During the winter months the community of Wellington, Florida explodes with equestrian activities. World class polo, dressage, and hunter/jumper events add thousands of people to this growing community.
» We aim to be a home away from home, where students can connect with others and build lasting relationships. Education Place is known as the premier “school away from school” for the Wellington equestrian community.
» Having years of experience with equestrian families, we are uniquely designed to meet the emotional and time challenges that these students face.
» Education Place is a personalized school experience where seasonal students maintain their academic progress by having professional support and direction as well as a quiet, regularly scheduled work place.
» Our facility provides a research library and Internet access as
well as materials for the completion of projects or experiments.
» Our highly trained staff provides personal attention to each student’s individual curriculum plan, covering not only the assigned lessons, but also learning skills such as time management, concentration, organization, and intellectual integrity.
Part of our service is the establishment of a working relationship with your school. We have a successful and ongoing relationship with schools such as:
» The Foxcroft School
» Aiken Preparatory which are located within other equestrian communities throughout the United States.
From our very first inquiry conversation with your family, we will use our specialized educational consulting skills to make the transitions to and from your child’s home school as seamless as possible.
» Several weeks prior to your arrival, our staff will contact an administrator at your school to develop a curriculum format for your child’s program. Working with the administrator and the classroom teachers, a schedule will be created for your child’s tenure at Education Place.
» As lessons, assignments, quizzes, and tests are completed, they will be forwarded directly to the school. We will follow the program laid out by your teachers, and stay in close contact with them during your child’s stay.
» Our students return year after year because they truly feel supported to do their best in all aspects of their training. Students and their families are able to develop a sense of “seasonal belonging.”
» We have taken many of our students all the way from elementary school through the college admissions process, and beyond, with great success.
» We have worked with scores of schools around the country and have received kudos from every teacher at every grade level and in every subject area regarding the results we achieve with their students.
» We are happy to provide you with the name of a family that lives in or near your community, when possible, who can answer any additional questions that you may have.
