Intake Process

It starts with you


We want to get to know you

Since our goal is to cultivate and create effective strategies for students to achieve their academic goals and build habits that will enable them to succeed on their own, we feel that it is critical to get to know each of our students individually. We start the GOALS process with an intake meeting. Both parent and student attend our one hour intake meetings which are held with Phillip Roberts, our founder and CEO. Parents and students provide information regarding the student’s academic circumstances, attitudes towards education, and any other relevant information. Phillip provides information about GOALS services, prices and provides input on how GOALS will work with your student to achieve their goals. These intake sessions are conversations and we strive for a result of student buy-in to make positive changes through dedicated work.  

Continuity of care is important

These intake meetings are at the heart of our commitment to continuity of care and the beginning of the relationship that we form with each student. GOALS as a team cares about your student’s success. Together, the GOALS staff works to set up metrics and keeps close attention to student progress. We ensure that students are scheduled with appropriate staff that match both their content needs and their learning styles.

My daughter was going through a rough time and had a lot of anxiety around homework. Almost as soon as we started at GOALS her anxiety was reduced. She knew there was a plan for getting her homework done, and, since she was involved in setting it up, she trusted it would work. Laura
