AfterSchool Academy (ASA) helps parents prepare their children for success in academics and life. Our Tutoring, Advancement and other programs improve grades, study habits and learning satisfaction.
ASA provides a customized learning environment for students seeking an edge:
- Tutoring by Credentialed Teachers for grades K-12 in our Center.
- AfterSchool Advancement (enrichment) Program for students in grades 3 – 8.
- Test Prep: SAT/ACT, HSPT (High School Placement Test), ISEE, GATE, CSHEE.
- Homework Help from experienced classroom Teachers.
- Monitored use of technology including access to iPads and Android tablets and Apps according to parent instructions.
- School Holiday and Summer Programming.
ASA's Tutoring Program begins with a student assessment and parent and student interviews. A Custom Advancement Plan, including tutoring in specific subject areas, guides the parents, the Center Director, and the child's Tutor. We also incorporate input from the child’s regular teachers as part of a broad strategy to improve grades, study skills and learning satisfaction. Monthly progress reports and communication with the school are part of the philosophy of AfterSchool Academy.
The Academy’s Advancement Program offers Decompression time, Homework Help, Mastering Core Subjects, and a session we call Explore, Challenge, Learn which includes structured, supervised use of the best technology (1:1 iPads for regular students) and proven educational apps and internet tools (Luminosity, Khan Academy, IXL) to help your child excel academically.
AsA will also stress character development, peer-to-peer interaction and teamwork. Our aim is to assist parents by assessing with them the educational goals they have for their child and to create and pursue a plan that balances the use of technology with an emphasis on mastering the core subjects. Student participants of AfterSchool Academy receive a Certificate of Advancement upon completion of a set of requirements. Private space for music and art classes, etc. is also available.
