How It Works

Off-campus families partner with Clonlara advisors to develop their own ideas about how they want to school, from the use of structured lesson plans to open discovery methods and everything in between. Along the way, they work with our advisors to design an educational plan to fit their student’s unique learning style, needs, and goals. Advisors check in with families throughout the semester and are available as needed to make customized recommendations for learning activities, educational resources, and more. In addition, Clonlara’s documentation process provides off-campus families with official records that seamlessly transfer to other schools.

Grades K–8

Learning should be fun, especially in the early years when children are getting a sense of themselves and the world around them. With the support of Clonlara advisors, parents oversee their student’s learning and are asked to submit two progress reports each year. Report cards can be issued upon request.

Grades 9–12

Clonlara’s off-campus high school students have ultimate choice in following their interests and can earn credit by pursuing their passions. At the end of each semester, they submit a credit request form for each course completed, which our advisors use to issue high school credit. Upon meeting Clonlara’s graduation requirements, the students receive an accredited private school diploma.

Support and Guidance

Off-campus families receive an education guide, which contains an overview of how our program works; tips for getting started; and descriptions of different learning styles, educational resources, and approaches to schooling. Families also receive questionnaires to help our advisors understand their student’s curiosities, strengths, interests, talents, needs, and goals.

Throughout the process, parents and students document their educational activities and choose methods for evaluating and measuring their learning. They submit progress reports (at the elementary level) or credit request forms (at the high school level) for our advisors and registrar to review and approve.

Upon request, advisors can provide educational standards and benchmarks for parents who want to know how their student compares with other children their age.

Flexible Enrollment Options

In addition to our full-time Off-Campus Program, Clonlara offers a range of enrollment options that can be tailored to a family’s unique needs and circumstances. Please contact us for more information or to enroll in these programs.

Short-Term Enrollment

Clonlara’s Short-Term Enrollment Program gives K–12 students enrolled in other private or public schools the opportunity for independent study. Students can explore new subjects, take a semester away, or enroll part time in Clonlara’s Off-Campus Program and part time in another school. High school students can earn credit that transfers to other schools.

Dual Enrollment (for Students from Another School)

Any student in grades K–12 may concurrently enroll in the Off-Campus Program and another school. Clonlara School can grant credit and have the credit transferred to the other school, or we can accept credits toward a Clonlara diploma from other accredited schools.

At the high school level, students usually work with their guidance counselor to choose what classes they want to take as independent study classes with Clonlara advisor services. The classes they choose should fit into their goals for high school graduation and post-graduation plans.
