I can not recommend enough the wonderful program offered at Ability School. I am not aware of any other program where a child walks away with as much confidence in their ability to learn and study any subject. My daughter started at 3 1/2 and was reading by 4. She loves school! I would recommend Ability School to any parent who want a more personalized education for their child.

The only way private schools can build their financial security is through gifts. Major gifts offer proof of how deeply many donors feel about their private schools. Their munificence is a wonderful example to others.
