Three years ago, I was looking for a different education option for my son, Mo. 

An environment that sparked his love of learning…

Where he would feel comfortable, and like he belonged…


I enrolled Mo in a Prenda Microschool—a tuition-free education option for K-8 students here in Arizona. 

Mo was forever changed. He was thrilled to be a part of this small-group setting where he could work at his own pace, collaborate with others, and get one-one-one support. 


In just a year, he went from two years behind in math to one year ahead. He was confident, thriving, and...

That’s all I ever wanted.
