2019-2020 Home School Academy.png



Lessons tailored to grades 1st-5th*

We invite all Young Explorers (Ages 6-8) and Young Creators (Ages 9-12) to take part in our Science Academy.  Now with two age groups, each 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)

9:00 am-1:00 pm

Cost per session:
9:00 am - 1:00 pm $30 members / $35 nonmembers
Young Explorers: Ages 6 - 8
Young Creators: Ages 9 - 12


Students will need to bring their own lunch
