Choice Navigator Services

What is a Choice Navigator?

Parents who choose to homeschool their children can get the help, guidance, and support that they need from an experienced, knowledgeable, and credentialed Choice Navigator. As the parent, you are still in control of how you homeschool, but you can get support and guidance for anything homeschool-related through your Choice Navigator and your fees for services can either be reimbursed by your child's scholarship if you choose to pay upfront or you can pay directly from your EMA scholarship account.

If you would like help with creating a student learning plan for your child, we can work on that process together so that you not only have curriculum options, but also have resources and suggested supplies to meet your learning goals. If you are new to the Personalized Education Program (PEP) and need help navigating the scholarship application process, need help with how to submit reimbursements, or how to use the scholarship to benefit your child now and in their future, we can discuss all of these things during your scheduled Choice Navigator consultation sessions. If you are new to homeschooling, we can start from the beginning by choosing the best curriculum and learning options for your child. I can help you customize your homeschooling program by taking into consideration your goals, your preferences, your amount of time available to be involved, etc.

With over 18 years of homeschooling experience, I am prepared to help you with whatever age/grade your child is in. We can tackle any challenge or struggle that you are facing together! I will help you overcome any hurdles or difficulties. I will encourage and support you!

Homeschooling is not always easy, but it can be done successfully with some guidance from someone with experience.
