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.
