The iconic Notre Dame Cathedral

Buckley Education expresses deep sadness for the fire that engulfed the Notre Dame Cathedral today in Paris, France. Firefighters say all efforts are being directed towards saving the artwork stored at the back of the cathedral, which had been undergoing renovations and preventing the collapse of its northern tower. The iconic Cathedral is visited by countless art students each year as part of study abroad programs. To learn more visit:\


Thank you Black Pine Circle School!

Thank you to Black Pine Circle School and their admissions team for an in-depth tour of their school. Lisa Kraft, MS, PPS, CEP so enjoyed her visit, a place where curiosity and creativity abound!

It’s National Library Week!

In honor of National Library Week and #wednesdaywisdom we applaud and celebrate Librarians who serve more customers than your local movie theater!

According to the Institute of Museum and Library Services, around 1.3 billion people visit public libraries every year, more than the 1.24 billion movie theater admissions in 2017. These readers will probably tell you the book is better than the movie, too.

Visit your local library today, pick up a good book (a Librarian is there to help), sit outside and enjoy a good read in the sunshine!

Today, April 2nd is Autism Awareness Day.

It’s a perfect day to share our recent Professional Development as we take pride in always learning to best assist our K-12+ students.

Our private Educational Consulting practice focuses on all students. Lisa Kraft, M.S., PPS, CEP so enjoyed her event last week learning about CIP Berkeley and how it prepares young adults with Autism and LD for Success~and has since 1984.

Buckley Education works to spread the word:
“World Autism Awareness Day” was instituted in 2007 to increase world awareness of the millions of autistic children in our world, and there are reports that awareness and research have greatly increased as a result of the awareness day.
