Remembering Dr. Donald P. La Salle, TMSC Founder
Teaching Students Safely In-Person
Remember when being a kid was fun? It was all about learning, playing and growing. These days, it’s hard for a kid to ‘just be a kid’ — especially with all that’s changed because of COVID.
With new rules and safety guidelines that have, for the foreseeable future, changed how students and teachers connect — many schools have struggled to keep students engaged and inspired. Fortunately, Talcott Mountain Academy continues to lead the way with fun, hands-on, inspired learning.
Parents are truly grateful that we’ve found a way to deliver the Talcott learning experience that they seek… and that their children crave.
Find out more about the robust protocols we have in place to ensure the safety of our students and staff — and how Talcott is leading the way in education.
The Talcott experience
A school within a science center, Talcott Mountain Academy inspires young minds to ask questions, seek answers and explore new ideas. Small classes, peer-to-peer mentorship opportunities and numerous school-wide activities contribute to a close-knit community where students find acceptance and feel they belong. So much so, they often refer to Talcott as their ‘home away from home.”
Students quickly learn from their peers that their unique interests and talents are what make them special — they don’t need to pretend to be someone they’re not. This revelation is often the beginning of a transformational journey of self-discovery.
