COVID-19 turned education on its head. If you now find yourself questioning traditional schooling for your child you are not alone. If you or your child is not adjusting to the “new norm” of school that the pandemic has thrust upon everyone, you should know there are other options.
In the fall of 2022, Studyville will extend its offerings to include Microschools, a personalized education that caters to a child’s unique needs.
What is a Microschool?
Microschools grew in popularity during the quarantine as parents rushed to find teachers who could homeschool their kids. Microschools are small, private institutions with certified teachers who work in small groups or one-on-one with students to personalize education. Think of it as someone else (a certified educator) teaching your child with the freedom of homeschool but in a really cool learning environment (Studyville!) and not your kitchen table. It’s one-room school house meets old-school governess but in a modern, tech-savvy environment.
What is the curriculum?
Studyville’s curriculum will adhere to all state and federal education standards and testing. Students will have a transcript and grading standards, and may work ahead of grade level as advised by their educator.
What are the hours/obligation?
It is expected that students will receive at least 15 hours of direct instruction a week. Microschooling is incredibly efficient. Small ratios and no class changes or announcements remove all the unnecessary time fillers that come with traditional schooling.
Is there homework?
Not if you don’t want it, there’s not.
What subjects are taught?
All core subjects inducing math, language, science, and history for all grade levels. Some electives are included, and anything necessary to meet state and federal requirements.
Who is the ideal candidate for Microschooling?
Microschooling is perfect for:
- Anyone who feels school is “not for them” or is frustrated by the rigidity of the one-size-fits-all traditional school
- Young athletes training for the collegiate and professional world
- Young musicians training for professional arts
- Anyone looking for flexibility in education
- Anyone frustrated by pandemic mandates
- Families who want flexibility to travel or explore life outside of the typical, rigid school year
Students are already benefitting from the newfound flexibility Studyville’s private education offers.
“The transition from a traditional educational setting to a private education experience was not undertaken lightly by our family. To be honest, we were scared. We knew of no other family engaging in this form of education. It was new. It was different. Thankfully, we did not have to undertake this process alone: Studyville worked with us to find the best educators, establish the appropriate schedule, and build a personalized curriculum.
While I, as a parent, could laud Studyville for their dedicated work and attention, it is our son that provides the greatest testimony. At least once a week, he says, “Thank you for finding Studyville.” He is excited to learn again. He wants to go to “school” — not for lunch, not for recess — but to learn. Learning now has purpose and application beyond a traditional exam. Our educators have reminded our son about the joy of learning. We gave up traditional school to gain a true education.”
