HOME SCHOOL ACADEMY
Lessons tailored to grades 1st-5th*
We invite all young explorers (ages 6-12) to take part in our Home School Science Academy. Students will participate in hands-on science lessons designed to foster a life-long love for science.
Home School Academy is a drop-off program, and as such it allows many of our home school students to interact with our educators and other students in a classroom setting. These classes are designed to engage, stimulate, encourage, and challenge young children with hands on exploration using a typical class arrangement.
Classes scheduled for the 3rd Tuesday of the month (through May)
Due to increased demand, additional classes have been opened up for select Mondays listed below. Additional dates are only available for new registrants. We are unable to switch current registrants to the additional dates.
9:00 am-1:00 pm
Cost per session:
$30 members | $35 nonmembers
Students will need to bring their own lunch
Preregistration is required: please ensure your registration forms have been submitted and tickets purchased online, via phone, or in person to secure your child's spot in the program as space is limited.
