Parents speak up...
Mike D. - “My son had 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 doing.”
David T.“It’s really great to have our evenings back and not arguing over homework needing to be done.”
Nancy K. “I feel so much better knowing my child’s safe and not around the problems of a large school.”

Ready for School

Whether average, advanced or special needs... students work at their own pace and level. In Preschool through High School we emphasize the "STEM" approach to core curriculum classes surpassing Federal and State guidelines.  


Is there safety in numbers... or more of a chance for something to happen?

We're small for a reason:  

A better education with one-on-one personal attention and the freedom to enjoy the school experience without anxiety.

Guidance & Assessment Services

We'll 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.  Homework is completed in school to facilitate learning and avoid conflicts at home.  Class schedules are flexible to meet the family's needs.

We now have a "Lending Library Drive-Up" sponsored by the Girl Scouts of America.  Free use for all.
