School Notes

  • Futures Academy campuses are private, college-prep schools that serve students who learn better outside the traditional classroom model. We believe students can reach their full potential with personalized instruction that instills confidence, character and the lifelong love of learning. On our campuses you will find close-knit communities that foster academic achievement and personal development.
  • In education, one size does not fit all. When an instructor tailors a teaching method to the unique needs of each student, the chances of learning success increases exponentially. Futures teachers use numerous techniques to present course work in a creative and fun way so that the student retains the information and enjoys the learning process. One-to-one education is a great option due to more individual attention, less distractions, improved communication and increased flexibility.
  • Grown from a single campus in 1985, Futures Academy now has multiple campuses and is committed to providing education solutions for families throughout California. Majority of our students have gone on to attend well-reputed colleges and universities.

My 7th grader has been attending H.A. since middle school. We absolutely love it! My son is a full time athlete, but takes academics very seriously. We tried many schools - public, private and even online. In regular school he wasn't challenged enough and our busy schedule + travel did not leave any room to waste time. Online school was great and flexible, but lacked a social component and got monotonous. Halstrom was a perfect solution. Newport Beach campus is amazing - teachers are very dedicated and make my son want to learn, even his least favorite subjects. In addition, they have so many clubs and activities - daily yoga, robotics, sailing, cooking, leadership and much more. In my experience the staff is fantastic and very well organized. My son absolutely loves going to school every day. He is currently working at double pace and a few grades above in some subjects, he is never stressed out, he learns a ton (and I am one of those parents who is on top of everything), and he is a straight A student. They also have tutors who help them with work outside of his on-on-one sessions with a teacher.
