Mission Statement

Our mission is to help primary, secondary and post-secondary youth with diverse academic and behavior needs adequately prepare for independent living.

Goal Statement 


Our goal is dedicated to empowering individuals by nurturing their academic growth, personal development, and emotional well-being through a combination of tutoring, mentoring, and counseling services.

Company Background

Certified Professionals Education Services, (C-PROFESSIONALS) was incorporated in 2016 by founder/CEO Cornell M. Barbain Ed.S because he was tired of feeling helpless as more and more youths with diverse academic and behavior needs continued to dropout of school at alarming rates. He reached out to friend and mentor NFL Hall of Famer Marshall Faulk, and as a result they decided to turn his research study (How Does Secondary Transition Programs Impact At-Risk Youth Dropout Rates) into alternative education programs and support services.

Our supplemental education programs and support services are designed to partner with school districts, business groups, and community organizations. We also pride

ourselves in working as parental advocates for our clients because we understand that due to COVID-19 and increasing work obligations some guardians and organizations find it challenging to help youths with both guidance and school assignments. Our team is equipped with state certified teachers and licensed professionals that have the ability to gather and explain information provided by teachers and school administrators in a manner in which parents and guardians can easily understand.
