Young Actress Succeeds with WRA

The mom of a young actress in Hollywood writes about her daughter's experience homeschooling while acting:

Katy is doing amazingly well with homeschooling!  It has genuinely been the best thing we have ever done and I so wish we would have started it years ago!  We purchased the Monarch on-line school system and she is in the 9th grade unit for all subjects except for math in which she is in 11th grade.  They have a way to test them to see which program would be best and that is where she fell and I am happy to report that she is getting all A's and 1 B.

I can't express how much we appreciate the flexibility of working with West River Academy and it is just perfect for her learning style.  She can do school when it is best for her and if she takes a few weeks off she can easily catch up at her own pace.  So far she is ahead on every subject except for French and should be done by April but we let her work at her own pace.  I'll send you a copy of her transcripts when she finishes.  I talk with several other parents out here about school and the other programs seem very restrictive and more focused on scheduled teacher meetings rather than the kids themselves and what is in their best interest so I highly recommend you guys to everyone!  There is a new mom moving to California and I think she will register with West River Academy this summer!
