We specialize in treating students as individuals and have administered self-paced, proficiency-based programs for over 25 years. Our personalized programs offer valuable opportunities for all students and have consistently proven particularly successful for a variety of learning styles.

By utilizing small classrooms and a maximum 8:1 student:teacher ratio, Desiderata retains the ability to adapt programs on-the-fly to best meet the needs of your child.

*Home School Collaboration: Home school students co-enroll to take advantage of the benefits of taking some classes with Desiderata and some classes at home.
