But wait … how do I know if my child is staying on track while being homeschooled?

Our science has proven to consistently advance our learners an average of 1-2 grade levels in just a 50-hour enrollment. So, a more continuous homeschool program would likely further accelerate this growth.

In addition, we use a progress-monitoring system that allows us to compare your learner’s current performance and projected growth to same-age peers using AIMSweb®. This assessment also lets us see how much growth, or rate of improvement, your child is predicted to make in a traditional classroom setting.
