We truly are YOUR LOCAL learning center with personalized tutoring, Homework Help, Shadow Classes, ACT Prep, SAT Prep, and college counseling. We are dedicated to your children and we will do whatever it takes to help them thrive in school. Our tutors and test prep instructors know your children and the local schools. Our family has lived in Lafayette since 1986 and all four of our daughters attended local public schools from K-12. We were heavily involved in the community when our daughters were students here and now we are through Lafayette Academy. Many of our employees grew up in the area and attended the local schools so were focused on the local curriculum and requirements. Moreover, our students get fantastic results and we will do whatever it takes to help them.Thousands of students come to Lafayette Academy each year, and almost everyone comes often. We have MANY families who have sent all of their children to us for up to 10 years (that’s not an exaggeration). We offer a variety of tutoring services for K-12 students but mostly those in middle school and high school. Our programs include Shadow Classes for local public high schools including Acalanes, Campolindo, Las Lomas, and Miramonte. We “shadow” most math and science classes at these schools, some foreign languages. History Established in 1991. We started in Lafayette in 1991. Our current owners bought the business in 2003 and later expanded to Danville and Moraga.
