TR Partnership

Three Rivers Partnership is a collaboration between parents, students, the local school district, and the community.  Our purpose is to provide dynamic and enriching, supplemental educational opportunities for homeschooled and privately schooled students.  All of our classes are also available to traditional students enrolled in Three Rivers Community Schools.

Parents (and private schools) are still the primary educators, but students enroll part-time with Three Rivers Community Schools and are able to access some of their tax dollars to take electives for free. All electives are virtual learning experiences with optional, real world application offered by approved, community partners. Students can even enroll in Career and Technical Education classes, dual enrollment, and even join us on discovery field trips.
