Who We Are

We are a small group of dedicated professionals who want to help all children thrive socially, emotionally, physically, and academically.


We started our business as a learning pod providing an alternative environment for children who struggled with their school setting and looked for an alternative, small group environment to bring out their potential.

As a special education teacher in public schools, I found that the system neglects diversity in the way students learn, motivate, self-regulate, and communicate. In 2010, I started to work in the world of Cognitive Behavioral Health, ABA (Applied Behavior Analysis) and play therapy. I learned instructional strategies and developed my own strategies on how to discretely measure the success of my students. I was given the tools I needed to provide rapid skill acquisition based on the learning styles, strengths, and needs of each of my students. This is how COMPASS ACADEMICS was born.


As cognitive development goes hand-in-hand with physical development, soon after COMPASS AQUATICS joined in, and by now we provide educational, swim, and adventure programs for all children from ages 4 to 11.
