Since our ribbon cutting in September 2019, we have quickly emerged as the leading academic learning center in Southlake, Texas. We have helped over 200 CHS and CSHS students significantly improve their grades, boost their confidence, and chart their course through high school.

Chelsea Hall was founded in 2019 based on a vision by co-founder Alex Parker, a Junior in high school, who designed a new and innovative approach to the learning process that is less expensive and far more effective than other options available to students today.

Rather than try to meet the rigorous challenges of high school alone, our members reinforce their school learning within an academic support system where students collaborate with their peers and learn their class material in our small Group Study Sessions. These are taught each week by our energetic and experienced teachers, or they can study individually or with friends in our Study Hall with the tutoring guidance and assistance of our Student Tutors.

Our offerings include five separate services to our members: Group Study Sessions, Quiz and Test Review Cram Session, Study Hall, SAT/ACT test prep, and College Readiness Planning.

Group Study Sessions

We structure affordable group study sessions with no more than 8 students whom meet weekly with our teachers throughout the year.

Each study group contains only students who are enrolled in the same course at Carroll High or Senior High. We also offer math group study sessions for students in grades 5-8.

Our teachers have a deep knowledge of the Carroll ISD curriculum and tailor each weekly session to the material specifically being taught in our students’ classes during that week in an effort to deliver the maximum beneficial impact on our students’ performance in class and on their quiz, test and exam grades. Our teachers provide the study materials each week. Our members only need to come, enjoy the company of their friends, and learn!

We understand that each student’s success depends on great teachers, so the Chelsea Hall team spends a tremendous amount of time identifying and hiring the very best teachers. Study groups are taught by teachers who have both exceptional teaching abilities and friendly, engaging personalities that have made them popular with their students over their many years of teaching. We care about our culture, and seek to build a community that is fun, supportive, and encouraging, as well as one that makes a large positive impact on each of our students class GPA.

Cram Session are special study sessions that are held to prepare students for a specific quiz, test, or exam being held in one of their classes typically on the following school day.

In Quiz or Test Review Cram Sessions, our Chelsea Hall teachers will explain and review the important concepts to help you achieve your highest possible grade.

Cram Sessions are available to all Carroll ISD students. These sessions are added to the Chelsea Hall calendar each week when quiz, test or exam dates are announced in class. 

Study Hall

It is at team effort to promote the success of our members at Chelsea Hall. Our student tutors share their own good and bad academic experiences in high school, offer encouragement, and give advice to our members on how best to to reach their academic goals in High School.
