home education program (parent-led)

The Home Education program is defined as having the ability to educate your child within the home with a parent-directed program.  Students follow an educational program plan designed by their parents and approved by our experienced facilitators. Learning is focused around student interests as well as dynamic family values, beliefs, lifestyles and faith, resulting in productive and inspired individuals within our global community. Support is available to parents and students through our facilitators who are also parents and teachers!
