Learn at home, online,
and with Independent Home Study support resources!

MY Academy’s independent home study program gives students the flexibility to choose how they use their time – for school, for family, and for fun.

Like a traditional homeschool program, the Independent Home Study program at MY Academy is best for students who want a quality education but don’t want to be constrained by school schedules. Many families choose the MYA Independent Home Study program because a credentialed teacher directs the instruction and parents assume responsibility for student engagement.

Parent-Monitored Education and Customized Coursework

Like a traditional homeschool setting, the MYA Independent Home Study program provides students and familiies flexibility in choosing how to use their time for school, for family and for fun. Parent involvement supports the teacher as the student engages in school work.

Personalized Teacher Support

MYA Teachers meet with Independent home study families individually to facilitate learning. Students have direct access to communicate with their teacher whenever they have questions or need additional guidance—via phone, email, text, and virtual collaboration tools at mutually agreed upon times.

Flexible Learning Environment

Students can work at their own pace and create their own schedule. That’s because MYA students utilize a curriculum that can be accessed at anytime from anywhere. Whether a student is advanced, at grade level or off-pace, the unique needs of each individual student are addressed in a personalized independent home study program.
