  • Is The Learner's Collective a co-op?
    No, we are not a co-op. While many families use co-ops for enrichment and social activities, they often offer a la carte options and allow students to pick and choose areas and courses of interest. A homeschool hybrid program is academically-focused and sees its students splitting time between formal classes in a brick-and-mortar setting and continuing their learning at home.
  • What is The Learner's Collective?
    The Learner's Collective is a homeschool hybrid program that focuses on the whole learner. We meet three days a week and focus on academics, critical thinking and problem solving, and developing the agency and resilience required to succeed in the world outside of school. We employ the use of e-learning, self-directed learning, and project-based learning to meet these goals. To learn more about our methods, check out the About page.
  • Do you accept students with learning differences or special needs?
    While we are not trained or equipped to serve learners with profound physical or intellectual differences, we strive to serve all families who believe this model would be a great fit for their learners. If you have any questions regarding your learners readiness to join this type of program, please contact us so we can begin a discussion.
  • How much is tuition?
    Tuition for the 2023-2024 school year is $500 per month, per student.
  • What ages do you serve?
    For the 2023-2024 school year, we will accept rising sixth graders through rising twelfth graders. ​ We hope to expand to accept younger students in the future.
  • What is a homeschool hybrid program?
    A homeschool hybrid is a blended learning environment in which students spend up to 60% of their school week in a brick-and-mortar school engaged in formal classes. The Learner's Collective will meet Monday - Wednesday in person, and students will spend Thursday and Friday either learning at home, or engaged in apprenticeships, dual enrollment, enrichment activities, or continuing to work on quests. ​ Students will register as homeschoolers by filling out a Declaration of Intent. That form can be found here.
  • Are you accredited? How will our learner get a transcript?
    While we are not yet accredited, we plan to begin the process with the Georgia Accrediting Commission as soon as possible. Homeschool parents are responsible for the creation of their student's transcripts which you can read more about here. The Learner's Collective will offer ongoing parent meetings on a variety of topics, including transcript creation, dual enrollment, and navigating college applications as homeschoolers.
  • Do you follow the public school calendar?
    No. Our school year is organized in 4-6 week sprints with a week off in between each one. There are longer breaks at holidays and over the summer. For Fall 2023, we will begin on August 7th. ​
  • How do you measure learner progress if there are no grades?
    Our learners use a badge system to track the new knowledge, skills, and competencies they acquire during a school year. They will engage in check-ins and goal-setting sessions with their guides and teammates to make sure they're staying on track. They will keep and add to portfolios of their best work as the year progresses. Parents are also invited to track progress via the e-Learning platforms our learners use. ​While guides will not grade student's work, they will provide feedback as milestones are reached and new badges are awarded. At the end of every spirit, learners host a showcase of the work they have done and will invite friends, families, and professionals from the community to provide feedback on the work they've done. ​ We will never "teach to the test," but learners will participate in standardized testing at the end of each school year. This is done to establish benchmarks and measure progress. ​ ​
