What does your academic calendar look like?
We offer a traditional calendar commencing near the beginning of September and ending near the beginning of June. Please see our school calendar here.
A One-Room Schoolhouse does not require families to sign a statement of faith. We use a Bible-based, non-denominational Christian curriculum. Matters of doctrine are not taught at
The Good and the Beautiful curriculum has been chosen for a number of reasons:
i. Open and Go: allows the student to work at home and at A One-Room Schoolhouse with smooth transitions from one setting to the other.
ii. Non-denominational Christian worldview: allows students from a variety of backgrounds to study together and to find common ground in faith and learning.
iii. Academically rigorous: engages students in a comprehensive, wholesome, and attractive learning journey.
iv. Cost: comes at a reasonable price when compared to other programs.
v. Flexibility: affords student-level placement that can meet each child, in each subject, at their individual skill level.
vi. Method: deepens understanding through mastery learning and spiral review. Teaching methods are varied between direct, guided, experiential, and discovery as best suits the learner and subject matter.
vii. Increasing independence: matures student learning as they gain ownership of their education and progress through the levels into increasingly more self-directed learning.
Yes, please see the handbook for more information on our dress and grooming standards. The most important thing to remember is to dress for the weather. We are outside rain, snow, or shine. Come prepared to enjoy time outside.
A major goal of A One Room Schoolhouse is to provide affordable homeschool support. Our tuition schedule can be viewed here.
A One-Room Schoolhouse is a home school support group providing a hybrid educational option to homeschool students. We are a non-profit organization that operates under these laws at both the state and federal level.
A One-Room Schoolhouse can help guide you through the homeschool registration process. We do not offer legal advice of any kind. You can find more information on the guidance we provide here.
One way to keep tuition prices low is through volunteerism. The parent’s volunteer commitment can be found here.
Three ways! If you have time to work on a project at home or help with projects at the Schoolhouse during your off-hours, we might have a way for you to meet your required volunteer hours! Another way is to divide your volunteer hours between other family members like grandma and grandpa! Finally, if these are not an option, you can buy out 2 days of your volunteer time at $100 per day. You can choose what works for you.
Not at this time, although our educational program does provide diverse instruction in art (execution and appreciation), music appreciation, nature studies, and handicrafts.
A One-Room Schoolhouse is not equipped to provide a high-quality education for those with profound disabilities. We would be happy to consult with you and provide resources in your educational journey with a special needs student. If a disability is mild, A One-Room Schoolhouse may be able to accommodate your student’s needs. Please see our handbook for more information. Each student will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Students with a history of severe behavior problems will not be allowed to study with us.
