Happy Parents, Happy Participants

"My daughter took workshops such as Nuclear Science, Mining in Society, and Electricity that she never would have taken at home. Your classes were the gold-plated standard by which all other were measured."

- Howard W., Parent

"My sons have taken these classes, and you can tell the time and effort put into them. The kids aren’t just checking boxes, they’re learning from great teachers. We've signed up for more next week"

- Catriona H., Parent

"The process to sign up, the teacher, and content was phenomenal. As a parent, I’m thankful you were able to provide the opportunity for a classroom experience and not just doing assignments on the computer."

- Gina M., Parent
