While our services are focused on individual students and personal academic development, we would be remiss to ignore the three major groups involved in the educational process.

We have found that properly engaging parents, effectively training teachers, and optimizing school administration can dramatically boost to the academic success of each student.

Engaging Parents

Our educational programs provide parents and students with multiple excellent options for homeschool education. Whether you choose Curriculum Only, Virtual Academy, or our On-Location Academy of Excellence, we ensure that your child will be challenged to reach their full academic potential. We believe every child can learn, and refuse to lower expectations and limit their development.

The learning experience is geared toward the individual student’s success through personalized learning plans and academic support, as well as parent consultation and training.
