Independent Use Courses and Unit Studies

Purchase any course or unit study for independent use.

For individual students, families, co-operative learning groups and other academies

Planning to homeschool? Leading a co-op or academy for Latter-day Saints? We can help! Our easy-to-use, beautifully designed courses and unit studies are now available for anyone, without the need to enroll in Ensign Peak Academy.

Courses and unit studies purchased for independent use are provided to you in Canvas, an online learning management system. Your access will never expire.

Instructions for Individuals

If you are not part of a group and simply wish to study any course or unit study as an individual, you may purchase them in this shop. After receipt of purchase, we will set up your account in Canvas and add you to the course or unit study that you purchased. You may start anytime and take as long as you need to complete the course.

Ensign Peak Academy does not provide the following services for students in our Independent Use courses and unit studies: live teaching, submissions, feedback, grading, clubs, certificates, grade reports, transcripts or high school credit.

Instructions for Groups

Elementary School

Planning to offer elementary school classes for your co-operative learning group or academy?

  • Simply send us the first and last names and email addresses of your mentors and the courses or unit studies they will be teaching. Email your list to admin@ensignpeakacademy.com.
