All scheduling is performed through our new website using our interactive online calendar. Here you can select your tutor, Chapter location and schedule your appointment. Tutoring sessions are confirmed via text or email. Each tutor sets their own schedule with sessions generally lasting 60 minutes. All tutoring is conducted in an open area of the library for safety and security concerns. There are no private sessions ever premitted off library premises or behind closed doors.
Each Athena Academy Chapter is organized and managed by a local Chapter Director who works within their community. We expect to have multiple Atlanta locations available to students by April 2014 in these communities:
- Peachtree City / Fayetteville area
- College Park / Hapeville area
- Buckhead / Sandy Springs area
- Alpharetta / Roswell area
Success at every level in life requires teamwork. And, we are grateful for the support, assistance and encouragement we receive from educators and communities we work with. Every week at local area libraries, our tutors dedicate and invest their time to help kids get the extra attention and skills they need to succeed and advance in school. Many of our tutors excel in at least 2 or more core academic areas in Math, Science, English, History and Languages. We try to make learning fun and engaging for each child, while also providing them a sense of camaraderie.
Athena Academy is a privately funded 501C non-profit organization staffed by forward thinking students, educators and volunteers. Founded in 2011 by Athena Cahill in Atlanta, our goal is to reach out to children in our communities by offering free educational tutoring services to students in grades 1-6. We focus on helping them learn, grow, advance and gain confidence in their academic studies and personal abilities. Our motto is: Kids Helping Kids through Education.
Athena Academy works to provide children the opportunity and access, to free tutoring needed to bridge or build the rudimentary skills required in elementary school to advance and succeed. Working together through our communities, schools and libraries, Athena Academy creates “Win-Win Relationships.” We strive to help children improve their school work, confidence and classroom grades which often leads to higher CRTC and SRI scores.
Working together is easy. Parents are required to complete the online application for their child. Both the parent and student will meet one-on-one with the tutor to discuss expectations and goals, and assess the subject areas the child needs. All tutoring takes place at the local Chapter’s library for safety, security and transparency. We try to match the student’s needs with a tutor’s strengths. Parental support is important. All parents or guardians must accompany each student for the duration of each session (usually 60 minutes), and are required to remain on library premises at all times.
