Classical Education
for the Modern Homeschooler

 

Our classes are the benchmark of our school. We provide quality classes taught by experienced teachers, and encourage a family atmosphere among the children and parents who come to our school. We believe that an excellent educational experience involves all learning styles in a community environment and that is what we provide for each student. Too often we see classes being taught only using pieces of paper; our lessons involve a full range of materials and learning resources, whether it be a video, a simulation, a discussion, an art project, an experiment, a small skit, or an oral presentation. Our classes not only stress academic knowledge, but they encourage the use of critical thinking and problem-solving skills. Love of learning is our primary goal.

Update for Class Structure in 2022

 

Welcome back!

 

Classes will be starting back up on August 9th. Deadline for class sign ups and payment will be August 4th. Tuition is also due by August 4th for enrolled families.  You can ask to be PayPal invoiced, pay in cash (dropped at Susan Bacon's home), or pay by check (made out to Susan Bacon and dropped at her home or sent by mail).

Our classes are open to those enrolled with Franklin School, and are sometimes open to those not enrolled at a higher price.  Please feel free to contact us with questions.

 

We present our classes as a combination via Zoom and in person.  We can have the best of both worlds – those traveling or still concerned about COVID can meet less frequently in person, but still have some in person socialization. This makes for a more complex schedule to follow, and we apologize for that.  We will email out a weekly schedule to make things easier for all those involved in classes.

Mask are not currently required, but may be in the future if COVID numbers continue to rise.  We will be implementing other safety precautions such as cleaning all shared equipment more regularly, keeping class size smaller, having students sit further away from each other, and meeting outdoors when the weather permits.

Hope to see you either on Zoom or in person and we are looking forwarding to working with you for another great year!

Through the text book, PowerPoint presentations, activities, projects, discussion, debate, games, and videos we will explore Economics. Using a variety of learning experiences enlivens and motivates the class, approaching learning styles such as auditory, visual, tactile, and kinesthetic.
