About Us

Our Mission is to provide expert instruction to all students, helping them grow into successful life-long learners.

Additionally, we are a resource center for parents, teachers, and administrators.  We provide short-term and long-term consultation, teacher development opportunities, and private assessment and tutoring services.

Our methods are…

  • Personalized – We develop and provide learning services for students, parents, teachers and administrators that are based on what the client knows, values, and needs.
  • Collaborative – we build relationships between teachers, parents, students, and other stakeholders that strengthen the students’ learning opportunities.
  • Comprehensive – We work with all aspects of the learner:  social, emotional, artistic, cognitive, affective, and strategic to encourage learning in academic and out-of-school contexts.
