"Home of the Trailblazers"

"Two roads diverged in a wood, and  I-

I took the one less traveled by,

And that has made all the difference."

Robert Frost


Since 1990, our credentialed teachers have teamed with hundreds of dedicated parents who have chosen to educate their TK through eighth-grade children at home. PRISC Homeschool Program is designed to create an experience for your child to learn life skills, develop social-emotional skills, gain independence, and acquire an academic foundation that will help them become confident lifelong learners. We offer an excellent academic program with the added benefit of providing opportunities for students to engage socially and become part of a school community.


We provide:


  • A dedicated credentialed Mentor Teacher
  • District adopted curriculum
  • Thematic experiential learning for Transitional Kindergarten
  • Student textbooks and teachers' editions
  • Credentialed Mentor Teacher prepared lesson plan and support
  • Weekly/bi-weekly teacher/parent/student meetings
  • Parent training in all curricular areas
  • Online support for all curriculum
  • Consumable materials
  • Accelerated Reader
  • District and State Assessments
  • Enrichment & remedial resources
    Enrichment includes dedicated time for weekly social-emotional and Kindergarten Readiness classes,
    outdoor classes, field trips, crafts, recreation, science, arts, thematic hands-on learning "play", and community partnerships.

In a warm, supportive environment, students and parents work in partnership with their Homeschool Mentor Teacher, to ensure the best possible learning experience for each and every child.  

Every family has its own story, and its own reasons for choosing the road less traveled.

We are here to meet you where you are and support you in making your educational journey a success.
