OUR PROGRAMS & SERVICES

RESOURCES

We understand that choosing an alternative pathway for education has its challenges. Where do you start? What are my options? What about socialization? These are some of the questions you may have and we are here to help in answering them!

 

You can schedule a free consultation or invest in a coaching session to get your educational plans in motion. We are often out in the community offering classes and sharing information about the many spaces and resources available to you! Check out our resource lists here.

EDUCATION

Topic specific classes are offered through the Hybrid Learning Center for children to help pique interests in new hobbies and encourage the trying of new things.

In addition to classes we offer parent workshops, homeschool coaching, and education-based consultations for those interested in creating education spaces of their own.

ENRICHMENT

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.

Our HYPE Clubs for students provide opportunities for socialization and the building of strong friendships. We also provide many more opportunities to connect for socialization outside of the classroom.
