Home School Information


 Welcome to the Ballard Home School Information page

At Ballard, our mission is to provide parents with assistance and support in their home schooling journey. You may be a veteran home school family or a family considering home school as an option for your children’s education. This website contains all of the home school information and documents that you will need to enroll your family in the program that best fits your needs.

As a home school family, you have the following options for enrollment.

  1. Home School Assistance Program (HSAP)—See HSAP Handbook for program details and service options.
  2. Dual Enrollment
  3. Both HSAP and Dual Enrollment
  4. Neither HSAP or Dual Enrollment

The Competent Private Instruction Handbook and the HSAP Handbook will provide you all of the information that you need to help you decide which options work best for your family.
