Lots of homeschool families are looking for more support with sourcing curriculum and building community but don't want to fully stop being their child's teacher and guide. Learners in grades 4-8 whose parents are experienced homeschoolers or educators who are prepared to serve as their child's mentor coach—regularly meeting with them and giving them feedback on their academic work—tend to thrive in the Parent-coach program. Learners who are part of this program still experience every other aspect of Prisma (project-based curriculum, daily live workshops, extracurricular opportunities, accredited transcripts, etc.). The only difference is that you are your child's mentor coach.
Learners enrolled in this program still participate in all our workshops, standups, Expo days, clubs and learner events. Like all our learners, they are part of a close-knit cohort of other learners that they meet with daily. They also get full access to our accredited curriculum, assessments, and receive a Prisma transcript. Also included in this program is a support coach who meets regularly with our parent-coaches and looks over the feedback they are providing to ensure that their child is on track and is meeting or exceeding expectations.
