Homeschool Partnership

Jenison International Academy is excited to offer elective course options to current homeschool students and their families for grades K-12.  There are many opportunities to select from with each course facilitated by a JIA teacher in a partnership with each family.  Courses are free to families who reside in West Michigan, specifically in the following counties:  Allegan, Barry, Ionia, Kent, Montcalm, Muskegon, Newaygo, and Ottawa.

Available Nonessential Courses

JIA uses Blackboard as the engaging learning platform, providing direct teacher and peer interaction through virtual participation.  Courses are 100% online and can be taken alongside a variety of Community Partner opportunities.

Note: Registration with each partner is the sole responsibility of the family and availability is determined by the individual Community Partner, not JIA.  Course tuition is paid to the Community Partners by JIA, and is capped at a set/available amount.  Tuition costs that exceed the capped amount paid by JIA are the responsibility of the student/family.  Any materials, registration fees, or other items required for the course will not be covered by JIA.
