Who is Scott Clifton?
Home School Partners instructor Scott Clifton has been married for 27 years to his wife Julie and has three sons and three daughters at home, and one married college graduate. The 2018-2019 year will mark his seventeenth year of offering home school enrichment classes for high schoolers, and he and Julie have home schooled their own children since 1994.
In high school, Scott was a member of the National Honor Society, and he received a full, four-year academic scholarship to the University of Central Florida, earning his B. A. in 1991.
Scott began his career writing and editing for a family newspaper and a state banking association. He then taught Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1, Algebra 2, and English in the public and private school systems. His additional teaching experience includes private tutoring of students in mathematics, English, composition, and SAT Prep.
As a young man, Scott lived in Wake Forest and worked for two summers at Camp Rockmont in Black Mountain. In 1985, as a teenager, he was captured by the Russians and exiled to the sweltering heat of Central Florida. In May 2007, however, he managed to escape in a hot air balloon with his family to western North Carolina. (Just a little joke there. It was actually a U-Haul truck.)
