Our Schedule and Classes

School of the Minds

Each class will have a minimum enrollment of 5 students. Should there be less students enrolled, parents can decide to make up the class price difference in order to keep the course available. Although we use Grade Levels for our subjects, we understand asynchronous learning and that each child is unique. We urge homeschool families to talk to our instructors in order to comprehend what each course requires academically and kindly place their children in their appropriate grade levels. Parents are welcome to sit in any classroom to help their child(ren) behave, read, write and/or work academically. Homeschool families can pick and choose from our class offerings. Staying for the whole day School of the Minds is in session is not necessary.

    I wish your program was on some other day. Both the Columbia Museum of Art and the State Museum hold their homeschool programs on the 2nd and 3rd Friday of each month, respectively.
