Finding the Right School in a New City
Relocating to a new city can be scary. The thought of moving just a few blocks within the same city can keep a person up at night, but the idea of moving to a new city in a new state can be downright daunting. Add to the mix kids and it gets even more overwhelming for parents.
With the recent boom in major corporations such as Toyota, FedEx, and Liberty Mutual relocating to North Texas, you may be one of those parents looking desperately as every school from public to private in the Plano, Dallas, Frisco, Lovejoy, McKinney and Richardson area, and we understand the stress and anxiousness you are experiencing. We are here to help!
At Yorktown Education, we understand the importance of choosing the right place for your child’s education and at Yorktown Education students are encouraged to advance academically at earlier ages through a curriculum that fosters thinking with depth and complexity. Advancement at Yorktown Education is based on performance – not age or grade levels – so children who apply themselves are able to learn better, faster and more effectively. And with our dual enrollment program an individual child can graduate from Yorktown Education with as many as 60 college credits as part of their tuition (additional college credits can be earned for an additional fee).
Private School in Plano
Yorktown is fully accredited by AdvancEd and shares many qualities of leading private schools throughout the United States. Our philosophy prepares children to not only survive, but to thrive in a global environment. We prepare students for life with a focus on academics and personal special interests. Graduates have the skills they need to choose what they want to do with their lives – and to be good at it.
Every student is an individual with their own talents, abilities and strengths. Yorktown tailors the student’s education to their needs. Those that apply themselves are able to learn better, faster and more effectively.
