Mission Vista Academy Family Liaison
Hello! My name is Andrea Hart, and I am a homeschooling momma of two beautiful girls. Thanks to Mission Vista Academy, we have been homeschooling for 2 years and absolutely love the freedom and new learning experiences that it provides us daily. Homeschooling has changed our lives for the better, and I can’t wait to help other families learn, grow, and navigate through this extraordinary journey. I'm here to help encourage, guide, and answer any question you may have! I can’t wait to connect with you.
We want to hear from you!
What do you want to hear more about? Drop us an email!
We'd love to answer all of your questions in regards to homeschooling
and learn more about what your homeschool lifestyle looks like!
Our goal is to provide you with the best homeschool program in Riverside County and San Bernardino County...so we want your feedback! If you have any comments, suggestions, or concerns, please let us know!
