The Homeschool Academy celebrated its fifth year Friday with its fourth annual party at City Beach.

Melinda Rossman, principal at the THA said the school currently has 78 families and 99 students. Coming into the fall, she'll have some openings for new families after a year of restricted class sizes.

The school also recently gained a drama teacher, she said, and will have additional programming in the fall.

"I'm excited we're so well-received by the district and the community," Rossman said. "It's their community and their school. I'm just the facilitator."

Rossman will be host a New Family Orientation for THA from 10 a.m. to noon Thursday, July 21, which will be the only summer opening for new students to enroll. Those interested can contact Rossman at melinda.rossman@lposd.org, for more information.
