Sunshine Scholars


Sunshine Scholars is coming this fall!!


Our secular enrichment cooperative program will be located in the central Florida area. We plan to meet on Wednesdays. Our program is intended for families to help each other and to allow an opportunity for our students to learn together as well as providing a space for friendship and acceptance. 


Sunshine Scholars will be low cost and can direct bill FES recipients for the program. The program is intended for students prek-12 (younger siblings welcome), with a high school drop-off option. Core academic subjects and electives will be offered and courses will include project based learning and hands-on activities. The program will be open to all home educated students in the central Florida area. Students will not need to be registered with SSHA to participate in Sunshine Scholars.

The program is still in the planning stages for the next academic year. If you are interested in joining us, please complete the form below and we will be in touch!
