It started in Millburn, New Jersey in 1996…
With the simple idea of providing supplemental math and reading programs for elementary-aged children, both remedial and more advanced.
From its inception, founder Michael Priddy knew he had to invest everything he had learned from research and practice, both in this country and abroad. He knew what was needed was a focused learning environment that would provide students with an absolutely new yet school-related context. He had only one goal in mind for these students: helping them to realize their individual potential.
From the culmination of Priddy’s education and experience, he began developing a new method of learning that sought to work with students individually, which removed the fear of failure and empowered the student. Bringing these key elements together and developing a learning method unleashed an inner desire in all students to learn and perform above expectations, regardless of previous learning experiences in the classroom.
