Pillars of Peace Primary Partners

Parents and kids need and deserve a high quality, flexible, applicable education without interference from government mandates and social agendas. Our aim is to create such an option by focusing on helping parents meet legal homeschooling requirements in an efficient (no busy work), semi-structured, yet flexible environment where they can feel supported while their children learn essential skills for life.

Our main goal is to guide children and parents through the homeschooling process from how to register through end-of-year evaluations and everything in between. We want to provide certified teachers who want out of politically charged schools with the opportunity to use curriculums and strategies that actually work, especially for children who have “fallen through the cracks” of other schooling methods.

The goal is to create a virtual school environment that is student-focused, supports parents and teachers, and benefits society as whole by encouraging a love of learning and resourcefulness, doing right by all involved, and encouraging a community of reciprocity.

SPED Homeschool Review Crew Feedback

What was the one thing that most impressed you about this curriculum?

You get the individualization of homeschooling with the guidance of an experienced special ed teacher. You get extensive support for students, teachers and developmental exercises.

What should parents of children with learning needs be aware of when looking into this curriculum?

The suggested schedule has a lot of classes laid out like a traditional school day but you can change up the schedule by using the class recordings on your own schedule.
