The Athena Advantage


The Athena Advantage℠ encompasses an entire tool box available to
students to help them succeed academically, prepare for high stakes
exams, and give them the necessary critical thinking skills for the 21st
century workplace. Athena’s best-in-class curricula offerings include
math, reading, and writing as well as SAT®/ACT® test preparation. These
curricula offerings align to new and more rigorous standards, both in
Common Core and non-Common Core states.

At Athena, we will provide your child with a thorough educational
assessment and develop a learning plan aligned to meet the standards of
your child’s grade, both in Common Core and non-Common Core states.
We’ve developed the Athena API-or Assessment for Personalized
Instruction. Our assessments are research based, time-tested, and
administered with experienced educational staff. Most of the time,
certified teachers will tutor your child twice per week for about 60 to
90 minutes of instruction per visit. We work with students individually
or in small peer groups. We generally recommend focusing on one subject
at a time but will accommodate two subject students by parent request.
