Homeschooling with SNACS: Academic Challenge and Community Connection
Families decide to homeschool for many different reasons—a more personalized curriculum, more hands-on learning opportunities, a greater connection to family and community. SNACS, the first charter school in Nevada, was founded to achieve these same objectives, and our innovative charter school curriculum can provide critical structure, social connection, and support for your homeschooling journey.
The hands-on, student-driven learning techniques, cutting edge technology, and community-based approach of expeditionary learning utilized across the SNACS campus also connects different kinds of learners across great distances. And because self-directed learning and student empowerment are at the core of our curriculum, homeschool students often have a head start!
Unlike other school models, the PLAY EL education model does not ask students to conform to an educational vision. PLAY asks them to create their own and helps them achieve their goals—making it the ideal educational model for homeschooling students.
You don’t need to live in Reno for your child to be a part of Nevada’s premier charter school community. The SNACS innovative preschool model, elementary school model, middle school model, and high school model help families get the benefits of enrolling at SNACS, which aligns with a homeschooling philosophy.
