School Reimagined

Welcome to a Better Way to Learn

At Futures Academy, we don’t look like a traditional school, and we don’t teach like one either. We’ve created a better way for many students to learn. Futures Academy is a private school offering one-to-one education and a life-changing middle school and high school experience.

We set ourselves apart with our proven learning philosophy, EMPOWER, which develops habits and mindsets that empower students to write their own future. Students, at all levels, find their strengths and excel in highly personalized settings blending one-to-one instruction and small group classes. Here, every student is known, belongs, and succeeds. You might know us by our former name Halstrom Academy. We updated our name to better align with our innovative approach. Come see School Reimagined.

Summer Reading & Next-Grade Readiness!

Reading may not be a priority for children over the summer, but it should be. Why? Summer reading is essential for a child's ability to retain material from the previous year as well as to increase critical thinking skills for the next year.

Resilience Helps Our Kids Thrive

Resilience is the ability to ‘bounce back’ after difficult times. It’s also the ability to adapt to difficult circumstances that you can’t change and keep on thriving. In fact, when you’re resilient, you often learn from difficult situations. How do we help teens build that?

As a parent, the impact of this school has been tremendous... there is less stress and micromanagement of school issues - for both parent and child and the knowledge that my daughter will succeed with the help and support she receives, and have a chance at the future she wants!
