We believe every school experience is unique, and that every student deserves a yearbook that memorializes their school experience.

Since launching in 2012, Picaboo Yearbooks has been revolutionizing the yearbook industry by offering schools of all sizes no minimum order requirements, no deadlines and free personalized pages for every student.

“We believe every school experience is unique, and that every student deserves a yearbook that memorializes their school experience,” said Picaboo Yearbooks President, Bryan Payne. “With this as our mission, we’ve opened the door for homeschools of all sizes – from single learners to larger cooperative groups – to have the same yearbook experience currently enjoyed by conventional schools. We are honored to win the Blue Ribbon Award for Favorite Parent Resource because it’s a testament to what we’ve set out to accomplish.”

“At the end of each year, the Schoolhouse Review Crew votes on our favorite companies. Picaboo Yearbooks won our Blue Ribbon Award for Favorite Parent Resource,” said Crew Review Director, Kate Kessler. “Our Crew team had such fun creating personal yearbooks. The process was simple and the choices were astonishing. The high quality finished products were well-made, affordable, and beautiful.”

With Picaboo Yearbooks, homeschool students can tell their personal homeschool story through the personalized pages of their very own one-of-a-kind yearbook. And with no minimum order, homeschools have the opportunity to order as few or as many as they need. Picaboo Yearbooks’ easy to use web-based app is also an ideal opportunity to teach homeschooled children about journalism, design, and teamwork.

“When homeschooled students create their yearbooks, they’re learning key photography, design and journalism skills,” continued Payne. “And, since the entire creation process is done through our web app, groups of students can work collaboratively – even when they aren’t in the same room, or working at the same time. This makes the process fun, memorable, rewarding and educational, too. And with collaboratively-created yearbooks, each student can personalize his or her own cover and inside pages.”

Picaboo Yearbooks continues to revolutionize the yearbook industry with its no-cost eYearbook. Homeschool students can enjoyably create a complete eYearbook, which can be which can be viewed on PCs, laptops, tablets and smartphones.
