Assisting families, schools, and communities with children's academic and personal development
ACADEMIC DEVELOPMENT INSTITUTE
The Academic Development Institute (ADI) is a non-profit corporation founded in 1984 with the mission of assisting families, schools, and communities with children’s academic and personal development. ADI focuses on three areas of research and practice: (1) the school as a community, including family engagement; (2) personal competencies that propel student learning; and (3) the dynamics of change (improvement, innovation, transformation) and the science of indicators. In each of these topical realms, ADI takes a systems approach, integrating parts to create highly functioning wholes. ADI applies its ingenuity to the service of its clients.
