TPS High Scholars – Be a High Scholar, not just a high schooler!
24 College Credits in homeschool
“High Scholars has been awesome! It changed my perspective of the world and how I perceive things around me; it challenged me, but I found a new sense of adventure. Class is always a fun trip down history filled with stories as old as time; it’s mind-boggling. High Scholars became more than a class to me, it was my epiphany. And all of my teachers and classmates were amazing!” Abigail J (student)

“I really cannot praise High Scholars highly enough. The teachers are fun, engaging, knowledgeable, and passionate about what they teach. I never knew I could learn so much while still having fun. With this class meeting four days a week, there is more of an opportunity to grow closer as a class, and I am so grateful for the friends I have made. Rather than studying different eras of history as compartmentalized sections of time, I have learned how all of history interconnects, giving me a much fuller understanding of the world of the past. This course has transformed my writing and helped me reach academic heights that I never knew I could.” Carolyn Y (student)
“I recommend this course because it so successfully combines English (literature), History, and Art History and they all follow the same timeline! I had never done Art History before, and the College Art Appreciation part of High Scholars Year 2 helped me understand and appreciate art in so many new ways.” Glorianna G (student)
