"Student success alone is a means to an end...student success with Christ is just the beginning of what God can do to prosper your child in school, college, their career and life." - Deandra Smith
LOST, FRUSTRATED, AND CONCERNED IF YOU'RE DOING THE RIGHT THINGS TO HELP YOUR CHILD SUCCEED IN SCHOOL?
HI, DEANDRA SMITH
THE STUDENT SUCCESS EXPERT FOR BELIEVERS!
During my first year of college, I changed my major from forensic science to early childhood education because I quickly realized that it wasn't what God had planned for me. Once sophomore year rolled around, I decided that I wanted to make a career out of one thing (and really, it wasn't me, it was God's doing)...helping students succeed in school.
Two years later, I was a first-year graduate student studying higher education and learning student success principles, which was great because I'd always wanted to know how I could make an impact in the lives of Christian students, but I didn't always know how to do it.
After providing college counseling to a couple of my family members about how to succeed in college while keeping God first, I realized that God had shown me my purpose - to educate, equip and exhort believers about how to obtain student success for His glory!
Almost 8 years later, Believers Education Collaborative, LLC (also referred to as BEC, LLC, or BelieversEd) was established. Since that time, I have made a commitment to help believers pursue student success for God's glory - and to make it a fun, engaging process!
And now, I'm partnering with Christian parents of middle and high school children around the country to do just that!

Outside of the Bible, there is no specific guide for parenting, leading some parents attempt to do things on their own, only to realize that the task was much more complex than they anticipated and that it would have been better to hire a professional. And for other parents, seeking outside support may be money well spent.
For those parents who want guidance and support to help their child succeed in school while preparing for college and their career, we are available and ready to assist you!
