To provide specialized educational services to students, enabling the acquisition of skills and strategies, and to provide educational training to parents and the community to support understanding of learning differences.
Students attending our Homeschool “Learning Labs” receive specialized instruction to build academic skills and applications through evidence-based curriculum and strategies. Small group environments and purposeful interventions focus on the whole child, allowing students to experience success and gain confidence inside and outside of the classroom.
Students develop foundational academic skills in a setting where learning is optimized as teachers pinpoint strategies and interventions to support the child’s needs.
