ABOUT US

The Lyceum Foundation

The non-profit "Lyceum Foundation" supports busy, working parents by creating individualized academic management plans for kindergarten through 8th grade after school members in an efficient, balanced, and wholesome way.  The Lyceum Foundation coordinates transportation to and from local schools and assists children in their practice, homework, test preparation, and in their scheduled labs for classes such as grade-level math and ELA classes offered through the Foundation and Lyceum Village vendors.  We support busy and working parents as they establish in their children life-long habits of being physically active, making healthy nutrition choices, and encouraging the development of their intellectual vitality.  Through Lyceum Foundation's continued support throughout the years, we believe that the quality of the busy/working parent's "family time" will improve and increase in frequency and that the success in their children's academics and futures as a whole will follow.
