New Christian Education Programs
TAC (Train a Child Center) is launching two new Christian education programs this fall for families in the Dodge County area. ASK (After School Kids) is an after school program for students in first-eighth grades. It will provide comprehensive and holistic developmental programming to help parents nurture their children’s social, educational and spiritual development. Homework help will be provided so that when children are picked up most, if not all, their assignments will be finished and their evening will be available for family time. Through a partnership with LearningRx Brain Skills, their online program will be used for brain training exercises. A discipleship program will also be included to educate students in a mainstream Christian world view they can apply to their lives.
TAC is also transforming its homeschool support program to include a full private school option for students in first through twelfth grades. Supervised by a Minnesota licensed teacher and reading specialist, this option will allow parents to be directly involved with their children’s education without the requirement of parental participation. Tuition will be adjusted to income. TAC will also provide discounts for parents who can invest a few volunteer hours each week as well as scholarships for families with financial limitations.
Johann Marsland, program administrator, has stated no family desiring a Christian education will be turned away. “God always provides where He guides, and we are happy to be part of His providing for families. We will not refuse programming to a student based only on a genuine inability to pay tuition costs,” stated Marsland.
Tuesday, August 19 from 7-8 p.m. there will be an informational open house at the Train A Child Center in Kasson located at 205 South Mantorville Avenue, next to the Eastwood Bank. Light refreshments will be provided. The Train A Child Center is in its third year of operation. For more information call 507-721-2500. 34sh
