Last week we announced our new Online Homeschool Classes that will start in September for those families looking for alternatives to in-person school. These online classrooms will have an instructor to student ratio of 10:1 or less so that each student will receive appropriate attention and opportunities. The curriculum will cover STEM concepts (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) as well as Essential Learning Skills such as project management and assessing bias in media, all while staying true to our interactive storytelling roots.
Due to the surge of demand for these types of programs, we are also offering an Online Afterschool Program for our enrolled homeschooled students as well as students with other learning options. This will allow students more social interaction with their friends from camp, school, or their community and to make new friends with similar interests. Participants will become the heroes of their own tales, exploring new and magical virtual worlds while working together with the other heroes to save the day every afternoon.
Our Online Afterschool Program touches on education and provides ample opportunity for practicing essential learning skills but with more emphasis on story, adventure, and camaraderie than education.
On August 26th we will be hosting a free trial day of both the Online Homeschool Class and the Online Afterschool Program. If you wish to register for this event, please fill out the survey.
The schedule for both of these programs is below. There are also an additional 30 minutes of online teacher office time (for our homeschool students to get additional help on lessons) every day between the STEM class and the Essential Learning Skills class. We have provided start times for other time zones to accommodate those students attending from outside of the east coast.
