The Montclair School Year is Over – Hurray ( mi )
While many kids are packing their belongings for sleep away camps, sports camps or just plain old planning to relax and decompress this summer, we here at Fractal Science and Math Academy are busy planning some very exciting programs for the Montclair and surrounding areas.
But wait – we first must offer a shout out to the Montclair High School Senior class of 2015! I commend you for your hard work and effort the last 4 years and wish you continued success in College, Trade School or whatever endeavors you have planned. The 2014-2015 school year marked our first full length year at Fractal Science and Math Academy here in Upper Montclair, and while we have been presented with many challenges and hurdles to overcome – it has been quite an adventurous and exciting year.
- We rolled out our SAT Math Challenge in Spring 2015 – this challenge is a rock bottom priced $100 for 2 full length practice SAT proctored tests and 5 – 1 hour classes (including homework) where we teach the tricks and strategies to improve your SAT score. Our goal is to provide top notch instruction that is inclusive of students from all different academic backgrounds. The challenge is on both sides of the coin – on one hand we are trying to provide the resources and teaching to improve your SAT score and on the students side – it is a matter of completing the homework and adopting the Fractal Academy approach to dominating this crucial exam. We had two students who improved their SAT score over this 5 week program by over 100 points!!
- We also premiered our Free Saturday in the Lab program at our Fractal Academy Upper Montclair location. Our goal is to get kids involved in Science at a young age by providing free ~1 hour Science (Physics, Chemistry, Biology) based labs for kids younger than High School, with a mission of provoking thought, fun and interest in Science taught by passionate veteran educators. All of our sections booked up in the Spring and were a great success. We can’t wait until our summer Saturdays at the lab – which are already sold out!
So what does Fractal Academy have planned for the summer besides Saturdays in the Lab?

Fractal Academy Reviews
As a second bachelor's degree student working full-time and taking night classes, and having majored in English the first time around, I thought there was no way I could pass Organic Chemistry. But thanks to Kevin, I not only passed but I got an A in the class. Sessions with Kevin were so efficient and so helpful that he made sense of everything I learned over the course of three or four weeks in about two hours. Combined, Kevin's time management skills and vast knowledge of organic chem (and tips for memorizing and understanding the material) make him an awesome tutor. I don't know how I could have gotten through the class without him.
In addition to offering excellent customized tutoring, my son has greatly benefited from the comprehensive college counseling provided by Dan. Starting in junior year, Dan helped us navigate the scary world of preparing for college. By creating a calendar with important dates, helping to match career interests with appropriate schools, focused academic criteria, resume and essay preparation and much more, we are able to have tools and resources necessary every step of the way.
