Our programs are designed to create a community for socialization while also supporting families with mindful secular academic instruction. We have been serving homeschoolers for 10 years and our staff value your child’s education. We offer child-centered and child-led programs with documentation of completed work to help parents reduce efforts for homeschooling.
