Dear Prospective Parent,
Our journey is probably very similar to yours and many of the parents at Mentoring. We wanted a school where our son could thrive, as well as learn. We knew he was very bright and enquiring, but he couldn’t quite “get” school. He floundered-- testing well, but performing poorly. We knew we needed to find a different school for him. Thus, we were excited when we discovered Mentoring.
Mentoring Academy is a unique high school encouraging the academic success of each student, by addressing individual interests, needs, skills and learning styles. As I overheard one parent state, Mentoring doesn’t fit the student to the school, rather fits the school to the student.
I know that this is a difficult journey searching for the right school for your child. I have experienced this. What I encourage you to do is to seek out the instructors, staff, parents and students and ask them about their journeys, why they choose Mentoring and how they feel now that they are here. And please contact us if you have questions later. We welcome the opportunity to speak with you.
We are happy that our son is enrolled and we see an incredible improvement in him and his engagement in school. Mentoring was the right fit for us and maybe it’ll be the right fit for you.
Again, welcome and I look forward to meeting you.

We recommend Mentoring Academy to parents who want more for their teenagers than an assembly line-style of education. Mentoring tailors programs to address the needs and interests of individual students, inspiring in them a passion for learning and the courage to be different. Our son loves going to school everyday, and he has a point of view on everything. We can't imagine a better school for our son than Mentoring. It's truly special. The world would be a better place if there were more schools like it .

At my old school you could do something great, at Mentoring you can do something extraordinary.
