• “It has been particularly helpful…in their critical thinking…they are better listeners to other people, and it’s helped them feel like there doesn’t have to be one right answer…I want that for my kids, I want the journey of discovery…I want them to realize they have control of their learning.”

  •   "There are so few opportunities to allow students to explore history in a manner that has meaning to them.  These programs not only help to develop strong academic skills, it makes learning personal and enjoyable. Students are able to deeply delve into history, to explore topics they might never have even considered, and often that fall outside of the typical curriculum.  These programs expose students to a higher standard of academic excellence.  They develop the confidence that they can succeed beyond high school."
