BRANSON ACADEMY PSP Private School Satellite Program

What is a “Homeschool Satellite Program?”

Back in the day, it was called an “Umbrella Program” or Independent Study Program.  But because they didn’t actually provide any books, or curriculum, it was sometimes confused with the public school independent study programs. State homeschool groups started calling the service we offer a PSP (Private School Satellite Program)… which sounds a little like an Internet provider, right?  So, now we just call ourselves a Homeschool Satellite Program.

When you enroll in a PSP (or HSP) you are “under the umbrella” of the private school.

Why is that important? Well, it protects you from harassment — from anti-homeschool neighbors, or family, or school district employees, or anyone who is aghast that you are “What? Teaching your OWN kids!”

AND, you still get to home school your way. Cool, huh?  AND, we take care of all your records — attendance, grades, transcripts, diplomas.  Important stuff that schools usually handle. Visit Branson Academy www.bransonacademy.com today and see all they have to offer.
