Is blend+ed right for you?
  • Are you homeschooled and in need of more support with challenging high school curriculum?homeschool
  • Would you benefit from a blended schedule that provides flexibility to meet your needs?
  • Would you like access to award-winning athletics, arts, clubs, trade programs, and other extracurriculars?
  • Is it sometimes difficult for you to attend a high school that meets daily on a regular schedule?  For example, are you are involved in competitive sports or have a chronic illness that keeps you homebound?

  • Do you have the proper support at home to help you be successful?
