Our homeschool enrichment program uses unit studies and block-style scheduling. Our teaching style is process not product oriented. We do not test or grade. We encourage peer support and offer positive motivation. Our children learn to love learning.
The classes offered in the morning are Art, Science, Language Arts/Literature and Focus Studies, which is a Mindful approach to Social-Emotional topics, History, STEM, and Social Studies. Parents with children in K-5th grade would only need to supplement writing, spelling/phonics, and some additional math at home on their child’s level.
Each subject is explored for the 2 hour class period for 4 weeks within the unit. In the middle of each class, the group will go outside for Nature Observation or a brain break. There are 16 unit weeks and one week before and after each unit week for a total of 18 classes.
Full classes are taught outside when conditions permit. Classes do not assign homework. Children are grouped in multi-graded sections. Children will keep a master record of all their work that they get to take home at the end of the year. Instructors will email weekly class summaries that explain what your child learned — these summaries are great resources to document your homeschooling progress.
Units covered in full-day programs including morning and afternoon enrichment drive a full curriculum for the year for middle school learners.
