The PGA professionals who founded the Garden State Golf Academy understand that even naturally talented players can have trouble fine-tuning their skills without proper training and practice. Their faculty's belief in quality training forms the foundation of every lesson, where teachers help players of all ages and skill levels learn or improve their games through individual or group instruction. They also back their years of knowledge with advanced teaching technologies, including golf simulators that recreate realistic 18-hole rounds of golf complete with changing wind conditions and muffled shouts of "play through." Cameras catch every minute detail of a player’s swing with vivid clarity at 1,000 frames per second, helping instructors point out subtle shifts of the hips and other issues that can impact the shot’s trajectory.

In the late 1970s career educators Eileen and Raymond Huntington opened the first Huntington Learning Center in Oradell, New Jersey. Their goal was to take an individualized approach to education, adjusting instructional tactics according to each student's set of needs. Their success in helping K–12 students prepare for exams and improve grades and study skills quickly spawned franchises across New York and New Jersey.

Today, the certified Huntington tutoring staff utilizes testing and rubrics for assessing each child's skills, academic needs, and potential for growth. The teachers even note the student's behavior in different testing and academic situations to craft a methodology sensitive to each child's learning style. Teachers also adhere to the company's code of ethics that stresses professionalism and confidentiality and encourages pupils to improve their grades honestly through dedicated study rather than shortcuts.
