Fall Registration Now Open

I have to admit, New Year’s is one of my favorite holidays. There’s a reason we tend to celebrate newness. Fresh starts. Blank pages. We love the hope that lies in the unexplored, the thrill of undisturbed earth. As we approach August, and all the store aisles seem full of pristine new school supplies and brightly colored “Back to School” signs, I can’t help but get excited.
The first day of school for me has held as much promise as many a first day of January’s. For children and adult students alike, we know the new year really starts in August. Make a resolution this new school year. Be tireless in your pursuit of understanding. Let the challenge of every class equip you for the challenges you will face outside the classroom. Test strategies.
Ask questions. Celebrate every step, not only because it brings you closer to the finish line, but because each step makes you stronger.
For MBU students: if you haven’t already, give us a call at 636-366-4363 to make an appointment to register for classes this new school year.
