What We Do

We equip students who experience anxiety with the tools and skills they need to be successful and happy.

We provide accredited K-12 courses, coaching, and community to help students meet their goals and feel good doing it. Our programs are for all students, and we specialize in supporting those with challenges in the following areas: school-related anxiety, executive function difficulties, ADHD, learning differences, and twice-exceptionality (2E).

How We Help

We help students who struggle with anxiety, whether they need after-school support or a full-time alternative to the traditional school setting.

Using an empathetic neuroscience-based approach, we evaluate students' strengths and weaknesses and teach students to set themselves up for success and more calmly handle challenges that come their way. With a complete understanding of themselves as learners and reliable support over time, students maintain robust systems and routines to improve their academic performance and feel better doing it.
