Welcome to the Junior Homeschool Program page! Our Junior HS programs are intended for eager participants in grades K-5, but grade level varies according to program. This is to assure that the program is appropriate for the age/grade level. We do our best to offer programs for all school-age students, but offerings depend on the session.
