Experience that makes a difference

We have been helping your neighbors since 2008. Our name has changed, but we have the same great teachers and same dedicated owners, with more dynamic curricula on the way.

John Crawford

Director & Owner

After 25 years on Wall Street John has been reinvented as an educator – a much more rewarding career! CA clients appreciate his judgement, guidance and candor. Of course results are key, but having a sounding board to take some of the stress out of the process is also very helpful.

Sue Crawford

Director & Owner

Having launched our three kids through the process and into successful careers, Sue now thoroughly enjoys working with each and every one of your children. Families appreciate how she listens to help customize plans and, of course, the 24/7 service!



Here at Crawford Academics, we create specialized tutoring plans and help you to find, and prepare for, the tests that best fit you and your child.

But how do you start? What does the process look like? Should you be considering private tutoring or small group classes?

SAT Tests

Let us help your student navigate the upcoming changes to the SAT.

SAT Subject Tests

Your student has the chance to play to her strengths here. Generally, the best timing is in May or June, even for freshmen. Practice tests are the best first step.

ACT Tests

Trained tutors will instruct and motivate your student to reach her ACT goals.

Diagnostic Tests

An important part of the process. We use actual tests with clear, insightful reporting within days.

From study skills through test prep our guy blossomed with the help of the great folks at Crawford Academic.- Diane C.
The Crawfords recognize that brothers and sisters can be very different. They teamed our kids with the appropriate teachers and counselors to build confidence in school, make huge strides on the SAT/ACT and choose best-fit colleges. We are thrilled!- MJ
The team at Crawford helped our sons with grades, college essays and, of course, test prep (both up over 300 points!). But it was the inspiration and motivation they received that we are most grateful for.- Ridge High School Mom
Twins, one into Notre Dame and one into Boston College ... whooo hooo. Thank you, Crawfords!!-

Trusted counseling

Experience, judgement and honesty are not a given in the test prep industry. We always endeavor to provide trusted advice which we believe adds value and helps take some of the stress out of the process.

Academic Counseling

Meet with our Director for a complimentary review of the best high school classes for your student. There may not be definitive answers, but a thoughtful and emphatic sounding board can be helpful.

College Counseling

Ask for a complimentary session with a CA counselor. Finding “best fit” schools is our goal for your child and you will want a “best fit” counselor for your child. We work with freshman just venturing into the process and seniors looking to button things up.

Child Study Team

If you wonder why your child is working hard and not quite reaching expectations, consider asking how we can be helpful.

A partnership with Mindprint provides an excellent first step. Our child study teams are licensed, professional and caring educators to discuss possible next steps with you.
