Welcome! I'm so glad you are here. I wanted to take a minute to introduce myself as we launch Apollo Academy.

I'm Beth Ann Valavanis, founder of Apollo Academy. I decided to start Apollo Academy because I believe that the approach of Acton Academy aligns education with today's world. Having led companies for 15 years, it's clear that what they teach you in traditional school doesn't translate into skills for the real world.

Apollo has a proven method that includes concept mastery with real-time data tracking, a dedication to the Socratic method and hands-on learning that allows learners to leverage available resources, all things that prepare young people for today's world. This proven approach means that learners progress 2.5 grades in their first year on average! The extreme focus on the learners make the environment and experience nimble and adaptable, a key to success in today's high-tech and changing society.

Lastly, the freedom that Apollo Academy creates for my family sealed the deal. We can spend time outside of school as a family and focused on our hero's journey!

Let's get to know each other. Schedule time to chat here.
