Hello, Ascenders!

I just wanted to take a moment to express my gratitude to ALL of you. We are so very lucky to work with such amazing families every day - I'm truly humbled.


It's hard to overstate how much we enjoy watching our students grow and succeed academically. As a company that believes firmly in the value of quality education as the premier remedy for so many societal problems we face, it is incredibly inspiring to watch our students persevere through challenges and reach goals they once thought unattainable. By learning new strategies, crushing barriers, and allowing their failures to be their best teacher, they slowly begin building grit and determination within themselves. We absolutely love supporting this process!

On that note, we hope you'll take a few minutes this month and listen to our latest Parent & Caretaker Audio Session about cultivating gratitude for our failures. It's a lifelong lesson that we can all learn from, and while it might seem counterintuitive at first, it's actually quite powerful. You can check it out on YouTube HERE.


While we are on the subject of gratitude, we are so very grateful to welcome a new member to our team at Academic Ascent! Shara joined us this past summer and is our new executive function coach and tutor. Shara is already making a difference with many of her students and we are thrilled to have her expertise, talent, and calm disposition on our team. Welcome, Shara!


Lastly, I want to thank YOU for letting our coaches be a part of your child's academic journey. Whether you are new to Academic Ascent or have been with us since the beginning, we appreciate the trust you place in us.


Sending you warm wishes for a Happy Thanksgiving!
