We build confidence

It’s our mission

Whether a part of our after-school academic coaching center, or a full-time student in our college preparatory school, your child will come away a confident learner.

Using a heart-centered approach that honors students as individuals, we meet them where they are—academically, emotionally, and developmentally—by customizing programs that provide a rigorous curriculum while allowing them to learn and develop at their own pace.

PORTRAIT OF A STUDENT | Perfect 36 on the ACT

Marie, a student in our coaching center, applied to college Math, Data Science, and Actuarial programs. She was accepted at UCLA, UC Irvine, UC San Diego, UC Santa Barbara, and UC Santa Cruz, and waitlisted at Purdue for the actuarial science track.

Because her goal is to obtain a degree in actuarial science, she accepted the offer to be a part of the actuarial program at UCSB. Having passed several APs, she is on track to graduate in 3 years and possibly, with a GPA of 3.2+, qualify for a Master’s in just two additional years.
