Experience Ability-Based Instruction
Our campus..."The friendliness and comfort of a coffee shop meets the fun and learning of a children's museum."
Why Advanced Academics?
Most importantly we focus on ability-based learning and meeting the student where they are at in each learning strand. We have also taken the Georgia Standards of Excellence and Paired them with the Pennsylvania Early Learning Keys for a whole child approach. Students will meet AND exceed what schools do locally, but with the competitive edge from up north. This additional curriculum allows us to include components that address what and how children learn including play, creative and critical thinking, emotional intelligence and the soft skills that will prepare them for a successful adulthood. When you visit the campus, we would love to show you some of the curriculum resources we use to facilitate our customized learning programs.
"Mom, do we have to leave? I'm not done yet!"
"Leave my stuff there, I'm going to write more tomorrow."
"It was hard, but now it's easy! Yah baby!"
We Create a Customized Learning Plan for Our Students
Advanced Academics was created as a place in which students could learn at their level and flourish. This is called ability-based learning.
In our morning preschool and kindergarten program students will find a challenging and engaging curriculum in our Early Learning Studio where they will be paired with students of similar abilities in each learning area. Student groups are kept small and are under the supervision of one of our talented teachers.
Students in our Elementary Studios program will benefit from learning experiences in reading, writing, and math as each child is placed in the proper instructional level and receives plenty of individual support from one of our exceptional teachers. Science, Social Studies, and Enrichment classes make up our afternoons. Students may enroll in K-5th for full day or half day programs.
We understand that each learner has unique characteristics. We have on campus speech therapy to serve your child during the day. We work with your child's goals as your learning partners to ensure they are practicing their therapy goals.
Located in the heart of Pooler, Georgia, Advanced Academics also provides tutoring for children and adults. Our tutors can help fill the gaps your students may be experiencing as well as provide for advancement.

All Learners Are Smart in Different Ways
Let's identify your intelligences!
There are other types of intelligences that we foster growth in aside from academic. Of course we promote learning in language arts and math. But, there is also bodily/kinesthetic, culinary, logical/mathematical, mechanical/craftmanship, musical/rhythmic, naturalistic, verbal/linguistic, and visual/spacial.
We also support high-ability learners. They are those students who perform at an outstanding level of accomplishment in at least one subject when compared to other students of the same age, experience, or environment AND/OR is characterized by exceptional gifts, talents, motivation, or interests. This includes gifted and talented, high achieving, and creative learners.
We will be supporting these many ways to be smart as we explore different learning themes throughout the year!
What Makes Us Unique Our FAQ's
Is the campus accredited?
We have not pursued accreditation. It has little value until college, or for high school transcripts are needed for college.
It is often used at private, elementary schools as a
shiny, selling point.
They do not. We believe that dress is an expression of creativity. If fact, just cover your important parts, choose shoes that promote safe movement, and your clothing should not be so precious that a stain or two would be a problem when we use art materials.
Do your students wear uniforms?
We are not a religious campus and the children will not have chapel or learn bible verses. We will occasionally learn about major holidays from many cultures including religious ones with very basic details. Most holidays are approached with the Americanized version such as Valentine’s Day is a day to recognize friendship or Halloween is a day for dress-up. Any specific questions about beliefs will be passed back to parents.
What kind of religious experience can we expect?
Your tuition covers all costs. We will accept donations or gifts to enhance our programming. Keep us in mind for gently used learning materials or books as your child grows out of them!
What school supplies does my child need?
None! We will provide all their learning materials for use at the center as part of their tuition.
What kind of fundraising will you expect?
Are there any exceptions to your services?
As a small campus there are a few things we are not staffed to do. We cannot provide support services for some learning disabilities as part of our regular classes. We can support many chidlren through one-on-one tutoring. Please reach out to us to consider if we can meet your child's academic needs in this manner. We also are not able to provide more than simple behavioral redirection for our elementary students. Any child that cannot self-manage and follow directions will not be able to continue attending. Please speak to us about preschool expectations for children new to being in an academic environment.
