A University Model® school combines the best attributes of home schooling with the best attributes of traditional schooling in order to preserve and maintain the God-ordained family relationship, while offering students the opportunity to achieve a high degree of academic excellence (adapted from the USMI website).
On Mondays and Wednesdays our students are led by classroom teachers alongside their peers.
On Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays students are led by parents through their studies at home.
