“The tutors are in constant contact with the school.
They monitor our children’s progress, assignments and grades.”
Welcome To AfterSchool Advantage!
More Than an After School Program…
After School Advantage comes to you from the heart of two mothers who are familiar with the difficulties a parent faces when raising children. We all want what is best for our kids, but often find it challenging, in the ever changing world today, with both parents in the workforce and the increase in single-parent homes. Many kids are coming home to an empty house. Even when a parent stays in the home, it can be difficult after all other responsibilities have taken their toll and we are just physically and mentally exhausted.
Kids homework has become more and more dependent on parent participation and evenings are spent going over, checking homework and even reteaching at some points. With all of the best intentions, we, as well as our children, get to the point of frustration to get everything done academically, while sacrificing leisure time spent together nurturing our parent-child bond. Though some parents may view this as part of their job, many of us would enjoy more quality free time spent bonding and educating our children on life experiences and having fun with our kids, which builds closer emotional ties and healthy relationships for the remainder of childhood and into adulthood.
We know how valuable being there for your child during their formative years is and how much influence it has on who they become as adults. We wanted to establish a secure place where our kids can go complete their homework, have a healthy snack and enjoy activities while spending time with peers and nurturing adults. Your time at home with your child will be more relaxing, quality time spent as you choose.

“When I was in grammar school I was able to do my homework by myself every night. I feel like the process has drastically changed to the expectation of parents assisting children with homework. I often did not understand the math that my son needed to complete for the following day and having to explain and correct writing assignments was causing our relationship to suffer. I became the enemy and dictator, always telling my son what to do and how to do it while resenting his teachers for not preparing him to be able to do his homework without my help. I stopped blaming my son, blaming myself and blaming his teachers and reached out for help. I could not be happier with ASA. My son has a positive attitude, consistency, tutors and a daily routine that he follows. I know this is a blueprint for academic success and am grateful for starting him in this program years before highschool!”
