Traditional education programs often create gaps in learning. These academic gaps can be filled through a customized curriculum. No student should be "passed through" without mastery of a subject just because the rest of the class is ready to move forward. We believe students should also be challenged to investigate future career opportunities through a vast array of electives. The foundation for relationship skills is built by hands-on learning of social understanding skills and by practicing interactions in real-life situations. Our students work together and enter competitions such as the Renaissance Festival Trebuchet completion or various chess tournaments in and around the Houston metroplex.
