It’s so important that your child is thriving in their learning environment. Not many children will get to be top of their class in math or reading, but every child deserves to know the joy of learning and building their skills. The resources on this page will help you understand how your child learns best, how you can help keep your child engaged and motivated, and how you can support your child in many other ways too.
The early years are about laying a solid foundation for success in subsequent school years. Good grades are not as important as learning to show initiative, resilience, perseverance and Christlike character.
Some of the biggest challenges of middle school aren’t academic. For example, kids need to learn personal organization skills and study skills, even how to manage a locker. Most importantly, kids need to be secure in their own identity – having a sense of worth and purpose – before they can whole-heartedly apply themselves to academics, music, sports or other arenas.
