Hybrid Afternoon Classes

FACT...

Having fun and being excited about what one is learning helps the brain learn and remember far better than boring "have to" type learning. Plus, it keeps a student coming back for more. 

In order to allow more students to experience the joy of learning, we're now offering hands-on quests (classes) to homeschoolers or other families who are available at the offered times.
