Hybrid Afternoon Classes
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.
Quests are Monday, Wednesday, Fridays between 1:00-3:00 p.m. Students are also welcome to join for lunch and recess starting at 12:00 with advance notice.

This quest takes the Acton Academy Twin Falls (AATF) heroes through John Campbell's Hero's Journey framework in a way that is hard to surpass.

The lives to be learned from include:
