MIDDLE SCHOOL OFFERINGS

 

We have a number of options to choose from for any budget and any educational philosophy.  Our Middle School programs are mix and match.  Parents decide how much they would like to be involved, how structured their child's day will be, and how often their children attend classes, clubs, groups, before and after-hours programs, and more.  If that feels like too many choices, we are also here to provide guidance based on your individual goals.  See below for all of your options.

All Programs are mix-and-match to offer flexibility, convenience, value, and affordability. 

 

Option #1: Core Academics

  • Three Days per week

  • Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday

  • 9 am - 3 pm with before and after programming available

  • All days are drop-off

  • Math, Reading, Writing, Foreign Language, Art, and Science are all offered.

  • Thursdays are Outdoor Education days, spent outside all-day

  • Academically, our focus is on the love of learning through exploration and curiosity.  Individualized curricula and attention help students to move as quickly as they prefer, while also learning as deeply as their interest takes them.

Option #2: Core Academics + Co-op

  • Four or Five Days per week

  • Bundle the Core Academics work done on Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday with one of your 5 co-op choices.  See your co-op choices below.

Option #3: Cooperative Education

  • A traditional cooperative with a twist.  Before you read on, if you are unfamiliar with cooperative education or resource sharing groups, this website provides a clear explanation, along with many other helpful insights on schooling at home: What is a co-op, anyway?

  • Co-ops offer fun things that kids love to learn about: cooking, history, animal communications, gardening & agriculture, mythology, ancient civilizations, literature, and more!  These cooperatives have both onsite and drop-off options to offer a wide variety of choices for parents.

  • All ages and family sizes are welcome.

  • Students must be 11 and up for drop-off options.

  • Having parents and/or caregivers onsite keeps these options very affordable.  Drop-offs add flexibility to your schedule, but also add additional fees.
