Registrations & Tuition

Registering for ProjectFUN Workshops

Homeschool Registration

We want all students to be successful here! For your student to make the most out of their time at the DigiPen Homeschool Academy, families new to the program are required to speak with a DigiPen Homeschool Academy Coordinator before enrolling in courses. We can assist you in placing your student into the appropriate courses. 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 that the abilities of homeschooled students do not always fit traditional standards and you are encouraged to contact us should you feel there are factors that should be considered.

To schedule a time to speak with a coordinator, or to arrange a tour, please contact homeschool@digipen.edu.
