This program offers a wonderful alternative to the traditional classroom for parents who feel they can best meet the individual needs of their student in a home-centered program. Home schooling is an exciting opportunity which allows parents the ability to expand their child's learning above and beyond what the classroom has to offer and enables children to learn at their own pace and in a manner which best suites their learning style. The district provides a highly qualified credentialed teacher to meet with parents and students regularly, offer instructional support, and provide learning materials similar to what is offered in the traditional classroom at no cost to the parent. Alternative curriculum can be integrated as necessary. The responsibility of the parent is to provide the daily instruction. District and State assessments are administered to monitor growth and pinpoint areas of need.

Our Alternative School program offers many enrichment opportunities, including:
  • Ongoing workshops in ceramics, science, sewing/quilting, art, writing, physical education, and more!
  • Individualized instructional support 
  • Holiday parties
  • Science Fair
  • Field trips
