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.

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. Electives can be a mixture of classes on campus with other home school students, online classes, community-based classes, Career and Technical Education classes, field trips, and even dual enrollment (college core classes, non-electives).

Please click the page links in the sidebar to the right for more detailed information regarding classes, programs, forms, etc. If you would like to discuss our programs further, you may contact the partnership director, Mary Wilkinson, at  or (616) 566-7587.
