Options

We aim to offer a variety of options so that families can pick what works for them. We believe that everyone has discovered that new schedules, learning modes, and learning locations are sometimes desirable.

We want to support families as they create programs and schedule that are “just right” for their students.

BASE CORE PROGRAM

For the 2022 – 2023 School Year we are offering this program for grades 5 – 12, (Middle and High School)

Our “Base Core Program” is 4/5 mornings per week and students can participate either virtually or in-person, depending on the options chosen upon enrollment. The morning core program covers the subjects of math, science, history, social studies, english language arts. This program is primarily teacher-led, and utilizes a blend of teacher instruction, small group discussion, partner work, and on-line learning tools. Teachers offer lessons in real-time, and assign projects and independent work that students complete off-line. Students complete work and are graded and report cards and transcripts are provided (if that option is chosen upon enrollment, homeschoolers can opt out of the grading/recordkeeping and continue to report to their districts as homeschoolers.

IN-PERSON FULL-TIME

For the 2022 – 2023 School Year we are offering this program for grades 5 – 12, (Middle and High School)

We combine the “Base Core Program” with in-person, full-day attendance to provide a traditional full-time, 4-day per week daily attendance option. Friday is a virtual day, with organized online meetings and off-line independent activities.

Space is limited in this portion of the program, and groups will remain small to ensure safety of all.

IN-PERSON PART-TIME

We combine the “Base Core Program” with in-person, morning or full-day attendance 2 or 3 days per week, depending on choices upon enrollment. You may choose this option for mornings only (until 12;15PM), or full day, (until 3:10).

VERY IMPORTANT! When students are not attending in-person, they are participating in the “Base Core Program” remotely from home. Attendance is expected every morning, whether students are learning from home on in school.

You may choose to attend in-person and participate in the program in school on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday (3 days), or Tuesday and Thursday (2 days). Space is limited in the part-time program and preference given to families who commit to the entire school year.

HOMESCHOOL VIRTUAL SCHOOL

We invite homeschoolers to participate in the “Base Core Program” 4 or 5 mornings per week.

These classes are offered via video and some will happen in real-time. Students will be expected to complete some work in the afternoons, off-line. This covers all of the core subjects: English, Science, Social Studies, History, English. Classes are teacher-led, and assignments are given for students to complete. Teachers are available for additional support during office hours or by appointment. This option provides a stable community of live peers, supported by experienced and enthusiastic teachers and mentors.

AFTERNOONS IN-PERSON EXPERIENCE

This program is available as space permits. This is designed for students ages 8 and up.

A variety of learning experiences take place in the afternoons. Teacher-led classes are offered, with guest teachers often in residence to share special skills. Learning centers or stations are also available for students to work with at their own pace and in the order they choose. Outside online classes are another option for afternoon learning. Afternoons are also ideal for student-led passion projects, for collaborative work and for small group experiences. Sometimes labs, breakout rooms, scavenger hunts, and media challenges are offered.

Students may choose to attend afternoons two days per week (Tuesday and Thursday) or three days per week (Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday), or four days per week (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday). This program runs from 12:30 – 3:10.
