Flexibility, Consistency, and Stability Benefits for Military Families.

TLCI Principal Director and Founder, Manfred Smith was a military child and his father a WW2 veteran. Executive Director, Nancy De Luca Stempel is a US Army veteran, her father a Korean Conflict veteran and Purple Heart recipient, and her son in law is an active duty Marine.

Together they offer their heartfelt appreciation to all veterans and active duty US Military members and their families for their contribution and distinct service to our country. In appreciation TLCI provides a 5% discount to the K-12 enrollment tuition.

According to the Department of Defense, the average child in a military family will move six to nine time during a school career. That’s an average of three times more frequently that a nonmilitary family. This can create a series of difficult transitions for the military child.

Because of these ongoing challenges homeschooling is trending upwards with military families.  Among the 1.2 million children of active-duty military parents, more than 6 percent are home-schooled, according to estimates by the Military Child Education Coalition. This means that approximately 35,100 – 39,000 school-aged kids with parents in the military are currently being homeschooled.

The Learning Community International private school/homeschool fusion program provides a comprehensive educational program with personalized support and guidance for parents not found in homeschooling alone or any other distance learning program.

The Dandelion – The Official Flower of the Military Child- unknown

The official flower of the military child is the dandelion. Why? The plant puts down roots almost anywhere, and it’s almost impossible to destroy. It’s an unpretentious plant, yet good looking. It’s a survivor in a broad range of climates. Military children bloom everywhere the winds carry them. They are hardy and upright. Their roots are strong, cultivated deeply in the culture of the military, planted swiftly and surely. They’re ready to fly in the breezes that take them to new adventures, new lands, and new friends.
