Brainchild Creations Community Academy is excited to announce our new community service-based educational program for homeschool students.

This will be serious a work environment where motivated children will need to be able to focus and work hard to accomplish daily, weekly, and monthly goals.  All course students must be capable of paying close attention to tasks provided and carrying out tasks in a group setting where each team member is responsible for the success of the whole.
