Homeschooling Program

Exciting News!
Homeschool Extension: A Taste of Montessori 

 

We are excited to launch our homeschool extension program! Maria Montessori observed and advised on the importance of following the child and providing each individual with the environment and foundation necessary for success. In today’s world, this can take many forms. We believe that the authentic Montessori approach offered by ArborCreek Montessori Academy must be accessible to more families, including those who choose to homeschool. Adolescents are at a prime age for social learning, joining together for group projects, creating democratic classroom environments, and gaining regular practice in collaborative learning and problem-solving. We see a natural complement between Montessori and a homeschool curriculum that focuses on life skills, holistic learning, and child-centered education. We want to partner with you and offer an experience that will be rewarding for your student’s educational and personal developmental journey.

Middle School (Grades 7-8):

Our Middle School brings together a challenging curriculum covering all core subjects in addition to building life skills and social and emotional learning. In our homeschool extension program, Mrs. Katrina leads group lessons in Natural World (physical sciences, research projects, experimentation and exploration) and Social World (history, civics, cultural studies, and social sciences). These lessons bring to life a practical implementation of these subjects to better understand our world and our role in society. Lessons cover and are aligned with TEKS and Next Generation Science Standards. 

 

Upper Elementary (Grades 4-6):

In a mixed-age active learning classroom, students engage in group lessons in all areas of academics and in psychological and emotional development. Students are invited to explore all facets of education through classroom lessons as well as taking advantage of our curated library collection, our outdoor learning space, fine arts classes, and more. Whether joining for only a few hours or for the full-day options, your student is sure to enjoy learning with peers and exploring the hands-on materials offered in our beautiful upper elementary environment!
