The freedom to homeschool was awesome! IDEA is a part of Galena School District. I was able to create the education that interested me within the parameters of high school graduation requirements.

I completed my 21 credits of high school as a home-schooler through Galena City School District's IDEA program. I loved it!! Because of IDEA, I was able to graduate high school a year early!
Teachers and faculty were kind and caring. It was a small town so at times could be overly conservative.
