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.
