“Clonlara School was founded in 1967 as an innovative, private school serving 5 through 18 year old students in Ann Arbor.” In addition to Clonlara’s “fully-functioning day school” that is accredited by the National Private School Accreditation Alliance, they also have a Home Based Program and CompuHigh, an online high school.

As part of their Home Based Program, “Clonlara does enough of the parents' administrative tasks to allow them the freedom to teach on their own.” They provide home educators with a comprehensive K -12 program, as well as a contact teacher for each family who “shepherds the student files, responds to parent letters or e-mail, and offers as much counseling and guidance as necessary.” Other services Clonlara offers include interacting with all outside officials for the family regarding their child’s education, including completing forms for outside agencies such as Social Security or Social Services. Clonlara maintains all student records, and their graduates receive complete final transcripts and a private school diploma. Also, the director is available as a witness in court procedures for families who face court action not directly involved with home schooling.

Clonlara’s CompuHigh, an online high school that operates entirely online, allows students to take individual courses, or their entire high school education, at the end of which they receive a private school diploma. “Students set the pace for their own courses and each course instructor works with students to achieve mastery of the subject matter, before moving on to the next lesson. Enrollment can take place at any time and courses are accessible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week…Mentors will respond to students postings within a 48 hour time period, and CompuHigh courses are project-based; not test- based.” Clonlara School’s “CompuHigh has provided online accredited high school courses for Clonlara School since 1994.”

Clonlara also has a Temporary Enrollment Program, when for any variety of reasons, a student may need to earn one or more credits to complete a grade or to graduate from their conventional school. “School counselors often recommend Clonlara's Temporary Enrollment Program” because it is thorough and accredited. Clonlara’s staff “works cooperatively with the student's own school personnel. They help document and verify the student's work, making credit acceptance a matter of course. Upon successful completion of the Temporary Enrollment Program, students receive an official Clonlara transcript listing courses completed, dates, and grade earned.”

On their website, Clonlara lists a large number of colleges and universities where Clonlara students have been accepted.
