Where can I register my child?

I was put on a waiting list. Now what?

If you were put on our waiting list, don’t worry! We will reach out to you as soon as a spot becomes available. In the meantime, you can always explore our one-on-one reading support services..

How qualified is my child’s instructor?

At Vested Academics, kindness and credentials count. All our reading instructors have master’s degrees or higher, certifications in either the Orton-Gillingham Method or Wilson Reading System program, and at least 10 years of experience in their respective fields.

Warm, patient, and professional, our instructors know how to keep young students engaged, facilitate a positive group dynamic, and, of course, make learning fun!

What about scheduling? When will my child’s class meet?

During your initial consultation, our Center Coordinator will go over our current openings and help you select the days and times that are right for you.

Can I drop off my child or should I stay for the entire class?

Each child has different needs, which is why we ask parents of rising second graders to remain at our learning center for their child’s first class. Once your child feels comfortable, you are welcome to drop them off for their other classes or continue waiting in our parent lounge (which has plenty of free coffee, high speed internet, and comfortable seating).

Do you offer one-on-one reading support?

Yes, we do! You can learn more about our one-on-one reading support services on our website. If you would like to speak with someone, simply fill out the following form and a member of our team will reach out to answer your questions and discuss next steps:
