Registration

Q: When can I register?

A: Anytime! Admission is available whenever you’re ready! Our programs are structured so that students can start whenever is most convenient for them.

 

Q: How do I register?

A: Online, via phone, or in person.

 

Q: When do classes start?

A: Each class lasts either 4, 8, or 12 weeks and students can start anytime.

 

Q: How can students start at different times and learn together?

A: We run “programs”, not typical classes; it’s a large part of what makes us different. Such programs are a hybrid of classes, tutoring, and independent study. While these programs have curriculum, they are also influenced by the individual students themselves based on what they want, need, and are passionate about. So if you join in the middle of a program you’ll only be adding to that program as a whole, not working to catch up with it.

 

Q: Can I register now for future courses?

A: Yes. Our special courses are capped at 8 students a class on a first come first serve basis in order to make the
best of individualized learning. Registering early guarantees a spot.

 

Q: How can a student start a program after it’s begun and not be behind?

A: We run “programs”, not typical classes; it’s a large part of what makes us different. Such programs are a hybrid of classes, tutoring, outside the classroom community work, and independent study. While these programs have curriculum, they are also influenced by the individual students themselves based on what they want, need, and are passionate about. So if you join in the middle of a program you’ll only be adding to that program as a whole, not working to catch up with it.

 

Q: Can I take more than just the courses offered?

A: We aim to create an academic path specifically for our individual students. If you are interested in something we don’t offer, let us know. We have a network of education professionals in every subject.

 

About Middle Tree

Q: What is Middle Tree?

A: We’re a non-profit tutoring, learning, and community center. We help our students with their homework or something they're interested in doing, and we also have our own materials to help get them ahead and keep them ahead.

 

Middle Tree thrives on its people. Most learning centers focus on workbooks and single track curriculums, whereas Middle Tree understands the importance of building rapport and establishing a relationship between its staff and its students. Learning plans are developed around the student, not the material.  Although all of the material is based on common core standards for each grade level, the pacing and approach is all based around the student’s individual needs and personality.  Our job is to have each student reach their fullest potential, not just recite information.

 

Q: Do your programs really turn into community projects?

A: Yes! We want our students to take what they learn inside our program out beyond the walls of the classroom and use it in the real world. This gives students the opportunity to apply what they’ve learned, and will help to cultivate a passion for their academic and social pursuits.
