I know you already know this, but just in case you need a reminder, your child is amazing. God chose you to protect, nurture, and love them. The responsibility given can't be taken lightly. We here at TA Prep want to do all we can to make sure your child knows and believes they are amazing and provide tools for you as well.

Complete the brief survey and let us know how our school can best serve you! What topics, as a parent, do you want to hear more about? Gentle Parenting? Homework Help? Proper Sleep & Nutrition? In addition, we want your feedback regarding moving to mask optional indoors at TA Prep.

Share with us in the survey!
