Independent Use Courses

Purchase any course 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 are available for anyone, without the need to enroll in Ensign Peak Academy.

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

When using our courses for homeschool:

  • The parent is considered the teacher
  • Parents are responsible for meeting state requirements
  • Parents may choose to compile a portfolio for their student, in addition to creating homeschool records — for example, a high school transcript
  • Parents award high school diplomas in accordance with their state guidelines, or when they feel their student has fulfilled high school requirements

Instructions for Individuals

If you are not part of a group and simply wish to study any course 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 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: live teaching, submissions, feedback, grading, clubs, certificates, grade reports, transcripts or high school credit.
