Frequently Asked Questions
How does funding work?
In every state each student receives funding for educational purposes. Harmony takes a percentage of these state funds to perform services and to pass on educational resources to the students. The school district receives the remainder of funding for their part of the partnership.
As a school, what role do we play for building enrollment?
Harmony does all the heavy lifting with the enrollment. We bring the enrollment to the schools. We accommodate and work with schools in the way they request.

When did Harmony begin?
