Our journey began 10 years ago when a group of parents came together to take charge of their children’s education and create the safe, personalized, and inspiring atmosphere that the traditional school system didn’t provide. Education is the most important investment that can be made in our children’s futures, but it’s made in time, not just money. Our parents must participate in portfolio reviews of their children’s work and progress, PTA meetings that plan fundraisers and activities for the school, and are invited to use their connections or personal expertise to be volunteer teachers in our extra-curricular programs. Fostering an environment that encourages us to investigate, evaluate, and take responsibility for the community around us is of the utmost importance, and we expect our parents to set that example. It took a village for this project to get started, and that is what continues to strengthen us to this day.
