Questions You May Have on Illinois Home Schooling (PDF)

There is currently a waitlist for the full-time classroom program (M/Tu/Th/F  9 am - 3 pm) for the 2020-2021 school year.  This offering is most suitable for parents who want the homeschool experience for their child(ren) but are unable to be full-time homeschool teachers themselves.  The cost is $125.00/week.


Please use the Google Form to request a spot on the 2020-2021 school year waitlist for your child.  The deposit is $150.00. PayPal, Venmo, check, and cash are all accepted as payment.

Part-time spaces are always an option; simply contact us!  We are also happy to talk about bartering possibilities.

Please know that you and your child do not need to be a part of our full-time classroom program to be part of our larger group! We offer group field trip opportunities to places like the Carbondale Fire Station and the St. Louis Aquarium, plus special classes (Structured Word Inquiry [SWI] and Science Club) and a free Kids Book Share weekly social time; these are open to all of the homeschoolers in our community.  


Homeschool consulting servies are also available, if you simply need some support for your own family's curriculum planning.

You may also use this form to express an interest in our Parent Book Group.  We have moved to meeting via Zoom, and are currently on The Conscious Parent: Transforming Ourselves, Empowering Our Children by Dr. Shefali Tsabary.  


Please also join us at the Carbondale Public Library for Homeschool Without Borders.  This relaxed come-and-chat group is open to every current, past, and prospective homeschooling parent.  We meet on the first Tuesday of each month (excepting January and July) from 5:30 - 6:30 pm.   

Are you following up on a conversation with Renee about coming to the classroom as a special guest?  Please let us know your availability, as well as any fees, and we will do our very best to schedule you as soon as possible.  

Thanks for your interest!  We will be in touch with you soon!
