A CHARTER SCHOOL NETWORK DEDICATED TO WHOLE LEARNER EDUCATION
Every student has the opportunity to achieve and
attain the critical skills to succeed in life
Athlos Academies is a social venture dedicated to student success. The innovative Athlos model enables schools to achieve academic excellence and financial self-sustainability in the shortest time possible.
The idea behind Athlos Academies began after co-founders Ryan Van Alfen and Jason Kotter became impressed by the idea of parental choice in education and recognized other needs within the education system, including developing the whole child beyond academics alone. To succeed in life, students need more than just book smarts, and Van Alfen and Kotter wanted to make a social impact.
PILLARS OF PERFORMANCE
Schools have the opportunity to educate students in more areas than academics alone. In addition to preparing children to excel academically, Athlos also prepares students for lifelong success by focusing on health and performance character education. For students to succeed in academics, and in life, they need to be more than just academically adept, and that is why the unique Athlos three-pillar approach to education combines Prepared Mind, Healthy Body, and Performance Character.
