Bruce Institute of Higher Learning is an online school for students in grades K-12. We also have a homeschool division and an association here in St Croix!  A family does not have to enroll their child in our school in order to be apart of  the homeschool association. The homeschool organization here is called St Croix Home Educators' Association (SCHEA).  It will provide valuable information regarding homeschooling in the Virgin Islands such as:

1.) what parents must legally do in order to homeschool or have their child homeschooled,

2.) updates on what the Homeschool Legal Defense Association is doing to prevent to Virgin Islands Dept of Education from passing laws that violate the rights of parents to have freedom of choice pertaining to the education of their children,

3.)which local private schools are "homeschool friendly" meaning they offer online or campus classes and extracurricular classses / sports for area homeschool students,

4.) as well as members-only events, like field trips, classes, sports tryouts like soccer, cheerleading, dance, basketball, etc, clubs such as SADD and FCA to name a few, and events like graduations, proms, and banquets.

And much more!

Also, if any family is interested in speaking with me regarding enrolling their child in our local, on-island program for us to homeschool them, they certainly may shoot me an email to warriorsschool@yahoo.com. I'm one of the teachers and I live in St Croix. I am offering a hybrid program that combines our online classes with traditional textbook studies as well, which has proven highly succesful for our students in the states.  Again, it is also possible to "attend" our school totally online, and we are accredited!

Hello Everyone,
We are a family of four moving to St. Thomas. Our children are 14 / 9th grade and 17/ 11th grade. We are not only looking for other home schooled teens, but also tutoring for Algebra I and pre-cal/ trig and possibly physics. Any advice would be appreciated!
Also, does anyone participate in the St. John School for the Arts?
Thanks,
Melissa, Steve, Clare and Aran Rhodes

In my opinion, it is best for the students to study at home or in private school. I also provide my Dissertation help services for the students of USA, it is also private and easy to do.
