Our educational programs are designed to meet students at their current academic abilities and help them continually succeed. In addition to teaching the basic skills of reading, writing, and mathematics, we work to instill the values of good citizenship, honesty, respect, and hard work. Students are taught to be participating citizens who have the ability to influence their environment.
