Arkansas is our home

We opened our first tutoring center in Jonesboro and are beyond grateful to the parents and students who have supported Academic Advantage as we’ve grown across the state. Today we connect and empower local students and tutors from four locations.

There’s more to life
than passing tests

The difficult truth is that some kids in Arkansas don’t get the opportunities they deserve. That’s why JJ, David, and Adam created The Advantage Community Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to helping local students and parents by offering free practice tests, making books more available, and connecting with local library systems and other organizations.
