K-8 Home Study
The Home Independent Study Program is an education alternative to classroom instruction for students in grades K-8. It provides a format for supporting a home-based, parent guided educational process. It is most compatible with the families that have the interest, time and commitment to instruct their child. This option provides the opportunity for an at-home teaching situation where students can receive one-on-one support, study at their own pace within requirements and be challenged to excel in their areas of special interest and abilities.
