Home School Students:

Red Comet courses are very popular with Home School students since it allows them to enroll only in the courses they need. If the home school student is a resident of WA State, the student is eligible to receive state funds for the enrolled courses. Please call us to check if this applies to you.

Students attending Private Schools

Private Schools often provide excellent curriculum to their students. However, because of restrictions on size and / or staff, they may not be able to offer multiple choices in their core curriculum and often do not offer many electives. Several private schools in WA have greatly expanded their curriculum without any additional investment by simply partnering with Red Comet. For private school students who are residents of WA State, the student may be eligible to receive state funds for the enrolled courses. Please call us to check if this applies to you.
