About Us

    At Athena’s Advanced Academy, it’s all about your children and their future. We help parents educate their gifted children so they can nurture their child’s development to the highest potential. We are passionate about teaching gifted and talented students, including 2e & neurodivergent students, and helping them to acquire essential building blocks for future success through innovative, challenging, and dynamic à la carte courses.

    Our mission is to create a stimulating and engaging educational environment that challenges gifted and talented students and promotes learning in a positive and rewarding atmosphere. Our enthusiastic educators design captivating courses that can be tailored to meet the goals in each student’s educational plan, including homeschoolers and those looking for enrichment. We help students learn how to internalize the learning process so they can grow to be confident adults with a love for exploring the world around them. Our courses provide a high level of information and allow students to synthesize the information in a way that works for them.

    Dr. Kirsten Stein and the Educators at Athena’s strive to create a warm and welcoming online community and foster collaboration between students, parents, and educators who are dedicated to helping gifted and talented students grow into confident, proficient lifelong learners.
