Education is one of the most important aspects of a child’s life. They spend most of their first eighteen to twenty-two years of life in some version of a classroom, whether it’s public, private, or homeschool. They will find mentors in the coaches and teachers associated with their academic experience. They will meet classmates with whom they will form lifelong friendships. 

The subjects in which they excel will likely shape their future careers. Students will lean on the lessons they learned from their various schools throughout their lives.

This will be the third school year impacted by the effects of a global pandemic. Some children have never had an academic experience that wasn’t affected by health and safety protocols.
