Academics Plus has a mission of creating happy, capable, confident, life-long learners and the school selection process is where this journey truly begins. Our team's vast understanding of children's learning profiles and relationships with Atlanta area schools enables us to ensure each child has the necessary foundations to grow and thrive in their school setting. 

If you are considering applying your child to an independent school or are selecting a local public or charter school and find yourself overwhelmed with opinions, advice, and anxiety-inducing stories, welcome to Atlanta! We are blessed with many excellent school choices, both public and private, but a wealth of options can bring an abundance of anxiety and confusion.

While working with families from many of Atlanta's finest schools, we have had a front row seat to the stress that making educated choices for your children can bring. In an ever-changing school market like Atlanta. It is critical to consult with respected professionals who have real experience in understanding children's learning profiles and what environments will best suit their individual learning needs. You want to work with a team who knows the schools as they are today- not ten and twenty years ago- and who maintains active relationships within the Atlanta school community and consistently engages with families currently enrolled in the local schools.

In addition to these important credentials, our goals for each child are four-fold:

     1. To assess your child's unique learning profile, through our Learning Checkup, in order to fully understand their specific needs;

     2. To provide you with current information and context; the kind of "color commentary" that goes beyond school brochures             and websites;

     3. To offer wise and personalized counsel about how your child and family might fit into specific school environments;

     4. To present long-term perspective to families trying to make the best decision for their family while honoring their unique           child in the process.

We love what we do and feel privileged to walk along side each of our clients. We look forward to the opportunity to work with your family!
