When it comes to selecting a school – parents have a voice in the choice.

When it comes to selecting a school – parents have a voice in the choice.


Parents generally have both greater interest in their children’s schooling and more intimate knowledge of the capacities and needs than anyone else.
— “Free to Choose: A Personal Statement,” Dr. Milton Friedman, 1979/1980

Education Choice


We are different because we focus on parents and their children, not the system.  We help parents identify what education option best fits the needs of each child.  Because no two kids are the same – or learn the same way.
