SPONSORED: LIFE School announces approaches and innovations to LDS-based home education

11566

LIFE School, the LDS based homeschool curriculum company that has been educating children for over 20 years, has announced exciting changes to the company that will make it available and accessible to an even larger audience.

Beginning August 1, 2013, the parent company Itineris Group, LLC, will be opening the organization to “Parent Partners.” Partners are parents who are interested in using the program but are looking for ways to finance the investment, as well as current users of the program who have grown passionate about its academic quality and ease of use and are wanting to share it with others, while earning some additional income. 

Of course this direct sales approach is not new, but it is unique to the rapidly growing homeschool market, as an increasing number of parents are deciding to take charge of educating their own children.

This announcement comes on the heels of the announcement of the opening of the J. Reuben Clark Academy, also an Itineris Group company. This unique K through 12 school utilizes the LIFE School curriculum, yet provides teacher support to students and parents. The extremely innovative high school program, delivered through Instructure Canvas, allows students and parents to have a great deal of control in determining the shape of the high school experience. The annual International Youth Conference rounds out a year of academic and spiritual growth. This year’s destination is Italy.

Sixty-minute information meetings will be held throughout Utah later this month. Jack Monnett, principal of the academy, will speak on “LDS-Based Academics: Past, Present, and Future,” and will address the current political trends and their effect on education. Company president, Patti Landes Adams, will introduce the LIFE curriculum and the J. Reuben Clark Academy and will answer questions about the Parent Partners program. She will also address concerns about the new Common Core curriculum being implemented in public, charter, and online schools across the nation, and what it could mean for your children and grandchildren.
