Meet Our Founder
Academic Warriors was founded by Allison Bruning to serve the academic needs of gifted and homeschooled students. Mrs. Bruning has been an educator for more than ten years in private and public educational systems.
"I started Academic Warriors because I noticed a need in the gifted education community. A majority of our gifted youth will never reach their full potential because educators and parents don't have the resources they need in order to fully understand these kids. If the gifted learner was allowed the opportunity to explore their abilities in their own unique way they would thrive," Allison Bruning explained.
What began as a mission to transform the gifted community later merged into the homeschool and roadschooling communities. "I had worked in a private school for the gifted and then started my private school for the gifted the following school year in Indianapolis. I came to realize that there are many parents who homeschool their children due to a variety of reasons. I conducted research in this area and found many homeschool and roadschool (families who fulltime RV and teach their kids) do not have the resources they need to fully understand their child's academic problems. I decided to create Academic Warriors with the intention to serve both the gifted and homeschool communities."
