Each of our engaging and rigorous classes is offered LIVE – so your student can learn with direct teacher interaction. If the class time doesn’t fit your schedule, the lessons are recorded and uploaded within 48 hours, and the teacher is still available to assist with the material and your student’s needs.

“Last October I had the privilege of attending a workshop Lisa led on the subjects of transcript preparation and home schooling high school, in general. I found her presentation to be comprehensive and very well-prepared. Her confidence and reassuring presentation gave encouragement for the faint of heart and put wind in the sails of attending parents desiring to homeschool their children through high school. She was available for follow up questions, had thorough and knowledgeable answers, helped set attainable goals, and was full of excellence in content. I highly recommend any time you can spend with Lisa Nehring. You will walk away encouraged and equipped!” ~ Val S. Homeschool mom to one high school graduate and one rising sophomore
