"It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men." - Frederick Douglas
Aspire believes education begins with a strong moral foundation, the freedom to choose how to support those values, and continued support of those by your family. Students thrive when they're challenged, given responsibility, and encouraged to assume leadership roles.
Leslee understands the absolute joy of being a parent; and the fear, frustration and confusion that can accompany choosing the right educational path for your child. Leslee and the Aspire team are passionate about coming alongside you as parents to help make sense of the chaos and assist you in making the best decision for your family.
Whether it's developing a homeschool plan, determining what type of schooling is best, dealing with special circumstances, sports or just choosing the right curriculum, Aspire designs programs unique to your child's gifts and passions, equipping them to take ownership of their future.
