Free Parent Seminars

Each year, Marburn Academy offers a series of free parent education seminars, which focus on current research and innovation in the area of learning differences.

The seminars are scheduled on Tuesday evenings at the school, and topics include reading, writing, spelling, math, and self-management as they relate to students who struggle in school.

The seminar series is offered at NO COST to parents in the Central Ohio community who have students who learn differently, and to professionals for a fee of $40.00 per session.
