Crown offers the Post-Secondary Enrollment Option (PSEO) to qualified students who are Minnesota residents. This program permits students to earn college credit, which may be applied to a degree program at Crown or transferred to another institution. Students from South Heights can take classes in a hybrid format in which they meet for 1.5 hours face-to-face with a qualified Course Assistant selected by South Heights and approved by Crown. The rest of the weekly activities for classes are online, led by one of Crown’s online faculty members. 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. The courses have a low student to instructor ratio and are offered in a 15-week format.


All PSEO students are supported by a dedicated PSEO academic advisor. The tuition and books are free for Minnesota students, but South Heights fees will apply. For more information, email the Director of PSEO Emily Cano, or call 952-446-4246.
