Every Lafayette Academy is owned, operated and partly staffed by local residents who are active in their communities. We know the curricula and schedules of the local schools. We make sure we are a real asset to our communities, and we take our place in the community and our business very seriously. But we don’t take ourselves too seriously. A Lafayette Academy is a casual, comfortable place, full of color and fun stuff – even popcorn machines – because children, and people in general, learn best in relaxed, positive environments.
We hire the best tutors and we match their qualities and expertise to the needs of each student. We also continually monitor the performance of both our tutors and our students. We are, after all, in the business of bringing out the best in our communities’ young people. And we’ve been very successful at it for over 21 years. Our innovative SAT Prep and MegaPrep (SAT/ACT combination) programs help students achieve huge score increases on both tests! If you love helping children and families, owning a Lafayette Academy may be the most rewarding thing you’ll ever do, just like it has been for our owner, Mark Bressler.
Curricula and programs designed to help students succeed
We’ve developed a wide range of programs and proprietary curricula that have yielded great results for our students. And we’ve found that while students may first come to us for one particular need, many will return for our other programs. Plus, our students spread the word about their success and how much fun they have at Lafayette Academy. Here are some of the great services we offer:
- One-on-One Tutoring
- Shadow Classes® — weekly group sessions that follow specific classes from local high schools
- Innovative SAT Prep — nobody achieves higher score increases
- MegaPrep — SAT/ACT prep combination
- SAT Subject Tests — prep for subject-specific tests required by many universities
- Master Math — an innovative, fun 2nd – 8th grade math program
- Final Exam Cram — two hour semester reviews right before high school finals
- College Counseling
- Summer & Back-to-School Programs
We’re committed to your success.
We’ve developed operational systems and procedures for hiring/staffing, tutor recruitment, scheduling, accounting, payroll, human resources, administration, site selection and more.
Lafayette Academy has a powerful set of robust, cloud-based systems, including online scheduling & registration, email, tutor/student tracking, VOIP, intranet, and back-end integration. All of these systems have been specially configured to help our learning centers run smoothly and efficiently.
From the day you open your learning center’s doors, you’ll have the benefit of Lafayette Academy’s established marketing methods. You’ll have access to professionally created templates for email campaigns and direct mail postcards to help you build your business. We’ll also provide you with a marketing calendar for each of our services, so you promote the right services for each stage of the school year.
