We are a state-wide correspondence/homeschool program for students grades K-12.

Totem supports you in your educational and assessment choices. We have a variety of tools to offer. PEAKs, MAPS, STAR, etc. to name just a few big ones. Each student is unique. We look forward to working with you to find the best fit for your student and family.

We strive to be the least restrictive while also having policies that are beneficial and sustainable.  Yes, there are educational parameters we must all work within. We will follow the State statutes and regulations while working hard to help you and your student on your homeschooling journey- whatever you want that to look like. 

We also provide you with one of the highest allotments per student- $2500 K-12

All pertinent information is in our Handbook under Documents and Forms
