    Da Vinci Connect chefsOur families choose Da Vinci Connect and homeschooling for many reasons. Here are a few they report:

    • Homeschooling allows families to truly know how their children learn
    • Homeschooling provides opportunities to explore passion projects
    • Da Vinci Connect focuses on the learner as much as the learning
    • Homeschooling enables the flexibility to participate in extracurricular learning that there is often little
      time for when students spend 35+ hours per week at school
    • Da Vinci Connect has amazing, passionate and compassionate teachers!
    • Project-based learning is awesome!
    • Traditional schools often have bullying and "cliquish" behaviors
