    Meet The Principal

    Hi, I’m Jerry Finkler. Homeschooling became a way of life for my family beginning in 1996, when we lived in Fairbanks. Additionally, I’ve been working in publically-funded homeschool programs since 2007. I understand that the idea of homeschooling might sound overwhelming at first. That is why I am committed to providing you with the support, guidance, and resources you will need every step of the way from registration to graduation. You can do this.
