Parents speak...
Mike D. - “My son never liked school before… now he’s up at dawn ready to go”
Sarah R. - “Linda has opened up so much and talks constantly about the things she’s learning.”
David T.“It’s really great to have our evenings back and not argue over homework needing to be done.”
Nancy K. “I feel so much better knowing my girl’s safe and not around the problems of a large school.”
 Lacey S.“The tuition is really affordable… probably less than we spend at Starbucks in a year, totally worth it.”

Guidance & Assessment Services

We will help you determine the right program for your child.  Children learn at varying rates and it's not always dependent upon their age.  We make sure our students enjoy the learning process in a safe, secure, stimulating environment.  School should be fun for both the student and the parent.

Homework is completed in school to facilitate learning and avoid conflicts at home.  School class schedules are flexible to meet family needs.

Whether average, advanced or special needs... students work at their own pace and level.  From Preschool through High School we offer core curriculum classes utilizing the STEM approach, surpassing Federal and State guidelines.   ​​ENROLL NOW

Safety in numbers... or maybe just more of a chance for something to happen?

We stay small for a reason;  Better education with one-on-one personal attention and the freedom to enjoy the school experience without anxiety.
