"We are educators that inspire a love of learning."
WHO WE ARE
Our world-class educators empower students to succeed in the classroom, receive more letters of acceptance and enjoy a healthy balance. Upper Echelon Academy provides individualized academic tutoring services and an accredited year-round program.
HOW WE TEACH
We individualize instruction and work with the best schools in the country. UEA utilizes elite curriculum and educational philosophies to build a unique plan for each learner.
WHERE WE ARE
UEA operates mainly out of New York and Florida, while maintaining a presence at major athletic events. Our educators work remotely with students across the globe and are willing to travel as needed.
Our mission is to maximize each child’s capacity to excel academically without compromising success in other domains. We provide our clients with a well-balanced, fulfilling, and intellectual experience.
Clementine graduated from Brown University with a commitment to developing a program for student-athletes that enabled excellence in both arenas. Having grown up in New York City with the opportunity to attend a private school that facilitated extra-curricular pursuits, she was eager to afford other students this opportunity. The mission of UEA today expands beyond this commitment to student-athletes but the company’s work in this domain remains unparalleled.
Kate’s graduate degrees in Business Marketing and Graphic Communications prepared her for an administrative role at UEA. With her own children in mind, she recognized the need for an elementary program that provides continuity and enrichment activities, such as foreign language and music instruction in a supported, child-centered environment.
Heather graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science degree in Child Development and Learning and a minor in French. As a licensed classroom teacher, she taught French for four years and Kindergarten for two years at the Episcopal School of Knoxville. Heather is the preeminent college and academic advisor. She enjoys combining her passion for education and her love of riding by helping young equestrians have successful educational experiences.
Meet our educators
As the most essential element of our company, educators are carefully selected to reflect the values and mission we so passionately pursue. We seek talented and diverse individuals, who have been successful in both academia and their professional pursuits, to act as mentors to our students.
