Your co-op is a College Classroom

Crown offers this dynamic PSEO program to qualified students at WEST. This program permits students to earn college credit for free while taking classes at WEST. Courses have a low student-to-instructor ratio for an optimal learning experience.

Students from WEST can take classes in a hybrid format in which Crown’s online instructor partners with a course assistant from WEST.  Course assistants, who are selected by WEST and approved by Crown, lead weekly 1.5 hour face-to-face sessions in which they guide students through course activities provided by the instructor. These sessions provide tutoring assistance and supplemental instruction to students.  Major assignments are graded by Crown’s course instructor.  This option gives students the opportunity to get support from a familiar homeschool course assistant while taking a high-quality online course under the guidance of a credentialed faculty member from Crown. 

All PSEO students are supported by a dedicated PSEO academic advisor. The tuition and books are free for Minnesota students.
