WELCOME TO 2019

In 2019, we are asking you to reject the ordinary and reach for the extra. The curriculum is changing and so are we, so let’s embrace change and make the new year extraordinary. Our education programs remain the beating heart of all we do. Within our program, you will find many opportunities that we guarantee will engage your students with their work and assist you in adapting to an ever-evolving curriculum with creativity and ease.

As always, the entire team is here to help you make the most of your 2019.
