Start educating at age four.

Skip grade levels.

Dual enroll and take AP classes.

Learn all the states, capitals, countries, topography of the entire world in this ONE homeschooling year.

Participate in three different sports and extra curricular activities.

It will challenge your worldview.

May even cause us to rethink that which drives us in our homeschooling.
