K-5 Elementary Overview

  • K-5  Homeschool Only

    Families who choose to homeschool their children have an array of opportunities for learning.  Families can design, develop, and instruct learning based on what works best for his/her learning.  Families who homeschool students can do so based on family dynamics, principles, and beliefs.  Your child’s advisory teacher will be able to assist and guide families with as much or as little information needed.  Advisory teachers are available to support and answer questions relating to curriculum, student progress, assessment, and more. Some families choose to develop independent study courses or passion projects.  These courses allow students to work independently on assignments.  Teachers are available to answer questions and problem solve. 

     

    Students enrolled in PAIDEIA have access to their neighborhood school (if residing in the ASD attendance area).  Students are able to take up to three classes as well as participate in extracurricular activities.  

     

    Students can also use ASD-approved vendors for a variety of options.  Please see our vendor-approved list.  If a vendor is not on the list you can work with your advisory teacher for additional information.


     

    Face to Face Options

    Families who are looking for workshops to supplement learning at home may be interested in enrolling in one of our F2F options.  Space is limited and these workshops are designed to support learning at home.

    LA & Math

    Workshop

    Tuesdays & Thursdays

    9:30-2:00

    Students have the opportunity to participate in a workshop focusing on reading, writing, and math enrichment/support. Students will practice grade-level skills, engage with peers, and build a love of learning. A special emphasis is placed on cooperative learning and incorporating student interests. Teachers assess and identify student progress and adapt instruction to fit individual needs (while also partnering with parents to help them do this in their homeschooling).

    Children are provided opportunities to develop skills that are aligned with grade-appropriate standards.  No set curriculum is used as parents will be using their own selected curriculum for instruction.
