The vision of the Bellflower Unified School District’s Home Education Independent Study Academy is to provide a high quality, well rounded educational experience for home education students. The alternative educational program will be one that is rigorous, relevant, and engaging.

OUR PROGRAM
The Home Education Independent Study Academy offers families that homeschool the best of both worlds.  Parents have the assistance of a credentialed teacher and access to standards-based textbooks while retaining the autonomy to design their student's learning based on California standards and their own values and ideals. Our goal is to assist parents with the implementation of a creative, well-rounded, standards-based curriculum that is tailored to the abilities and interests of their children while maintaining and drawing upon the principles of their family.

CLASSIC MODEL: 
Grades K – 8: Parents are the primary teacher five days a week. Students and parents meet at least once a month with a credentialed teacher to review work and set goals. Students may also participate in enrichment learning experiences on Fridays.

CORE MODEL: 
Grades K – 8: Students attend school three full days per week and are taught at home two days. Students and parents meet at least once a month with a credentialed teacher to review work and set goals. Students may also participate in enrichment learning experiences on Fridays.

ENRICHMENT FRIDAYS
Each week students have the opportunity to come to Las Flores Educational Center for half a day to participate in an engaging, standards-based lesson and activity as well as both a music and technology class.

USE OF OUR LABS & FACILITIES
Enrolled students and parents have access to our computer, science and mathematics labs and Reading Lounge. Each of these rooms is equipped with a wide variety of content-specific instructional materials.
