As a California public school, SPA Home School is required to show that students are making progress toward the standards in each core subject area (ELA, math, science, and history-social studies). However, as parent educators, you are free to meet those standards in whatever way works best for your child. SPA is proud to retain lots of flexibility for our students and their families. Families may choose from a wide range of curriculum options and instructional methods.
You may like to think of the standards as the destination; the journey is completely up to you and your child.
