I am an Education Assistant and I chose Venture Academy twice for my family. As a professional in the lower mainland in the education field, I have knowledge of a number of local programs. I tried a number of interventions in our community and nothing worked. My daughter was struggling in school and in many other areas of her life. My daughter has learning difficulties and it is so awesome that the teaching staff at VA are trained in helping kids that struggle in school. It is refreshing to connect with my daughters teacher and have her using strategies that I myself use in the classroom with my students. As a blended family, we had one of our older sons attend Venture Academy a number of years ago. He did very well and continues to do so but this is actually why we chose Venture Academy the second time. Venture Academy offers something that seems to be lacking in other programs, including US based programs, that I explored and that is the warm, caring, attachment / host parent model. What a wonderful program.
