What we offer . . .
Expert Instruction That Promotes Life-Long Learning
Our middle school language arts classes give students a thorough understanding of the underlying building blocks and structure of our language so they can become skilled communicators. Mastering the fundamental elements of language and how they fit together opens students up to a world of effective communication, self-expression, and a greater appreciation for writing and reading. In our high school English classes, students make use of exceptional contemporary and classic literature to expand their academic knowledge and critical thinking skills; enrich their vocabulary; explore the experiences, emotions, and opinions of others; learn about places, situations, and eras they can’t experience in their own lives; examine their own views; build their capacity for empathy; fuel their sense of adventure and creativity; and encounter and ponder universal themes and truths.
Our live, online classroom environment allows our instructors to give your children the time and attention that they need in order to succeed. We believe in keeping class numbers low to maximize each child’s learning potential. Our focus is on mastery of concepts, deep connections to literature, and writing, and our instructors go out of their way to help your child excel.
Core and Elective Classes
Select from a full range of core literature and composition classes for middle-school and high-school students as well as a wide variety of fun and enriching electives including such student favorites as Adventures in Podcasting, Mythology, Books to Film, Model United Nations, and many more. All classes are taught by seasoned instructors who are subject-matter experts and are dedicated to your child’s academic and personal growth.
What parents and students say . . .
I just wanted to thank you for your excellent English classes this past year. I can’t tell you how impressed I was by the curriculum and instruction. Each of your assignments is an excellent learning tool.
I am confident [my son] learned a lot and will be a better writer in 9th grade next year. I am certain he will use all of the skills he learned in both Writers Boot Camp and English Literature 1 with Mrs. Schroder. I have already been recommending your courses to friends interested in homeschooling next year.
― Stephanie, grade 9 parent
Just had to share with you the sweetest conversation I had with [my son] this afternoon. He was telling me how much he admires you and enjoys learning from you… As a parent, I really appreciate that he has such wonderful adult role models to look up to, such as you!
― Angele, grade 9 parent
Just wanted to say once again how much your wisdom and classes have meant to me. I’m so grateful that I had the opportunity of being in your classes, as you’ve been an amazing teacher for all of these years.

In addition to being really educational, teaching us some psychological…and also some historical facts, your classes were always fun…You have a real passion for what you teach, and it shows…You’ve always just been a great person, always understanding and helpful and passionate about not just the material, but that we enjoy it and learn from it, too. You’ve been the best teacher, and you’re the kind of teacher I aspire to be.
