The History of our Non-Profit Organization:

The AHEP-PTO was set up to help homeschooling families and previous alternative learning parent partnership school - Anacortes Home Education Partnership (closed by the Anacortes School District in 2011). The parent organization provides a structure through which students can have educational and classroom opportunities they might not be able to have educating alone. The AHEP PTO in the past has organized classes, classroom materials, teachers, and field trips which can be attended by local-area home-schooled and alternatively schooled students. Furthermore, links are provided to external providers of educational resources which can be used by these students as well.

Anacortes School District Homeschooling and Alternative Schooling Options

Cap Sante PTSO is active at Cap Sante High School for grades 9-12. Contact Cap Sante if you have questions about the coming year!

Anacortes Home Education Partnership PTO was first established in 2010 to support alternative learning in the Anacortes area. This included families choosing to homeschool. Over the years as the school district adjusted to needs of the community, Cap Sante High School became the alternative learning source within the Anacortes School District. The AHEP-PTO became the "umbrella-parent" non-profit organization that will continue to support Cap Sante PTSO.


If you intend to homeschool your child in the City of Anacortes or to cross register them (take some classes at a district location and homeschool the rest) you need to fill out the "Declaration of Intent to Homeschool" form and mail it back to the District by September 15.
