How does The Prometheus Academy Work?
Prometheus' academic model mirrors the university model. The parent picks and chooses the classes for the student. Our classes are 16 weeks per semester, with a one week break for Thanksgiving and a one week Spring Break. We provide content and instruction, and the parent supervises study at home, student organization, and completion of student assignments. We are a bridge between home schooling and the university. Just ask some of our community parents!
