Which model is best for my student?

We value human connection especially when schooling at home. The Teacher-Led Live Instruction Model provides a nurturing and consistent environment to form meaningful relationships with teachers and peers.

We also realize each family is different. Some may need more flexibility. Whether your family travels regularly or your child spends their day pursuing a personal passion, the Flexible Week Model is a wonderful alternative.
