Family First Visit

The best of both worlds gives parents a hands-free option and allows teacher and student to create a closer relationship. This option prepares the student gently year-by-year by adding age and timing appropriate topics over the course of the 4-year collegiate process.  This option is super for families who desire a slower, more in-depth discovery of gifts and talents to marry with a calling for God. In addition, dreams and vision planning are taught and established at a younger age to assist with wise-decision making and personal ownership of the variables at play and deliverables to be met. Teacher philosophy of “child owning the process” is still at work.

Students have the best of both worlds!  Classroom engagement, individualized check-in’s and assistance, along with the most personalized approach by establishing a more engaged experience with the teacher.  Annual course planning for story enhancement is included in this choice. This option can be quite nice for any student interested in the highly selective to Ivy level of schools.  No individual charges for adhoc questions and calls.  Students and parents freely text teacher with questions.  Students also have priority in selecting premium one-on-one time slots after school.

NOTE: Boutique Life Planning is only offered for incoming Freshmen.
