When selecting a school – parents have a choice


SCROLL DOWN

When selecting a school – parents have a 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

About us

Parents need access to information on current offerings, and how to evaluate and compare education options to determine the best choice for their child.

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.

benefits

We make thousands of choices every day — which shoes to wear, what to eat, what time to go to bed. And yet, your home address gives you one choice for your child’s education.  There is more.
