“ The emotional connection to Oak Meadow for our son has been amazing to witness. We have tried other curricula but we just keep coming back to Oak Meadow. I like that it is gentle and is a starting point for more learning to happen naturally. We usually finish the weekly lesson early and then move on to whatever my son wants to do, experience, or learn! ”- Oak Meadow Parent
“ I homeschooled my two daughters using Oak Meadow. One has completed her masters degree in architecture. The creativity she developed while using Oak Meadow sparked inspiration that she carries to this day. Thanks Oak Meadow! ”- Oak Meadow Parent
“ Every year, we find more and more good things to say about the whole Oak Meadow program to the homeschooling community around where we live. We tell everyone who is interested in homeschooling about our experience with Oak Meadow. I can’t thank you enough for all that you do! ”- Oak Meadow Parent
Our curriculum is based on rigorous academic standards that have been thoughtfully integrated with a personalized, student-centered education. Learning objectives offer guideposts for the development of core competencies, and students are given a variety of ways to demonstrate their mastery of skills and knowledge. Our accredited distance learning school is led by experienced teachers who provide attentive, one-to-one support.
We believe it is essential to give children opportunities to engage not only their heads, but their hands and hearts as well. Oak Meadow students develop a strong intellect through challenging coursework and analytical thinking. They engage in experiential explorations that combine core knowledge, creative problem solving, and artistic skills. They also reflect on their learning, build communication skills, and develop a sense of empathy, social responsibility, and Earth stewardship.
Subjects and skills are introduced in a carefully planned sequence that respects the unique developmental needs of children. In the early grades, students engage in an active exploration of the world with wonder and curiosity. In the middle grades, students explore human accomplishments, conflicts, and relationships in the larger world. In high school, students can apply their knowledge and skills to make a difference in the world.
Students learn in different ways and homeschool for different reasons, so flexibility is written into our curriculum to give students the freedom to learn in the way that works best for them. Varied activities provide options for learning and encourage students to connect their learning with their interests. Learning doesn’t get in the way of life—it enhances it.
