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.

Distance learning options during the summer include 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.  

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 Homeschool Without Borders, hosted by the Carbondale Public Library on Zoom.  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.


Homeschool consulting services are also available, if you simply need some support for your own family's curriculum planning. The Phone Consultation Package includes two hour-long phone calls for $50.00.  The School Year Curriculum Package with a full curriculum plan, personalized recommendations for your child, lists of resources for each academic subject, two phone calls, and unlimited email support during the year is $275.00.
