Curriculum Options: With SSHA, you can choose the curriculum that best suits your student and family. Families should select curriculum that fits your students' abilities, learning style, interests, and talents as well as their budget.

As such, if your student has an IEP, 504 plan, or diagnosed disability please let us know upon enrollment so that we can work as a team and plan accordingly for your student's success. SSHA is affiliated with FLVS, which allows students to take free online courses via the FLVS Flex option if they choose. Additional curriculum options by grade level will be provided upon enrollment. If you would like to consult SSHA as you select your curriculum for the academic year, a consultation fee of $40 per hour will apply (see our Fee Schedule).
