  • Welcome to Summer! 

    We have been so blessed to end the school year with a lot of great memories and exciting times watching our student launch into their next steps.  We always approach this time of the year with mix emotions—we have bonded with these students and we’re excited for what waits for them!


    Summer session is coming up quick! We still have room available in a few programs.

    And of course, we’re still taking registration for the school year. While many of our schools and approval processing folks are gone, we can still take applications.
