Homeschool Days 2022

Beginning in January 2023, Homeschool Days will look different in several ways.

Three hours instead of two

  •  1 p.m. to 4 p.m. instead of 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.
  • Classes will now begin promptly at 1 p.m. so please make plans to arrive no later than 12:45 p.m.
  • A 15-minute break with snack time will be included. Please alert of us any allergies that your child has in advance.

Three different 45-minute classes and activities, instead of one

  •  Five subject areas – History, Science, Music and Art, Wildlife, and Agriculture (will be offered on a regular rotation)
  • All grades will now experience all subjects

Three grade groups instead of four:

  • Grades 1-4    (Elementary)
  • Grades 5-8    (Middle School)
  • Grades 9-12  (High School)

While we have separated grades into three groups, you know your child best. It is always at the parent’s discretion to decide which grade group is most appropriate for their child, within reason. If you have questions, please ask!

Slight increase in cost

  • $6 per student
  • $15.95 per nonmember
