011 he extended it to a high school. Dr. James E.Sims believes that a child is better teachable and able to learn through a safe haven environment.
