Hawaii Families - Learn How You Can Access Individualized and Flexible Home-based Educational Programs for Free
Free Individualized Education
Every child has different capacities, interests and passions. We understand that students flourish when education is individualized to their unique needs.
Harmony provides a variety of courses and programs for all ages, ensuring a truly customized learning experience.
Hawaii students who want to participate in the Harmony program for free do so by enrolling with a Harmony partner public school. Families also have the option to purchase a curriculum package directly from Harmony.
This gives families the flexibility to learn at home, access online curriculum and attend on-site programs (where available).
Each Harmony family receives a mentor who assists parents in planning for each child’s success. The mentor is the family’s primary contact with Harmony and is available to explain Harmony programs, match curriculum and resources to student needs, and provide support to parents and students throughout the year. Mentors work with parents to ensure that students have a wonderful educational experience.
Each Student’s Schedule Can Be Customized to Their Unique Needs!With parent and mentor guidance, each student will create a personalized schedule, choosing their courses from a variety of different providers.
