Do you need virtual learning support at home?

With most schools starting the year later than expected or online, a lot of families are now struggling to juggle the responsibilities of work, childcare, and online learning, while also trying to keep their households running smoothly. Sound familiar?

The unprecedented circumstances of COVID-19 have caused families all over the country to start thinking outside the box by creating neighborhood pods to provide structure and educational support for their children until things get back to normal. If this is something your family is interested in learning more about, Learning Lab can help!

For over 35 years, Learning Lab has been providing solutions to help local families with their educational needs. You provide the space, set the time, and identify the small group of students you feel comfortable participating with, and we’ll provide the supervision and assistance with one of our coaches.

We know that you want to provide a safe place for your children to learn during the day. A place where they’ll be supervised and get assistance with their online learning platform. But, we also know that you are busy and overwhelmed. Learning Lab is here to help.

Safety is our priority

In-person classes at our private school, Gateway Academy, are in session. We also offer tutoring and test prep sessions, as well as conduct educational assessments, in-person. These are the COVID-19 safety measures we are taking at the Learning Lab:

Social Distancing
We will continue to adhere to social distancing guidelines while limiting the number of visitors and people waiting in our lobby.

Cleaning and Sanitizing
We will clean and sanitize high traffic surfaces and areas on a routine basis, and our teachers will clean and sanitize their class areas in between every session. Hand sanitizer is also widely available.

Safety Precautions
To ensure increased protection, we have implemented temperature screenings at our front desk, as well as one-way hallways where possible (please follow the signs and arrows posted). For the health and safety of everyone, we request that anyone entering the Learning Lab agrees to wear a mask.


If you are looking for a completely different option for school this year, Gateway Academy is a fully accredited small private school. We provide learning options to address needs, so students can continue their education and experience academic success.

Accredited Private School: Gateway Academy

Need another option for school? Gateway Academy is a solution.

Going back to school is usually an exciting time, however, COVID-19 has caused a lot of uncertainty and anxiety for families. Are you worried about whether your child will be safe, or how they’ll respond to remote learning, given the number of students who’ll need to be accommodated at the same time?

Gateway Academy’s Gateway Your Way is an innovative approach, which allows parents to choose the right fit for their child by choosing one of three tiered options depending on the needs of each family.  Gateway Academy is an accredited, full-time private school that operates year-round on your family’s schedule.  Your child can attend school in person, or online, on a schedule that works best for them and your entire family. 

Independent Learning (Grades 9th and 10th)

Supported Learning (Grades 7th-10th)
Students learn at a structured pace within a supportive small group.

Customized Learning (offered for K-12 grades)

Online Tutoring at Learning Lab helps your student to continue to progress in their studies with a professional educator in live sessions, while safely at home during this crisis.

Is Your Child Struggling in School?

The educational shifts that have occurred this year due to COVID-19 have been overwhelming. Many students struggled when the spring semester was cut in half, and with several Middle Tennessee schools beginning their year online, learning gaps are expected to grow larger.

Families want to know how far behind their children are, or whether they may have a learning difference that prevents them from keeping pace with their peers. Our psychologists and examiners provide families with answers and insights regarding their student’s strengths and challenges, as well as evidence-based recommendations for addressing them, so they can feel confident their child experiences success in school.

We understand how difficult it is to watch a child fall behind in school. For more than three decades, thousands of families have turned to the Learning Lab’s Assessment Center to understand the academic difficulties their children face. Our comprehensive educational evaluations help families find out if their child is on track academically.

If you’re worried that your child has been struggling with learning issues – or you’ve been struggling to watch them each day – help is available. For a no-obligation discussion or to schedule an appointment, contact Amy Johnston, Assessment Coordinator at the Learning Lab, at 615-970-9984, or email [email protected]. We offer fast scheduling and Saturday appointments by request.
