Hand In Hand Christian Montessori-CREO


Your high school is a College Classroom


Crown offers the Post-Secondary Enrollment Option (PSEO) to qualified students at Hand In Hand-CREO. This program permits students to earn college credit for free without leaving CREO.

Crown PSEO courses are offered in a hybrid format.  Students attend weekly face-to-face class sessions at CREO and receive instruction from their teacher or a Course Assistant.  They also receive additional instruction and feedback online.  This option gives students the opportunity to get support from a familiar teacher while taking a high-quality online course under the guidance of a credentialed faculty member from Crown.

CREO students may also take Crown PSEO courses that are offered completely online. The courses have a low student to instructor ratio and are offered in a 15-week format.
