How it works

Prenda is a unique education option that connects students with local microschools. Caring individuals, called Guides, run these microschools from their homes or other suitable locations while Prenda provides the learning experience, state standard-aligned curriculum, and supportive community.

I am a mom of five and first heard of Prenda through a friend. Prenda provided me with all the training and support I needed to open my dream microschool.
