Frequently Asked Questions

Flex Academies is the premiere provider of online and onsite enrichment, tutoring, camps, social learning clubs and childcare. With more than a decade in this field, we’ve enhanced the lives of almost 72,000 students across the U.S. and had programs in 82 schools in six states in the 2019/2020 school year.
Flex Academies started in 2008 as an onsite enrichment provider. Many schools have before and after school enrichment programs staffed and managed by parent volunteers, but after a while, the task becomes overwhelming, and volunteers burn out, or move on when their kids do. At Flex Academies, we saw a way to solve volunteer burnout and provide enrichment program management and staffing at reasonable cost, while returning some funds to schools’ PTAs to use as a revenue stream. So we were built on enrichment, but we do so much more.
In addition to both onsite and online enrichment sessions, where kids can explore safe and social learning in subjects like cooking, hip hop dancing, Spanish and yoga, Flex Academies offers onsite and online camps, online 1-to-1 and group tutoring, online and onsite child care, and onsite social learning clubs, where small groups of kids can experience supervised school work and enrichment. Flex Academies can also tailor enrichment and other programs to meet the needs of a particular company, organization or school district. In fact, we have done this for companies like Nestlé and a cluster of PTOs in Rye City, NY.

When many schools closed their doors during the pandemic and shifted to remote learning, many telecommuting parents wanted meaningful ways for their kids to be engaged beyond the school day, so they could continue devoting their attention to work.  This demand led to online enrichment and tutoring and, in the summer, online camps, which we call “Camp Reimagined.”

Safety is our number one priority at Flex Academies, and it always has been. All of our instructors, tutors and enrichment providers are background-checked and screened by us. We go to great lengths to hire what we call “Rockstar instructors.” These are individuals who are not only passionate about their subjects, but love working with kids, and know how to engage them, whether in person or online. When it comes to tutoring, our “super tutors” understand how kids learn, and, of course, they are experts in their subjects. Our unique matching system makes sure that your child is paired with the right tutor so that the connection results in improved academic performance and a love of learning.
Flex Academies follows all CDC recommended guidelines. There are frequent handwashing breaks and daily temperature checks. Our staff members always wear masks and children do when mandated by local health authorities. Surfaces are wiped down regularly. We continue to monitor the COVID situation and make appropriate changes to these procedures as recommended to keep everyone safe.

Flex ONE is now your one-stop-shop for enrollment and registration for all Flex Academies programs. You can also manage and modify your account there and update any information you need to.

Yes, most definitely! There are a few different ways that we do this. First, our Flex Rewards Program allows PTAs and other organizations to earn recurring revenue each time one of their families signs up for sessions at Flex. All the organization has to do is register as a Flex Academies affiliate, and help promote Flex Academies to its families. To learn more about the Rewards Program, click here.

 

Flex Academies also awards scholarships. In fact, one of our biggest scholarship initiatives is giving away free enrichment hours to the children of those on the frontlines of the pandemic. To learn more about this effort and other scholarships, please contact us.
