ProjectFUN Homeschool

ProjectFUN Homeschool – Registration for Fall 2017 and Spring 2018 is now OPEN!

ProjectFUN Homeschool provides students in grades K-12 with opportunities to study video game programming, art and animation, game design, engineering, and music and sound design. In response to feedback and demand from homeschooling families, DigiPen will have NEW courses that teach general science, applied math, and even basic reading and writing! Beyond the specific content covered in each course, students will also develop age appropriate study skills in each course including research, note-taking, organizational skills, and writing.

DigiPen has a full-year opportunity for Teens – the DigiPen Game Development Academy. The DigiPen Game Development Academy is a challenging, multidisciplinary experience designed to teach students how to create video games using math, physics, computer science, art and animation, sound and music, and game design principles over the course of two full days.  In response to feedback from current families, we are adding an optional third day that includes Applied Math for Games and The Hero's Journey.  These two classes are also available to students who are not in the DigiPen Game Development Academy.

Contact homeschool@digipen.edu with any questions regarding our homeschool programs.

Prerequisites

We want all students to be successful at DigiPen! In order for your student to make the most out of their time at DigiPen homeschool, families new to DigiPen's Homeschool program are required to speak with a DigiPen Academy Homeschool Coordinator prior to enrolling in courses.  This allows us to assist you in placing your student into the appropriate courses.  To schedule a time to speak with a coordinator, please contact homeschool@digipen.edu

Prerequisites for courses, as well as the general grade range that a given course is suitable for, are listed with the specific course descriptions. DigiPen understands the abilities of homeschooled students do not always fit traditional standards and you are encouraged to contact DigiPen should you feel there are factors that should be considered.  

 

Location

DigiPen utilizes classrooms at Overlake Church, which is located directly across the street from DigiPen’s campus at 9900 Willows Road NE, Redmond. This location allows for more spacious classroom space, convenient drop off and pickup (with less traffic and more parking!), and better suited activity space.
