School Notes

  • Call today to set up a therapeuticconsultation and find out how Harbor can help your child to fulfill the destiny the were created to have. Don't let your child just get by with an education that is "fine" or worse. Help prepare your child to learn how he/she learns, what their strengths are and how they can become more than status quo. The foundation they have before college and career will determine how the are prepared for life. Great leaders are different, and they very seldom fit in the mold of a system built for the masses. For them to mold to this system, many must give up who they are meant to be. Is that really what we want for our children
