OUR PROGRAMS

ENRICHMENT

Topic specific workshops for both parents and children are offered to help pique interests in new hobbies and encourage the trying of  new things. Our workshops are offered by trained professionals, entrepreneurs, and passionate parents within the melanated homeschool community.

SOCIALIZATION

Our HYPE Clubs for students provide opportunities for socialization and the building of  strong friendships. Students also have end of year parties, field day, and many more opportunites to connect for socialization outside of the classroom.

 

We also offer parent outings, mom brunches, and self care activities throughout the year. Parents need to socialize too!

EDUCATION

Did someone say field trip? We are constantly looking for engaging out of the box field trips to encourage free thinking  amongst our students and parents! We visit farms, businesses, museums, and many other black owned/operated spaces to give students exposure to representation in a variety of industries.
