just enough structure

The Umbrella School provides just enough structure and accountability to stay on track, remain motivated, and productive. Since what constitutes as what "just enough" means varies from family to family, let's talk about what your family needs to be successful.  

FULFILL Legal requirements

Whether you want or need a little professional oversight, we got you covered. You will never be required to relinquish your autonomy as a homeschooler, but will still benefit from the professional cover of a private school. Yearly assessment, meetings with a certified teacher, and tutoring services are availble as needed or desired. Let's talk.
