YPA is a small community of families with students in grades 5-8, founded in 2019. We desire close-knit support for our learners through their middle school years. We connect to discuss parenting, study and executive functioning skills and habits, and how we can best foster our children's resiliency in the 21st century.
YPA exists to give parents the option of sending their kids to a center where learning is supported through 1:1 coaching and mentorship.
YPA exists to grow students' confidence, purpose, and belief in serving others, because this belief fuels hope to take risks to achieve a purpose beyond one's self.
Passion + Purpose = Perseverance.
We guide students to become learning experts and connect learning experiences to real life.
YPA learners explore their strengths, identity, and ability to cope with learning challenges. Learners gain understanding of specifically how to learn - meaning tools, habits, and strategies to apply across multiple contexts. By participating in service learning opportunities, students' learning comes to life.
YPA learners become role models for activating voice and choice in learning; they will enrich the student learning culture and environment in the high schools of their choices.
