K-12 Programs


Enrichment as well as Remedial K-12th grade programs available. It's so much more than tutoring because A+ instruction is diagnostic and prescriptive, based on each learner's individual needs. This research-based, data-driven instruction commits to achieving specific, written goals or else continuing instruction for free until such goals are met. Progress is certain based on measureable, documented, academic growth since 1991.

Academics Plus was founded in 1991 by Melinda and Mark Crenwelge. Melinda, who holds a doctoral degree in reading, and Mark, a master's degree in mathematics, had worked as educators in the Dallas area since the early 1980's. As parents and active members of their community, the Crenwelge's understood the value and importance of a quality education. Stephanie Talley joined Melinda in 2013 as instructor, moving quickly to Assistant Director, and then Director. She purchased A+ in 2015. Her goal remains the same: positively impacting the lives of A+ students, their families and the local community by dramatically increasing each student's academic performance in the classroom.
