Academic Support

We recognize that not every homeschool parent was designed to be a homeschool parent and can always use some academic support. Our academic instructors will support the parent's efforts at home by covering the core concepts, engaging the students in group discussions, providing suggested assignments, and being available via MySchoolWorx Messages throughout each week.

Austin Green

Austin believes teens are like electricity: If you give them proper guidance and structure, they can be very beneficial and productive to others they influence yet if not encouraged down the right path, they can create unnecessary destruction to the world around them. 

Austin has lived in Lakeland for the last 14 years and currently works as a Senior Consultant for 2 tech companies, MySchoolWorx, and Active Defender. His wife, Nicole, and children, Alea (13), Caeden (9), Sophia (9), all love the outdoors, beach-time, pool-time, springs-time, basically anything having to do with water is the great day for them.
