"CarpeDiem was pivotal to my child's success. They not only taught the subject well, but how to study. Great complement to normal course work."


Welcome to carpe diem academics!

There are many ingredients to academic success.  We have worked with children of all grades over 15 years to achieve their academic goals.  We work with kids to find a root cause of why they are not doing their best in academics.  This may include not understanding the material, disorganization, poor study habits, and lack of planning.  

CDA provides: 

complete academic Management
