Verdugo Academy is the best independent study program! Unlike other homeschooling programs who give out packets, Verdugo Academy provides textbooks and online resources to help students understand their lesson. The teachers and admin are very understanding. You can call Verdugo Academy your home.

There are some opportunities outside of the school that are mentioned/encouraged. But not many students participate.
It is a small independent-study school. There are no athletics.
