Life changing! My son went from feeling like a failure to graduating as Valedictorian! We should have moved him before 7th grade! Don't wait, move your child now for the best education available for kids with dyslexia!

I love my job! To see children learn to read for the first time, and high school students graduate with over 20 college hours is amazing. We have a family atmosphere, with talented teachers, that are dedicated to our students success. We have a high retention rate with students and teachers. God has truly blessed the mission of this school.
