  • Executive Director
  • Personalized Learning is a unique model of education that honors the diversity of students and their families. Parental involvement and educational options are central, as we tailor a dynamic individual program for each student. With Personalized Learning, Homeschool/Independent Study is combined with classroom instruction, online options, tutoring, field trips, community involvement, and career/college exploration.
