Why Halstrom Academy?
Personalized attention and academic achievement, along with individual encouragement and support, are the hallmarks of Halstrom Academy.
Our philosophy is built around helping parents who want a different and better learning environment for their child’s academic and social success – a place where their child can fit in and succeed. Every day, Halstrom Academy provides a powerful alternative for parents whose children may not be living up to their full potential in a traditional, one-size-fits-all school. We understand that some children struggle because of academic or social issues, while others require a flexible and more focused environment.
In the face of their many challenges and frustrations, parents have been turning to Halstrom for over 30 years to find academic and personal success for their children. We understand that each child is unique and that traditional public and private schools cannot always accommodate individual learning styles in their crowded classrooms.
The Halstrom Academy difference is that our learning programs cater to individual students one-to-one. One student. One teacher. Think of the perfect classroom with no distractions, no noise and no interruptions. This is the ultimate in personal engagement for education today.
Our one-to-one teaching environment also offers customized scheduling and learning plans that are uniquely tailored to your child’s personal skills, interests, and most importantly, their rate of progress. Our academic approach guarantees learning success through mastering every lesson, project and grade – so there is no falling behind.
Since 1985, Halstrom has helped over 16,000 students with a wide range of needs reach their educational goals and successfully achieve their fullest potential.
