Helping schools create high quality enrichment
Flex Academies was created in 2011 by Joshua Chernikoff, the Founder and President of Ashley Tutors. Ashley Tutors began tutoring in area schools, and Joshua realized the market inefficiencies of school-run enrichment programs. In 2013, Judy Bunnell joined Flex Academies as a partner. Together, they grew the company, and were in more than 40 schools when Judy retired, in October of 2017. Today, Flex Academies serves more than 65 schools in five states.
