Services

Our services are a holistic solution to the educational gap.

If you have a course idea please let the staff know.

What we offer

Parents are children’s first and most important teacher. Parents determine a child’s academic blueprint on how a child will succeed. If there is no plan a child will be at a disadvantage. Parent University helps families come up with that plan.

Liaison
Services

Families who have children attending schools can have a Family Liaison assigned to the family to assist in support the child while in school. We partner with Lutheran Family Services to provide liaison services to our families. We believe it is important to have a liaison or bridge from school to the home and home to school. If your child is not in school yet, but you need help getting connected to resources, liaisons can help with that too.
