We know making a school decision is important—these Bernard Zell parents are here to help!

When parents and caregivers connect and learn from others in small, confidential groups they feel less alone, knowing that there are other parents who have been through the process of choosing the best education for their children.
With our Ask Me program, participants can share comfortably and discover new strategies and different perspectives. We hope participants will find a network of parents to talk with during and beyond the admissions process.
