Field Trips and Service Projects

iLEAD’s epic community building and planning team sets us apart! With over 100 field trips and service projects planned throughout the year, there is certainly something for everyone to enjoy! By listening to our families’ suggestions, a wide variety of field trips and service projects have been planned for each region we service.

Another exciting benefit to homeschooling are the special discounts and/or events offered by local businesses, museums, or other entities to independent study families.
