Look what our parents are saying...

"I really don’t know how to truly thank you.  I don’t know if I have effectively conveyed how wonderful your program is.  My experience with your team has been, by far, better than any I have experienced with any school and/or program.  Not only from a programming standpoint but also the staff and how much they care. I have had access to many different administrations from the elementary to the middle to the high school level and your staff, team and educational programs are by far the best. 


It has been an absolute pleasure. My son’s teacher is amazing.  I have never had such an experience as to have an educator be able to be impartial, firm, caring, communicative and be able to command the respect of her students.


I also believe that the basketball program that you have and the coach was fantastic with my son.  He was able to get through to him so that he could learn how to not let his frustration get in the way of his goals and successes.


The staff at the Learning Center was the first experience that I had where the children were spoken to, given parameters, were not “babied or coddled” but nor were they barked at either. My son’s self esteem has blossomed in his time at The Learning Center and CAT Brandywine.  I noticed it while attending one of the basket ball games.  It wasn’t just my son that responded to this approach.  Your students were very polite and respectful to me.  It made me feel welcome and also made me feel like my son was a true part of your community.     


I have never seen this dynamic at any other alternative school that my son has attended or we have considered.   You have an incredible program that you all should be wonderfully proud of." - A Montgomery County School District Parent

"I wanted to take this opportunity to tell you how grateful I am.  I have seen a transformation in my son who is actually happy now.  For the past two years, he has been struggling in school both with academics and with behavior.  You have given my son confidence and he now believes he can accomplish what he sets his mind to.

Thank you and everyone that has worked so hard to help my son, he will miss all of you." - A Berks County School District Parent
"My son really enjoys school now that he's in the STEPS program and I am very appreciative of that! No more fighting and arguing to get him to go to school.

Thanks again for all that you do!"  - A Chester County School District Parent

"I wanted to contact you to let you know that I am so pleased with the progress my daughter is making at your school.  It is huge testimonial to the teaching staff and the organization as a whole.  She loves the instructional assistant in her class and if you can pass on my sincere thanks to him for really helping her out and giving her support, I would certainly appreciate it.

Her report card was wonderful, compared to what it has been in the past and I am so grateful that she had the opportunity to go into the STEPS program and can possibly graduate as scheduled.

Thanks again for all of your help and support." - A Chester County School District Parent 

"I just wanted to thank you guys so much for taking care of my son while he was there.  I was totally petrified when I heard I had to send him there, but you guys have made the whole situation great.  Thank you so much for your concern, support, communication and most of all your sense of humor.  You all have been great.  I will keep you posted on my son's progress......."  - A Chester County School District Parent

"You all do a wonderful job and I very much appreciate all the support that you provide my daughter.  Trust me when I say we have attended many schools and I have never, ever met a group of teachers who strive so hard to make a difference in the lives of these kids, as you all do.  The support and encouragement you all provide is amazing.   Thanks so much for all your hard work."   - A Chester County School District Parent
