The Homeschool Academy

Hello, and thank you for inquiring to The Homeschool Academy.

We just finished our third year at THSA. The calendar for our school will continue to be broken into three sessions: Fall, Winter, and Spring.

We are a First through Eighth grade program, (6 to 14 year olds) and have been very much, a one-room style schoolhouse. In some ways, we still are. As we have grown, we now divide our sessions into age groups, 1,2 and 3,4,5 and 6,7,8. (We are exploring the possibility of offering small group Kindergarten Sessions, for two half-days a week, during 2019-2020.)

We offer sessions five days a week. Our hours are 9:30am till 3:30pm daily. On Field Days, we usually start earlier. We offer sessions in science, art, environment education field events weekly, theatre, music, choir, fitness sessions, culinary arts, a Winter multi-week ski/snowboard program at Schweitzer, and many other options. As for the curriculum, all the environmental education activities, science sessions, I have authored these and now co-author with other individuals. I am able to contract individuals to instruct the finer arts.

Our LPOSD#84, Public School, is set up in multi-week sessions: Fall is 14 weeks, Winter is 12 weeks, and Spring is 9 weeks. We follow the LPOSD Calendar and Operations Schedule. You can register at the District Office. There is no cost to attend the school. You can select whatever day during the week that you would like to attend. Students in THSA are supposed to attend at least one day, per week. We are considered a part-time supplemental services program, for homeschool families in Bonner County. No student may attend full-time.

I meet in person with all new-interested families, before enrollment. So maybe sometime soon, we could sit down and discuss what is offered through our programs at THSA. We can decide if this is what you are looking for, to support your existing homeschooling program.

In 2018-2019, we moved into our very own schoolhouse. We run multiple sessions simultaneously daily; students can rotate through three sessions per day on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. Fridays are Field Events or Special Presentations throughout the year.

Please email me, if you would like to discuss further.
