What Parents and Professionals Say About Us...

"In a relatively short period of time, our son, Elijah has acquired specific skills that have allowed him to express a variety of emotions through some short films he produced.  Jon has been not only a great teacher but a true mentor for Elijah."

Virginie Poritzky, Parent

"Jon (S.F.A.'s CEO) put a lot of thought and time into his presentation, and students walked away armed with a much more solid understanding for their film analysis papers. In fact, I heard Jon's voice echoed in their papers many times."

Kate Mullin-Phalen, SSHS English Teacher

“(My son) looks forward to film class each and every week, and it gets his creative juices flowing; He will forever be positively impacted because of it.”

Chris Farrell, Parent
