One Family’s Experience
Home schooling parent’s quote: “Taking courses at PBC during high school has greatly benefited our two home schooled students! They are now enrolled in a four year university better prepared for college-level coursework and having fulfilled certain degree requirements ahead of time. The credits from PBC transferred easily and our family was able to save a considerable amount of money.” Download a Homeschool Brochure or apply: go to: Start Application
