About The Pearl Remote Democratic High School
All of our teachers are experts in their fields, and welcome students with all learning styles and abilities! Teens can take all of our classes, a few, or just one. Because The Pearl is Democratic High School, our classes follow a self-directed work style where students get control of their education. Additionally, we cap our classes at 10 students, so everyone gets the support they need.
Our curriculum is made up of hybrid-homeschooling classes for teens. This means that families who are already homeschoolers can supplement the education they provide with classes from experts to insure that your child gets the best education they can receive.
We teach our classes online, using Zoom, and they are open worldwide! Students that work directly with The Pearl are eligible to work towards a WASC-Accredited US high school diploma through our partnership program with Angeles Workshop. This makes the Pearl an excellent option for students who struggle in mainstream education. Additionally, students who attend The Pearl from outside the US are still eligible to receive a US diploma.
