IMPORTANT: Placement in this coaching program does not guarantee your student a spot in our school year coaching schedule. Students must be on our Fall waiting list to secure a slot for the school year. This program and summer coaching are separate programs entirely. In addition, sessions during the summer do not count as credit towards our initial school year coaching package, which is paid for separately.
