Introduction to Schools in Wake County

This is an introduction for any parents new to schools in the Wake County area. I will address the big picture, everything parents need to know to navigate all their school options. I'll cover everything from calendar options to magnets, charter schools, and private schools.
As an independent school consultant, I will cover all the basics and answer your questions on-base schools, calendar options, charter schools, magnet schools, and private schools, how to handle virtual tours this year, and more. This session is great for families new to Wake County and local families who are getting ready to enter the school system.

When our son was accepted to his school, she was my first phone call because we really valued her opinion and input.

The information Libby shared with our preschool families is invaluable. Things change so quickly in Wake Co. and it was wonderful to have her come in with current information regarding the choices families have for Kindergarten.
