As a parent, Olga was looking for an alternative to a traditional school for her son. Even though her son’s public school was a Blue Ribbon school, she loved its teachers, and her son was always a good student, she saw that he could be challenged much more for maximum growth. As an immigrant, Olga values a sense of achievement very highly. That’s how Blooming Minds STEAM Academy was born. Our classes are goal-oriented. Our goals are SMART: specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and time-bound. Advanced students are enrolled in advanced programs.
Today, over 1000 children, ages 3 through 18 received a strong foundation in Math and Language by attending a variety of age-appropriate educational programs that we offer.
