*Microschool is a supplemental program designed to reinforce your child's education. Kids have varying levels of self-discipline and grit that may affect their ability to learn remotely. Our program introduces external accountability to keep them on track in their normal schooling.

Young Ivy makes your life easier.

It doesn't matter if you're working or sitting in traffic—we'll take care of your kids.

Rest assured knowing they're getting the best education and supervision from our experienced teachers and TAs. 


A note from Tasha & Jim,

the wife-and-husband duo behind Young Ivy.

Raising three children (now adults!) ourselves taught us the detrimental effects of procrastination and the importance of getting things done. We know that some kids embrace school while others don't, and that this has a compounding effect on academic performance. 

No matter their aptitude, we want to help your child do the best they can, by not only instilling a good work ethic, but by having fun along the way as well. 

We're happy you're interested, and can't wait to hear how your child loves it here.
