A Family of


Sophia Learning Center is a vision given from God to

our beautiful mother, Constance E. Brown, affectionately known

as Mom Mrs. Brown. Our mother is an artist, author, teacher, a storyteller and

most important daughter of the most high KING! 

In the late 1990's, while teaching in the charter schools in Cleveland, Ohio, and seeking the Lord for a way to help the children, God gave her the idea for the Sophia Learning Center instructing her to use wisdom principles from proverbs to train up children. From there the idea was born, but it would be years before the school would come to fruition.


In 2019, Mom Mrs. Brown and Constance-Gabrielle Brown left the schools to begin the Sophia Learning Center. God has been building this school each step of the way and sending the students. Today, the mission of the Sophia Learning Center is to train up children through biblical wisdom principles, traditional values, and engaging learning styles to become fluent readers, who are ready to learn, achieve lifelong goals and ultimately become world changers.


                                     Jesus came to get Mom Mrs. Brown in October of 2021, and we three                                                 daughters (Carmen, Soteria and Constance-Gabrielle) have vowed to pick                                           up  the torch that our amazing mother blazed. Until we meet again, we say                                         as she says - "How great is our GOD!" We'll carry the work on from here,                                             mommy. 

                                     - Love, The Mother's Beautiful Daughters
