Letter from the Director

With the autumnal season upon us, I am humbled by the year that we had with the political climate and current events that occurred. Those events and experiences most likely have made a mark on our children. It is up to us, parents, educators and community leaders to continue to teach our children not just the academics they require but to learn to advocate for those who may need a helping hand, or just some support for a classmate like a conversation at school.

Speaking of academics, we are continuing with our strong foundation of courses that will supplement your child’s school week.

We strive to provide your children with great academic classes to get that edge they need to succeed. We always align our classes with the Common Core Standards and STEAM!

Enjoy the semester!
