I find another way
I am a divergent thinker
With Arete, education goes beyond textbooks, as we explore project-based and interest-inspired learning to build a foundation on which your learner can rely.
From there, we build bridges to the next larger concept over and over until they have a network of knowledge to build their future upon.
Every learner is important and deserves the opportunity to create positive impact.

Arete Core Values
Clear communication about cause, effect, strategy, and purpose to promote students' conscious understanding of how they learn and where the lessons are applicablein their lives.
Provision of an uplifting instructional experience that improves the mind or character overall as a result of the engagement - intellectually, morally, or spiritually.
A safe environment in which students, parents, and educators habitually interact with genuine, sincere, and transparent words and actions. We tell the truth to ourselves and others.
Empowering our students and families with knowledge, reasoning, and skills in preparation for independence, success in the workplace, and to contribute to society positively.
Pursue Excellence with Arete
I've developed two primary reputations - on one hand, it's for turning around "struggling students" and for handling "troublemakers" well, while on the other hand, it's for unlocking "gifts" and adequately challenging "talented" children.
These opposite ends of the spectrum are the same when you lead with empathy and identify interest anchors upon which to build bridges to the next academic milestone. I'd love to explore your child's educational needs with you.
