Director’s Welcome

Academic Approach means many things: a commitment to academic enrichment, a dedication to high quality teaching, and the thoughtful practice of mentoring students. But, to us, Academic Approach is about teaching in the right way and for the right reasons. We have found that students do not score highly on a test simply because they or their parents want them to. There is always something more at stake—a competitive drive, a new sense of confidence, a growing excitement about learning, or the simple love of mastering knowledge.

We love seeing students—when engaged seriously by intelligent curriculum and supportive mentoring—become more confident, excited, curious, and driven. Of course, the much-sought score increases follow, but only after the student first has truly learned valuable academic skills, been seriously engaged, and motivated to succeed on and beyond the test.
