Homeschool parent’s run the school and home, and that can be quite a balancing act. Keeping both running smoothly (well, at least moving forward; not too sure how smooth sometimes) involves time management, curriculum prep, teaching, motivating, coaching, and the list goes on and on. And I should know! My name is Kim Harrington. I’m the administrative assistant of General Education here at Moraine Park, and I’ve lived this journey first-hand by homeschooling my children.
Moraine Park Technical College is a homeschool friendly school and we want to show homeschoolers just how much we want to partner with you.
We are being purposeful in reaching out to homeschoolers in the Moraine Park district to provide you with higher education opportunities so that your children are well prepared to become future leaders in their fields. But don’t forget higher education is not just for our children. There are great opportunities for everyone in the family to take classes and earn degrees.
Moraine Park is committed to and proud of our veteran and military students. The college offers a number of programs approved for VA benefits and courses with a variety of flexible scheduling that is attractive to student veterans and military students alike. Moraine Park thanks you for your service and for allowing us to help you further your education.

As the need for counselors training in treating problem gambling increases, Moraine Park Technical College will now be able to meet that need.
Moraine Park has partnered with the Wisconsin Council on Problem Gambling and will be offering a 5 credit certificate for Introduction to Problem Gambling. Introduction to Problem Gambling I will be offered in Fall 2017 and Introduction to Problem Gambling II will be offered in Spring 2018.
Synonyms for partnership include: cooperation, assistance, interest, sharing, community and ownership. At Moraine Park Technical College, we embrace all of these characteristics of partnership with our students. And homeschooled students are no exception and benefit tremendously from partnering with the college.
Our relationship starts before high school, as young students participate in events at Moraine Park designed to educate them and give them hands on opportunities to try out various careers for their future. I am confident that these experiences will lead to more research and learning after the event by the student and family.
An exciting new student living option for Moraine Park students is nearing completion.

Think life has handed you setbacks too large to overcome? Try telling that to DeWayne Sexton. Losing a mother as a child. Being separated from his siblings growing up. Reuniting only to have his brothers be killed shortly after. Joining the military and losing many close friends in battle. Losing his last remaining brother to a drunk driver. Being diagnosed with cancer. Feeling too old and too lost and too worthless. DeWayne has seemingly been through it all – and has somehow weathered all these struggles to do remarkable things.
One of those remarkable things is being named our 2017 Student of the Year. We couldn’t be more thrilled to give him this honor. To say that DeWayne is deserving is a tremendous understatement. Here’s DeWayne’s story of struggle and finding purpose throughout these setbacks, in his own words:
