Thanks to the VELA Education Fund “Meet the Moment” 2021 grant for supporting us
so we can offer this expanded menu of services.
Would you like to homeschool, but aren’t sure where to begin?
Do you think homeschooling might be for your family, but need help deciding on curriculum?
Do you worry that your homeschooled student doesn’t see other kids often enough?
Do you work and want to homeschool, but can’t be home with your student all the time?
Do you need support for you as a parent so you can support your learner in their academic growth during virtual learning?
The Birch School staff has lots of experience with homeschoolers and can assist you with all aspects of your homeschool journey. We specialize in helping families who are new to homeschooling, or who are just beginning to consider an alternative learning situation for their students.
We can also help veteran homeschoolers liven up their yearly plans with new curriculum ideas, parent seminars on homeschooling issues and techniques, and social opportunities for students.
Allow us to help your family develop a customized educational program that meets your child’s learning style, educational needs, and learning level. We can help develop the right combination for your child by partnering student home learning with classes at our center. In our classes students have opportunities to develop skills of group work, such as communication and collaboration. Specific subject areas can be targeted and supported by class participation.
Curriculum resources, planning, suggestions are available. Certified teachers are on hand for consultation and evaluation. Class participation is subject to availability.
Our experienced educators and certified teachers will provide assistance with required homeschool paperwork.
We can schedule an individual consultation to help plan your homeschool journey. The first consultation is 90 minutes and costs $75. You will leave with resources to investigate, many questions answered, and with a renewed confidence that you are supported, and you will have confidence in your homeschooling plan. Subsequent consultation hours cost $50 per additional hour.
Our homeschool memberships provide members with an initial planning meeting, followed by unlimited personal consultations to help guide and support families as they homeschool together.
Membership also offers access to some of the resources available at The Birch School. Inquire for more information, but there is a general description below. Memberships are available by the school year or by half the school year.
The resource center houses multiple curriculum catalogs, sample curriculum resources that allow you to try before you buy, on-line resources, curriculum and lessons for review, homeschool philosophy resources, and homeschool to college materials. Some supplies and equipment are available to borrow for home use, such as microscopes, science kits, balance scales, educational board games, educational CDs and tapes to supplement and liven up home learning.

Specialists in Reading and Literacy, Autism, Gifted and Talented, Technology Education, History Education, Environmental Education, Elementary Education, Math and Living Math Education, Montessori Education, Music Learning, are available to our staff for consultation and advisement.
