About Us

Holistic Learning is a team of passionate professionals who want to help high school students live healthy, happy, and stress-free lives. We offer a wide range of services to prepare them for college, jobs, and beyond.

Our Mission

At Holistic Learning, we want to help create a generation of purposeful, confident, and happy young people who are ready to take on the many issues our world faces. By integrating services in multiple domains – academics, wellness, and career development – we aim to help students find their unique paths in life.

1-on-1 Tutoring

By offering 1-on-1 tutoring sessions with top tier tutors, we aim to provide students with both the knowledge they need to succeed in their classes, and the tools they need to thrive academically beyond high school.

Learning Strategies

Learning, like everything, is a skill that can be honed over time. Our trained learning strategist provides students with evidence based note-taking techniques, study strategies, and problem solving approaches which can help them learn more easily, efficiently, and effectively.

Meditation & Wellness

Our mindfulness meditation courses, goal-setting sessions, and stress management seminars are designed to help students find peace and calm, which will prepare them to take on challenges with confidence and resolve. We believe that a centered mind is a prerequisite for true success.

Guidance Counseling

Our college & career counselors have years of experience helping students make tough decisions about their futures. By providing engaging informational videos, group advising sessions, and individual counseling, they are here to make sure students feel confident in their choices about college and beyond.

Career Development

There are thousands of careers out there for students to choose from, but navigating these seemingly endless options can be daunting and stressful. Career seminars with professionals from dozens of fields help expose students to career paths they might otherwise never be exposed to, and help them establish a network of connections that they can lean on for years to come.
