On Tuesday, we had an amazing first day at Yellow Parachute Academy. What started last year as a unique new option for middle school students, Yellow Parachute Academy has grown to accommodate learners in grades K – 12 this year. We have 19 students enrolled and are looking forward to a really great year with each of our students. There’s room for 10 more!

We also have a beautiful space in The Chaska Mill building, located directly across the driveway from the Yellow Parachute Academy main building, for what we’re calling “Get Out of Your House and Get What You Need!” This space is available as a place where middle and high schoolers in hybrid or distance learning can go for the day to get them out of their homes and into successful learning – like a coffee shop, but you bring your own treats from local shops such as The Red Bench Bakery, Dunn Brothers, or Dunkin’ Donuts. The work space will be staffed by trained Yellow Parachute Learning Coaches Monday – Friday to help students prioritize their work, schedule projects, talk though study tips, or get help with work. 

On the Yellow Parachute Learning Partners side, we’re also continuing to grow. We’re hiring Learning coaches like crazy, so we can be ready to accommodate and help families wherever they need it, be that distance learning support, regular tutoring, test prep or with our Quantum Jump life coaching services! 

Here’s to a terrific 2020-2021 school year! As always, if your student, school, or district has a need, please contact us. Yellow Parachute looks forward to jumping in with you!
