Journey School would love to be able to give scholarships to children whose parents feel they would benefit from the Journey School experience and have also completed the scholarship application. Our school tuition is $20,000 for the year. We would LOVE to encourage you to read about our applicants and their families and see if supporting a child in this way is something the Lord lays on your heart! Please contact us if you have ANY questions!
Meet Madison- the most vibrant, beautiful, happy go lucky little girl you will ever meet! She is 6 years old and entering the first grade. She lives with me- her mom, twin brother-Michael, and great grandmother. When Madison was 4 month’s old, her daddy passed away, leaving me to take care of her and her infant brother all by myself. Madison is diagnosed with cerebral palsy, global developmental delays, and a very rare genetic disorder called Trip 12. Because of those diagnosis, Madison has 9 medical providers she sees. She loves being girly in fancy clothes, “princess” hair with curls, and painting her nails and toes. Unicorns, rainbows, and glitter are her favorite things. She loves hard and she loves deep and she puts her all in to everything she does. She will bring something to Journey School that you won’t find in anyone else!
In February 2017, I fell in love with Bryson, a deaf six-year-old living in Guangxi, China, and knew I would do everything in my power to bring him home. Ten months later, on December 18, 2017, I became his Momma. Soon after arriving home, I found out Bryson was NOT deaf, instead severely autistic and non-verbal. As a Deaf Education teacher, I was prepared to raise a deaf son; raising an autistic child was not something I was prepared to do. The last nineteen months have been a learning curve of finding resources, researching, … patience. One thing never changed: Bryson is my son, and I will do everything in my power to bring him home ... to give him every opportunity available and to LOVE him and give him the best life possible.
Chanel is a beautiful 9 year old girl who loves to play outside and be around family. She loves to run and jump on her swing and take off as far as she can go. Her peace is in the water swimming and twirling through the pool. She is a little girl full of life and love but is trapped in the world of Autism. She was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder and Speech Delay at the early age of three and within that diagnosis so many obstacles and challenges came with it. Chanel needs extra help to do independent tasks we all do without thinking. Opening bottles, buttoning pants, and brushing her own teeth are some few challenges she faces. She struggles academically and has gone to many public schools just to try to find the right fit for her and her needs and it ultimately put her back with so much confusion and change. We finally found a place equipped for her to get that extra help she needs not only academically but also in basic life skills that can help her grow into an independent young lady. The teachers at Journey school have so much love and compassion for teaching the children academics, life skills, but also about Jesus. With the help of Journey school Chanel has a better chance at being independent, meeting academic goals, and having friends.
Trevon had a rough start in life, being born a micro preemie at 26 weeks who subsequently developed cerebral palsy. With the help of many fabulous health care providers, therapists, teachers, and aides, he is now a thriving young man of 17 years old. Public school was not the best fit for him, for he became more of a number than being mentored and grown to the best of his abilities. It is our hope that attending Journey School will help stimulate his mind, foster his independence, nurture his strengths, and develop new skills that can be used in the future. When he is not in school, he enjoys hanging out with his supportive older sister, watching football, going to Astros games, attending concerts, and playing video games.
