The Latest

Being part of Explorers Academy’s Policy Council and parent committee gave me the confidence to be part of my child’s PTA. It taught me that I had a say and I have a voice!

The teachers here truly care about every child and it has been nothing but a great experience for my two kiddos. Much love sent to every teacher and staff member. The Cooking class is amazing and was a lot of fun for me and my kids!

- Michelle

My son attended last year and my only regret is that I didn't enroll him sooner...his teacher was above and beyond words! My son still talks about his teacher and looks up to him and probably always will. I can't wait to enroll my other children as soon as they are old enough.

- Amber

I love Explorers Academy and I think my child loves it even more than I do!

- Melody

My son’s teacher gave me support and helped me see that, as a mother, I am my children’s first and most important teacher. A gift I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
