Directors’ Welcome


Hello, Exploration Families!

Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year!

This year, our educational facilitators are excited and equipped to encourage your family every step of the way!

Our events team is pleased to announce numerous field trips, service projects, and community events in the counties we serve.

Our high school program continues to blossom, offering a variety of opportunities including clubs, flexible a-g options and increased high school support.

Our student support (special ed) team has developed streamlined processes to ensure a high level of support and care for our learners.

Our vendor list continues to grow, enriching our learners’ educational opportunities.

Our iLEAD OC learning studio has created an exciting program for learners seeking one- or two-day options in a new, family-friendly location in Costa Mesa.

Our Parent University is gearing up to provide even more educational webinars for our families in a variety of areas.

Additionally, this is a pivotal year for our program, as we seek both charter and WASC renewals. One of the greatest ways you can help support the longevity of our program is through participation in all state-mandated and charter-wide assessments. This will provide measures of growth to both our authorizer and the state of California. We understand that no test can truly measure the diverse talents and giftedness of our home study learners, but we greatly value your participation.

We hope you have a wonderful year of learning and exploring with iLEAD!

Your iLEAD Directors,


Heather Ferenc and Lara Durrell
