frequently asked questions

Who can attend?

Children and teens in Kindergarten through 8th grade.


How are the students grouped?

Your child will be grouped with students in his or her grade.


What about middle school students?

We love and respect our middle school students! We want to be there for them and help them cope with all the changes middle school brings. We also want to create a safe haven for our middle schoolers to socialize, talk about their challenges, homework, projects, problems, solutions, and victories!


Will my child get help with homework?

Yes! We sign the reading logs and provide assistance with homework each day. We will not do the homework for them, but we will help them with all resources possible.


What about teacher workdays?

Teacher workdays are included in the tuition. There are no hidden charges. We are open 7:00am-6:30pm on teacher workdays. We provide field trips, arts and crafts, and planned activities on those days.
