The Journey begins!
The early ages of homeschooling are so delightful! God has created children to naturally want to explore and discover everything around them – that’s one reason school is so exciting! At ROCK Academy, our Exploratory Classes are designed specially to suit the needs of children 3-year-old through 2nd grade!
All Explorer Classes have a similar literature-based, unit-study format. A story is read each week which relates to the history, geography, science, or character themes older classes are studying. Classroom activities provide hands-on exploration and re-enforcement of themes found in each story.
Pack your bags - we're going on a trip! A trip around the world visiting each continent. Stories from around the globe will help children discover that no matter where we live, we actually have a lot in common. As children tour around the world, they will also learn about who (or what) might live there as they learn about habitats and biomes of each continent and region.
S.T.E.M. is FUN. Because the reading levels can be challenging for elementary students, and because our STEM program was so successful this past year, we are transitioning to a new dynamic Science program for elementary students with the continuation and focus of STEM at ROCK Academy. Students will simply come to ROCK Academy and have fun with hands-on Science labs, demonstrations, and experiments; as well as opportunities in Technology, Engineering, and Math activities – with no homework. This also supports the idea of simplifying homeschooling.
But That's Not All - Besides reading stories about people from all over the world and playing with some ooey-gooey experiments, it’s hard to imagine that there is more. Every week your kids will get to do the things that homeschooling Moms love – play with other kids! Explorer classes also include Gym Class every week, while Art and Music alternate every-other-week.
Being a homeschool kid doesn't get any better.
