I have the utmost respect for parents who homeschool their children. I wish I had made that commitment many years ago when my children first became school aged. Unfortunately, I didn’t and I sent my kids to public school. Elementary school went well and I really liked their kindergarten and first grade teachers. I felt [...]
I think that most people feel that our schools are in decline. School society seems corrupt in so many ways. Everyday we seem to hear in the news about all sorts of abuse going on in school.

These news sources have historically propagated the public school system because they have a [...]
What does accreditation mean?
Accreditation means that a cyber charter school has been approved by a state recognized, independent agency, which has determined that the cyber charter school meets accepted standards that have been developed for all schools seeking accreditation.
