Why SkySlate ?

In theory, after-school educational enrichment is a fantastic idea. Public—and most private—school curriculums typically leave much to be desired, with crowded classrooms and a lack of ability to accommodate individual students' unique needs. After-school learning programs can help pick up the slack, reinforcing concepts and techniques established in school studies to help prevent students from falling behind, while often better developing their strengths and identifying and reducing weaknesses and struggles. 

Unfortunately, traditional after-school learning programs are filled with problems for students and inconveniences for parents. This is why we've founded SkySlate—a program that does away with wastefulness, one that doesn't require any driving to and from physical learning centers, one that offers both Common Core support and advanced, competition-level preparation that is adaptable to each student's needs, allowing our SkySlaters to study Math, English, ACT and SAT preparation courses anytime, anywhere.

Our Story

We’re not just educators at SkySlate, we’re parents, too. And as parents, we demand the best for our children. Like you, we arrived at SkySlate because we could not find an after-school educational enrichment program that suited our needs and met the high standards we desire for our children.

Along our path to founding SkySlate, we’ve experienced numerous traditional, brick-and-mortar, supplementary education programs. Unfortunately, our experiences have been disappointing. The constant driving back-and-forth to physical classrooms is inconvenient and sometimes impossible to accommodate, leading to chaotic, stressful schedules for the whole family, often causing students (our children) to fall behind. 

To top it off, our children (and we agree!) found traditional programs to be repetitive, boring, and lacking challenges essential to progress. Not to mention the extremely wasteful, paper-based worksheet packets popular among most learning programs.

Much like you, we found this all to be absolutely unacceptable.

Furthermore, we couldn't find a program that offered both primary subject support and advanced, competition-level enrichment. This two-track approach is one of SkySlate's many unique characteristics.

​We asked ourselves:
​Can we fix this?
There must be something better.
So we made something better.

WE MADE SKYSLATE!
