As parents and successful entrepreneurs, we quickly realized the school system was not working for our son. Traditional school was squashing his passions and not preparing him for his future.
One day while traveling through Africa, we dreamed of a life where our son could learn by experiencing world cultures and history firsthand while having time to explore his interests.
So, we took the leap! We sold our successful company in 2010 and moved to the Caribbean to embark on our homeschooling journey.
We fell in love with the homeschool lifestyle, the people we encountered, and the ability to personalize our son's education. But we soon realized there was a need for support, training, and technology to make homeschooling easier for families and educators.
That's why we founded Skipper, a family-friendly, social learning platform that supports learning at home, within communities, online, and in the classroom. Everything we do celebrates family, childhood, and the freedom to live your best life.
Now that our homeschool journey is over, we can look back and say the decision to homeschool was the best choice. Our son is very successful, and we believe Skipper can help other families and educators experience the same success.
