Why do some parents spend $50,000 a year to send their child to an elite prep school? What do prep schools do that public schools don’t? Simple. Elite prep schools educate for greatness. Having attended an elite boarding school in Virginia, Britton knows what it takes to give your children an elite education. And you don’t need $50,000 to send your children off to prep school; you can provide an elite education from your kitchen table. Education is an art, and like any art, there are certain principles, strategies and techniques that set the masters apart from the amateurs. During his “Educating for Greatness” workshop, Mr. LaTulippe will reveal the secrets, 7 practical tips that will dramatically accelerate your children’s learning!
Sometimes our children have a false sense of security on the internet. Because they are in the comforts of home using an impersonal electronic device, they don’t see the potential consequences of a simple mouse click. Although viewed as potentially “uncool,” parents and teachers have a duty to give clear and accurate warnings to kids about the risks and dangers of being active online. This presentation will arm you with resources to have that conversation and, maybe, even look cool while doing it.
One of the greatest blessing we have given our children is the gift of travel. We have incorporated it into every part of our lives including their homeschooling. We have found no better way to understand the wonderful diversity of the world than to travel with hands on experiences. This has opened up our children’s minds like nothing else could. It has given them the opportunity to share their views and feelings about what they see and learn. It has in many ways given them a deeper appreciation of what they have been blessed with.
One of the reasons families don’t experience this kind of world travel is often because the cost far exceeds the budget. We have discovered ways that blow away the budget excuse. We have traveled 3 weeks in Europe with 4 children in tow for around $2500.00 total (that is for all 6 of us). That includes air, accommodations, transportation, food, fun and more. Come learn our secrets in this fascinating journey and about the incredible experiences that have come from our adventures.
