Welcome to our school-based program called: It's All About Being in Middle School: Developing Nurturing Values and Skills in Young Adolescents. The Middle School Program is a 100 lesson, competency based program. 

Life in Middle School 
Without question, the developmental period between the ages of 12 to 15 are some of the roughest years of our life. It's a period of developmental upheaval where every facet of life is "under new management;" where hormones, acne, growth spurts, and infatuation magically appear and disappear, all in a blink of an eye. Friends become foes then friends again during a class period. Drama runs as wild as a high speed roller-coaster that twists and turns up-side down at high speeds with kids screaming and yelling. That is middle school. 

Dr. Schlieve and Dr. Bavolek have many years successfully teaching and working with troubled young teens. They have taken all their years of experience and have created a program that will help middle school pioneers make sense of their ever changing world. The lessons contained in this program are designed to offer an understanding of the expected and unexpected daily events going on in a young teen's life as well as empowering them with skills to cope and manage the situation. 

Unique features of the All About Being in Middle School program is comprised of 100 competency based lessons that are divided into two sections:

  • Section 1: Building Nurturing Values and Skills;
  • Section 2: The Challenges of Being a Young Teen.
