Who Are We?
Branson Academy began in 1996 as our family home school. In 2004, Branson Academy, Inc was established as a PSP (private school satellite program) in California to offer a legal umbrella covering for local homeschooling families. We now support homeschool families throughout the state, international/traveling students, and other states where PSP's are permitted.
Cynthia Simunovich, Director of Branson Academy, is the mother of six homeschooled children, who all survived homeschooling through high school! She received her B.A. in Theater Arts from UCSC, and has over twenty years teaching experience.
Our PSP is designed to support parents in creating an engaging, individualized learning environment that meets the unique needs of their children.
“We are thankful for your Independent Study school services and hope to stay with you all the way through high school.”
