Your co-op is a College Classroom


Crown offers this dynamic PSEO program to qualified students at SOUTH HEIGHTS. This program permits students to earn college credit for free while still in high school. Courses have a low student-to-instructor ratio for an optimal learning experience.


Students from South Heights can take classes in a hybrid format in which Crown’s online instructor partners with a course assistant from South Heights.  Course assistants, who are selected by South Heights and approved by Crown, lead weekly 1.5 hours face-to-face 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.
