FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (240) 654-0877
Flex Academies was recently featured in an article on Kid Friendly-DC’s website. Kid Friendly-DC is top website for parents searching for activities and information in the Washington, DC area.
The story highlighted Flex Academies’ 96% retention rate among its partner schools and the benefits of a long-term relationship between a school and its afterschool program manager.
In the article, PTA President Jennifer Eng talked about her school’s five-year partnership with Flex Academies and how the relationship benefits everyone. “You have your agreement, your contract, but there are little things you that go beyond a contract, things you can’t reflect on paper. Having worked with each other, we know how to collaborate and get things done,” she said.
Flex Academies Founder and President Joshua Chernikoff said that there it’s always tempting to seek out other options, but that the schools that have been partnering with his company for years know the value of their partnership. “Flex Academies is the premium manager of afterschool enrichment. It may cost a bit more, but our service and quality exceed expectations,” said Chernikoff.
