Home School Enrichment

AUM's Home School classes are enrichment classes that are specially designed for home school students. Class sizes are small so students receive individualized attention. All classes are very hands on. Our goal is to offer learning experiences that parents are not able or willing to attempt at home. All classes have a 12 student maximum.
