Homeschool Parents:

The Jefferson Scholar Program method will help you educate your family, not just school them.

Help your high-school-aged youth level up by learning the Jefferson Scholar Program method for homeschool.

Don't just give your youth a workbook. Help them build an education.

Public schools are falling to pieces, and not just because of what they're teaching, but because of how they're teaching.

What are you doing that's different from public school? Are you doing it intentionally, or is it a happy coincidence?

Is your youth actively studying, or just doing worksheets to get it done and check the box?

As a homeschool parent of high-school-aged youth, you've likely wondered how you can teach appropriate high-school-level topics without being an expert in everything. How do you keep his or her attention and help them see the beauty in learning?

Teenagers aren't always likely to seek out learning for themselves. You've tried different methods, different styles, but there's something wrong with almost everything.

Jefferson Scholar Program

is your answer.

We aren't a curriculum. We aren't a workbook. We're a method.

The Jefferson Scholar Program helps your youth choose the next level. It teaches scholar skills and allows a student to chase his or her curiosity to become truly invested.

No regurgitation of information here!

I'm Lisa Mauer.

In my 17 years of teaching high school students, I've learned a lot about how education differs from schooling and how a true education can help youth both in the short and long term.

Education and freedom are symbiotic, they work together for the benefit of those who choose to invest themselves. I truly am passionate about helping youth choose the challenge that will lead them to personal freedom.

Freedom is not just being able to do anything, but the ability to choose to do those things that better yourself and the world around you. I dedicated myself to developing, refining, and fine-tuning the JSP through six years, and through over 145 high-school scholars. I know the ideas, principles, and mindsets of the Jefferson Scholar Program work to help youth take ownership of their own educations.

A few benefits the JSP:

  • Youth get the chance to be curious and learn what he or she interested in.

  • Empowers youth to take responsibility for their own educations.

  • Youth do their work, not mine or yours.

  • Opportunity to practice lifetime study and work habits.

  • Youth enjoy beautiful learning instead of forced learning

From our Facilitators:

I thoroughly enjoyed the JSP Bootcamp! Lisa has cracked the code to help students get motivated to not only understand how to develop good learning habits but also to acquire or keep their love of learning. If we don't love learning while we are young-will we become life long learners? I don't know but the JSP Bootcamp opened my eyes to a new approach in order to help my kids on the right track. We have all heard the saying that if we don't know history it will repeat itself. Well my kids are going to learn it, know it, and feel it with this JSP Program! I would highly recommend this class! Thank you Lisa!

You!!! Thank you! It is because of you that my kids know how to learn on a much higher level, understand that primary sources (not the internet) is a closer source of truth, and that quality is definitely much more important than quantity! Thank you for every inspirational thought, kind word, and high expectation you held my kids to! And I have truly loved my friendship with you! I love that you are still inspiring, and you know and show that is one of your missions! Thank you, Lisa Mauer, you will always be one of the best examples of a Mentor.

From our Students:

JSP is the best class I have ever taken. I was sure that I would fail, and I still came to class because the life lessons I was learning were so important. I would totally recommend this course to anyone who wants to improve [their] life. All you have to do is give your heart to learning.

~JFH 22-23

In only one school year at JSP I have learned more about hard work and myself than in 9 years of schooling. JSP truly allows for you to own your education, ... I have learned how to study to better myself rather than my grade. I have learned to study the world and myself to discover truth. I have grown relationships I will treasure for years to come. JSP is truly the best experience one can choose for themselves.

~ETH 22-23

JSP was a good class that helped me to manage my time and skills.
Mrs. Mauer is amazing and is so helpful and supportive. She has
always wanted us to succeed.
