Dedicated Coaches


We know that students who are most successful in life learn how to learn and how to take responsibility for their learning and learning outcomes. Therefore, instead of teachers, we have coaches to coach them to success in each academic area. Most of our coaches have advanced degrees in their field or are active, successful entrepreneurs and business owners in their fields who are passionate about their areas and young people. They bring that passion into their classes.
