Hear from Our Families:

“The support from my consultant is amazing! She helps me stay focused on the goal of raising intelligent, Godly children. I have really enjoyed the support through the TA/TD program. It has provided the necessary guidance for my children where I can not. My children love talking with their teachers and I love the independence it fosters for them to be responsible for their own work. We are starting the Learning Support Plus class this semester. My son is very excited about the opportunity to learn with other students across the country. MODG is helping me to provide my children with an educational experience that can not be rivaled anywhere.”
