THE ARETÉ WAY

Areté Education challenges the status quo by providing academic, social, and emotional support to students while working hand in hand with the school the students attend. We extend the traditional school day, week, and year with enhanced learning experiences that are fully integrated into school communities. We motivate students with aspirational and experiential learning in a nurturing but rigorous environment where they develop the skills to succeed in school and beyond.
