Spring 2014 courses updated.  Registration for Fall 2014 PSEO at YEAH begins April 17, 2014.

PSEO at YEAH was created to provide academically challenging curricula taught from a Christian world view in an atmosphere that is nurturing, supportive and endorsing of the values of home educating students and their parents.

As home school parents, we take great care in the planning of our precious children's educational curriculum as well as the selection of outside instructors who we know will influence our children not only academically, but also socially and spiritually. 

As home school parents, we diligently work at the selection of a post high school college or university that we believe is best suited not only for our children's educational needs and goals, but one that will also positively influence their life choices in careers and friendships for the future. 

At YEAH (Youth Educated At Home), we believe that the same care and planning should go into the selection of a child's PSEO curriculum and instructors which will influence not only the developing child's educational studies, but also will greatly influence their social and spiritual lives both now and in the future. 



The Academy offers AP courses (Advanced Placement) where students in 10th-12th grades (MN or WI) can earn college credit for courses successfully complete through this program. No mid-year entry for new students is available.

  • AP at YEAH courses for students in 10-12 grades (age 15 and above)

    • Drawing

    • 2-D Design (11th-12th only)

    • Language & Composition (writing)
