Military Families

The Basilica School supports our military families.  Children of military parents can face unique challenges, especially those who are anticipating or experiencing the deployment of a parent, those who have experienced a recent relocation, or those who are managing a mental health diagnosis.  Should you find your child in need of support or assistance, please do not hesitate to reach out to Mrs. Wise or Mrs. Gauron.  There are a number of services available and we would be happy to connect you and your family to the appropriate providers.  Listed below are some direct links.  Please let us know how we at the Basilica School can be of assistance to you and your family.
