Achievement Academy is the union of two envisionary programs. Local programs ACE Academy and Peak Performance Training Center/Peak Performance Counseling Center, LLC came together in both vision and location in order to offer you and your family three unique programs unlike any other in the Sioux Falls Region.
Achievement Academy is open to the public and offers revolutionary afterschool, summer school, and distant learning programming for school aged children ages 5-12. Achievement Academy is rooted in holistic approaches to child care, academics and child development. We aim to provide individualized care to each student in order to meet their developmental, emotional, social, and learning needs.
Families looking for high quality programs know that programming is not merely about crowd management and student safety. That’s why parents and caregivers enrolling their students in Achievement Academy can expect that their students will receive not only safe and structured care, but purposeful growth based care. All enrolled students participate in scheduled activities, academic coaching, and enrichment opportunities.
Achievement Academy is a distinguished program among childcare programs that aims to set the standards for out of school care in our region. We have reimagined child care where safety and fun are not selling points, but rather bare minimum expectations. Families who are a part of Achievement Academy can expect their students to strive for their peak personal, physical and academic performance. Students spend a large portion of their day away from their families and it's our mission to ensure that, that time is maximized, challenging and all encompassing. Conscious parents and caregivers are mindful about what their students consume when they are away.
That is why conscious parents choose Achievement Academy.
Tae kwon do originated in Korea more than 2,300 years ago. Translated, it means “the way of the foot and fist,” and as that name suggests, it was originally developed by warriors. But this ancient practice is about more than just physical defense. Children learn symmetrical body exercises for unarmed combat, including kicks, punches, jumping, and dodging.
More importantly, though, tae kwon do practice develops persistence, self-discipline, and kindness. Many participants will find an increased feeling of peace and balance. The right coach will teach tae kwon do as an empowering way of life, encouraging students to apply the social and character skills learned to their home and school lives.
Tae kwon do offers a vigorous workout for kids while improving coordination and balance. Injuries are rare because children naturally pace themselves to their current level of physical fitness. Tae kwon do does not require special equipment or weights, and children can practice anywhere.
We have witnessed first-hand how fast the results can happen, and we have also seen children immediately fall in love with martial arts. These kids have a ton of fun while simultaneously growing into responsible young adults. Here are just a few of the many benefits your child will receive as part of Achievement Academy tae kwon do training:
We believe in goal setting. We teach students to set “SMART” Goals.
The ultimate goal of earning a black belt is divided into small goals along the way. As your child works toward each new belt rank, he or she is learning about setting and reaching goals.
