Empowering Every Student to Learn

Since every student learns differently, we focus more on the student than the content.

We use leading evaluation methods to clearly identify students’ strengths and weaknesses, and then develop realistic learning objectives with a comprehensive individualized learning program for each student.  As a parent, you might be a bit apprehensive about choosing an online program. At Royal Academy Education, as long as you have passion for your child’s success and are willing to devote the time and effort, we will give you the tools, skills, and support you need to help your child be successful.

As an internationally accredited K-12 school. Our program awakens the power of learning in each child at each stage of learning. In the lower grades our program taps into students’ natural inquisitiveness to engage young minds and establish a solid foundation for future learning. In the middle grades we help foster students’ abilities to think on their own with courses filled with more sophisticated concepts designed to achieve new heights of critical thinking. In the the upper grades we help teens identify their goals, and chart their own paths with core courses and an expansive curriculum of over 125 individual courses.

What parents, students, and graduates are saying...


I cannot thank you enough for your support of our son. It had been my intent since his birth to home school him, but after becoming a single parent I just did not see how that would work. You single-handedly saved a bright, wonderful young man from becoming just another statistic. I am certain he would have dropped out of school without your support and caring.

Executive Director has an amazing gift!

My daughter had the privilege of having Mrs. Cote as a teacher during most of her Home school years. I have no doubt that this played a crucial role in her long term education. My daughter is thriving in ways that I believe would have never been possible without Mrs. Cote's unique knowledge and effort in preparing my daughter for her crucial college years. Penny has an amazing gift in how she understands each individual child and nurtures each student to bring out their very best. Anyone that has the privilege of having her as a teacher will be amazed at her abilities and passion. As a mom, I could never thank her enough for all she has done for my daughter!

By far the best service in the nation

Our child has been enrolled at Royal Academy over the last 4 years. I would step out there and say they are by far the highest of the highest moral character and integrity of ANY service you can find in the national homeschooling community. I would not trust my child’s education, transcripts, and diplomas to anyone more than them.

A relationship for life

The unique experience of learning under the direction of a private tutor was a critical aspect in my academic formation. The format of the courses not only gave me the benefits of an integrative and personalized program, but it also allowed me to form a meaningful and enduring relationship with Mrs. Cote. She was—and continues to be—an essential advisor in my academic endeavors. Throughout my middle and high-school years she was instrumental in helping me formulate and achieve my goals.
