Hello! My name is Dr. Kirsten Stein, founder of Athena’s Advanced Academy. Athena’s families know me as Dr. Kirsten. Athena’s is a place that helps parents like you educate their gifted children and helps gifted students like yours make discoveries, be challenged, and learn!
As you know, there are challenges in educating gifted children. Educating my profoundly gifted children was no exception. They were not being challenged in their schooling environment–to the point where my oldest child started to become clinically depressed in kindergarten because she wasn’t learning. I felt desperate and didn’t know where to turn.
I created Athena’s to help my children and others like them–to cultivate their love of learning and create a community of kids who could relate to each other, gifted children like yours.

Amazing families over many years have sent heartfelt messages about the help and support their students have received from Athena’s along their educational journey. I would like to share (with permission) one such message. I am certain you will find it as touching as I do.
