about-us

Your LOCAL Learning Center

Every Lafayette Academy is owned, operated and partly staffed by local residents who are active in their communities. We know the curricula and schedules of the local schools. We make sure we are a real asset to our communities, and we take our place in the community and our business very seriously. But we don’t take ourselves too seriously. A Lafayette Academy is a casual, comfortable place, full of color and fun stuff – even popcorn machines – because children, and people in general, learn best in relaxed, positive environments.

We hire the best tutors and we match their qualities and expertise to the needs of each student. We also continually monitor the performance of both our tutors and our students. We are, after all, in the business of bringing out the best in our communities’ young people. And we’ve been very successful at it for over 21 years. Our innovative SAT Prep and MegaPrep (SAT/ACT combination) programs help students achieve huge score increases on both tests!  If you love helping children and families, owning a Lafayette Academy may be the most rewarding thing you’ll ever do, just like it has been for our owner, Mark Bressler.

Curricula and programs designed to help students succeed

We’ve developed a wide range of programs and proprietary curricula that have yielded great results for our students. And we’ve found that while students may first come to us for one particular need, many will return for our other programs. Plus, our students spread the word about their success and how much fun they have at Lafayette Academy. Here are some of the great services we offer:
  • One-on-One Tutoring
  • Shadow Classes® — weekly group sessions that follow specific classes from local high schools
  • Innovative SAT Prep — nobody achieves higher score increases
  • MegaPrep — SAT/ACT prep combination
  • SAT Subject Tests — prep for subject-specific tests required by many universities
  • Master Math — an innovative, fun 2nd – 8th grade math program
  • Final Exam Cram — two hour semester reviews right before high school finals
  • College Counseling
  • Summer & Back-to-School Programs
