Looking to enroll your student in a microschool?

What is a microschool?

A microschool is tight knit community of about 5-10 learners that is led by an inspiring, caring adult we call a “guide.” Guides come from a wide range of backgrounds and operate microschools out of their homes or other flexible locations. Prenda provides each guide with training, support, and a student-centered K-8th curriculum that fosters engagement, curiosity, and academic growth.

How do I find a microschool?

There are three paths to finding a microschool or bringing Prenda to your community

Become a guide yourself

Prenda’s microschool management system and learning approach are intentionally designed to help you run a microschool whether you have education experience or not.

"I went to a Prenda info session and loved everything I heard but was unsure about leaving my job and pulling my kids from public school. I was nervous that I didn't have what it took to teach, and leaving the only system I knew seemed scary and crazy. We made the jump, and I started a microschool with my own two children and four additional learners. My students love coming to school every day so much that going home is the most challenging transition... I find that my life has slowed down to a pace where I can be present and enjoy every moment. Thank you to Prenda for offering this life-changing experience." -Heather, Prenda guide

Invite a friend to guide

If guiding a microschool won’t work for you, consider inviting a friend to become a guide! Think about the people in your life that you want to have a strong influence on your kids. Tell them you think they'd be a great Prenda guide and point them our way!

Prenda takes a grassroots, organic approach to establishing microschools so there might not be a microshcool in your community (yet!) but together, we can fix that!
