Triple Stone Education Support

Triple Stone was developed in 2014 after a group of dedicated education professionals were discussing the needs for:

  • High quality, low/no-cost after-school learning support for those in need who truly care
  • Safe comfortable spaces for kids to finish homework in a supportive environment
  • Opportunities to learn the cool stuff they want to learn

Lindsay Lanspeary grabbed these ideas, added some much loved references from the movie The Goonies®*, and ran with it. The process of opening Triple Stone was not easy or quick, but it has been fueled by a passion to create opportunities for kids to be great.
