Exploration – Home School: New Studio Classes & Tutoring

Studio classes are offered to home study learners exclusively to explore a variety of academic topics! We will start each 6-week session with a thematic topic and guide the learners to explore multiple aspects of it. This will include a fun activity, a group discussion, and individual guidance from the Educational Facilitator (EF). During each session, EFs will provide materials, mini-lessons, activities, guidance, and expertise on an as-needed basis to support each learner with their thematic project. Parents will be updated on how they can support at home, if needed. By the end of each session, the learners who engage with the available resources will provide evidence of their growth that is related to an authentic experience!

Cost: Studio Class prices have been discounted to only $75 each per 6-week session.

Need Tutoring Help?

Sign up for any 5th-8th grade tutoring session and work one-on-one or in a small group with a qualified, credentialed teacher. This is a great way to complete work samples to turn into your EF at your monthly Learning Period (LP) meetings. Use your school stipend to cover the individual tutor sessions at only $13 for 1 ½ hours each or sign up for all five sessions for $65. Space is limited, so sign up now to reserve your spot. Be sure to bring all needed supplies and homework with you!

Studio classes are offered every Wednesday from 10-11:30 a.m. on the following 6-week session schedule:

Session #5: May 1 – June 5

TUTORING: June 12

All sessions include an optional Lunch Alive! period from 11:30 a.m.-12 p.m.

To sign up, submit your VCI order request form to your EF and indicate the Session # and/ or Tutoring dates.

Exploration – Home School: Blended Classes

Mix and Match! Sign up for both the Studio Experience and/or blended classes. Blended classes are individual, 30-minute sessions that are not designed as a “drop-off” day. Classes are held in on-campus classrooms by grade level and are integrated with both on-campus and home-study learners. This gives learners the opportunity to gradually build stronger social skills as they interact with their peers during short collaborative sessions.

Classes are only $45 each per 9-week rotation schedule:

Ends JUNE 14th

Ask your EF for specific dates/times offered by grade level class, then submit your request for any of the following blended class options:

  • Musical Theater
  • American Sign Language (ASL)
  • Art
  • P.E.
  • Exploratorium (Computers)
  • Makery (Woodshop)

Exploration – Home School: Rockin’ Jump
