FUTURES ACADEMY - 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. 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

https://www.futures.edu/ 

We updated our name to better align with our innovative approach. Come see School Reimagined. Grades 6-12.

T.R.E. Performance

Our mission at T.R.E. Performance is to help athletes to become better on and off the court. By getting to know about my athletes I can understand how to get the most out of them every session that we work together. I will create a positive and hard-working environment where people can feel comfortable and safe. The athlete will be able to take away something with them after every workout or session; Even the littlest take away can ensure that he or she improved that day. By players continuously working through tough training scenarios the athletes to begin to build confidence and a sense of pride within themselves. We hope to instill other skills that can help with performance and everyday life such as mindset training and strength/conditioning. Our programs have seen tremendous success when looking at gains in performance, so I am confident if the athletes come with a positive ready to work attitude the athlete will see improvement in his or her game. Along with the athletes working their tails off, it is my job to lead and to bring an immense amount energy and passion every day. This is to ensure the activities we are doing are at the pace and level that it should be.

During sessions, there will be constant communication to make instructions clear, to understand what one is feeling physically /mentally, and to add some autonomy into what we will be doing. It is also my job to help the player reach an understanding about who they are physically and mentally. After we establish that, I will make sure to design the program accordingly. Just like the journey of life, my workouts and sessions are not easy. There will be ups and downs but there will be a tremendous opportunity to learn to become a better player and person. I am looking forward to working with you in the future and I am extremely excited to be partnered with Advocates 4 Athletes.

Mr. Test Prep

Michael Romano is... “Mr. Test Prep”: Elevating more thanjust a test score.If one thing is true for every student who comes through mydoor, it's that there is never enough time. With classes, teams, rehearsals,internships and after school jobs, no high school student is eager to take onone more painful and tedious responsibility. And the same goes for parents.

With the unending list of sign up dates, no parent wants onemore occasion for argument, one more difficult decision. Unfortunately, thetruth of the modern day college application process is that preparation iseverything. That's why after 14 years in the business I have come to realizethat I have two main jobs:

First and most importantly, I must build my studentsconfidence and improve their test taking skills. Second, I must take the burdenof motivation and planning off parents. Call or e-mail and find outmore!!!!

EW PERFORMANCE

Athletes striving to play in college must have mental toughness. Physical, technical and tactical training will only take you so far. Strong consistent performance is dependent on having good mental days. The mental game can be learned just like other skills to help you make a smooth transition from youth to college ranks. My mental training program is designed to give athletes the tools they need create sustainable confidence and learn how to unlock consistent performance under pressure.

I’ve worked in the field of Applied Sport Psychology since earning my masters degree in 1998, giving thousands of athletes stronger control over their thoughts and emotions related to their sport performance. My goal is to keep mental training simple and practical, helping athletes to put new skills to use on the field as quickly as possible.

https://www.ewperformance.com/

My specialization is with elite youth, collegiate and professional athletes. Over the years, I’ve consulted with collegiate teams, youth sport clubs, coaches and parents who are seeking to incorporate mental skills into their training. I specialize in working with elite female soccer players, but I’ve worked in every mainstream sport, and some not-so-mainstream sports including baseball, softball, basketball, hockey, football (youth and NFL combine athletes), track and field, swimming, gymnastics, acrobatics, golf, equestrian sports (show jumping, dressage, barrel racing), taekwondo, rugby, fitness competition, and endurance sports. I also work extensively with athletes who have been diagnosed with Vocal Cord Dysfunction, helping them to manage stress factors that trigger VCD episodes.

GREEN COLLEGE CONSULTING

Brooke Green, Founder

M.Ed., Harvard University

B.A., University of California, Berkeley


Brooke has been successfully helping high school students with the college admissions process for over fifteen years. She has worked in Undergraduate Admissions at UC Berkeley and Harvard University where she learned invaluable lessons on how to coach applicants and their families.

Through her own experiences as an undergraduate at Washington University in St. Louis (where she spent her freshman and sophomore years) and at the University of California at Berkeley, (where she transferred and spent her junior and senior years), Brooke learned invaluable lessons on the unique differences between the admissions process and the college experience at two very different types of schools, one being a small private institution and the other being a large public university.

After earning a B.A. in English from UC Berkeley, Brooke experienced the other side of the admissions process when she read and scored applications for UC Berkeley’s freshman class in 2003, 2005, 2009 and 2016.

In 2005, Brooke earned a Masters in Higher Education from Harvard University. While at Harvard, she worked in the Harvard University Undergraduate Admissions Office, where she observed the Harvard College application process firsthand.

In addition to admissions support, Brooke provides the emotional support that many families need during such a stressful time. She gracefully balances the parent-student relationship and uses humor and kindness to put families at ease.
