For Families

You are your child’s
first teacher.

For parents and caregivers across the country, the recent school closings have created a “new normal” with new challenges. One of those is finding ways to support children with the instructional packets schools sent home. To help, we’ve collected age appropriate, interactive, free resources that will aid families in assisting their student’s learning in the areas of English/language arts, math, STEM, and wellbeing.

The Junior Guide

Now is the time most high school juniors start their college admissions process in earnest. But…where to begin? Sara Harberson has created a series of comprehensive monthly worksheets especially for second semester juniors to lay the groundwork, stay on track, and get motivated for college admissions!   Each month, from now until June, complete your monthly “check up” worksheet and bonus “self work” questions. Topics range from standardized tests to college visits to essay writing, and more.    The best part about Sara’s Junior Guide is that it helps you present yourself in a deeper and more powerful way to colleges — because if you don’t know who you are, colleges won’t either.
