You know what's hard?

Teaching your child HOW to think. But do you know what's even HARDER? Sending your child out into a world full of false ideas with no training and experiencing the consequences.

Feeling overwhelmed? We can help!

  • Adults and the media frequently present LIES to look like FACTS. Can your child spot the difference?
  • If something sounds like it might be true, can your child put it through the "fallacy test"?
  • Can your child explain the difference between their BRAIN and their MIND?
  • Does your child understand how something as simple as logic can help keep them safe?
  • Does your child know what REALLY makes someone the smartest person in the room?

They'll learn the answers to all of these questions and MUCH MORE in our BRAND NEW 11-WEEK PREMIUM CERTIFICATE COURSE for 6-8th graders! Spots are LIMITED, so be sure to PRE-REGISTER your child and save them a seat in class TODAY!

Frequently Asked Questions

FAQs

When to do the LIVE ZOOM sessions take place for this PREMIUM course?

Thursdays @ 7:30 PM Eastern (4:30 PM Pacific). Each meeting lasts 45 minutes. Click HERE to download the course schedule.

Can I put more than one student under one account?

This premium course is designed so that students get individualized instruction and feedback from the teacher. Because each student will have their own assignments and quizzes, each student must be enrolled under a different email address.

How many students are in the course?

Space is limited. Keeping the class small will provide a personal opportunity to interact with the instructor.

What type of payments do you accept?

Currently we accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express and check cards (as long as they are connected with one of the major credit card companies listed above) as well as PayPal.

Is my personal information safe and secure?

In order to ensure security, all payments are processed through Authorize.net or PayPal. These are highly secure and use industry-leading technology (such as SSL) to keep your information safe.

Can one person enroll in the course and multiple people attend the Zoom session with the student?

Unfortunately, due to copyright, privacy and security issues the answer to this question is NO. We understand the desire to share these awesome sessions in this manner, but each course is a “closed” course. This means that each student enrolled in a course with LIVE recorded sessions, through their enrollment, has given permission for recording of the Zoom sessions for use by the student’s in their enrolled class ONLY and verified that they are not a minor. To remain GDPR compliant and protect privacy and security, we authenticate each student joining our Zoom meetings. This privacy is also sought to create a place where our students get to know the others in their group and feel comfortable in sharing personal thoughts and questions.
