Life Rediscovered is a vibrant community of homeschoolers.
Our day program offers structure and social opportunities that so many homeschoolers crave. We take the best of a traditional school environment, combine it with all the strengths of homeschooling, and create magic.
At Life Rediscovered, students cycle through a healthy mix of academics, social activities, and life skills. Teachers and staff are there to support students as needed, working individually with each student to expand on what they are learning at home, or offering small group lessons to deepen their understanding of certain concepts. Students are combined into two mixed-age groups, allowing them the valuable opportunity to learn together and support their peers.
By joining Life Rediscovered, you are not only investing into your child’s education- you are also joining a vibrant community of like-minded families who all believe in the same core values of faith, freedom, learning, and community.
We are a conservative group, and believe in traditional values, love of family, love of community, and love of country. We are here to cultivate a happy, non-partisan, secular, politics-free learning environment, where kids can be kids.
During their time with us, students are empowered to take charge of their learning experience while diving deep into their interests. We believe that teaching our students how to learn is most important and will enable them to access information and resources throughout their lives.
What Do We Learn?
Subjects explored in our program include: mathematics, english language arts, science, geography, history, botany, and nature studies. Miscellaneous subjects taught may be skills such as: sowing, cloth washing, mapping, logic, chess, etc.
We have two semesters per year (September-December and January-June). Enrollment is by semester, to allow our students the time and space needed to establish meaningful social connections and friendships.
STARS GROUP PROGRAM • AGES 3-6
Our Stars Group Program provides our youngest homeschoolers with an opportunity to learn, foster independence, and form friendships with other homeschoolers, while also giving caregivers the opportunity to connect in the through teacher-led games, activities, and outdoor exploration. We believe that parent involvement at a young age and parents’ connections to the local homeschool community is one of the driving factors behind long-term homeschool success. We provide a parent room on-site, so that parents can connect, while staying directly involved in their child's experience.
STRIPES GROUP PROGRAM • AGES 7-13
The Stripes Group Program is a day program for older homeschoolers. Students participate in a morning community circle and academics in which we assist them with work sent in from home. After academics, we complete our Unit Studies (entrepreneurship, community service, STEM, nature studies), and then head outside. This program is a combination of self-directed learning, project based learning, teacher-directed unit studies, with afternoons having a heavy emphasis on free play, creativity, and clubs planned by the students. We are a limited-screens program (allowed only for academics), because we believe that kids should have the chance to be kids, off of their devices. Parents are expected to volunteer 3 hours per semester.
TEEN LEADERSHIP PROGRAM • AGES 14-17
Teens will gain leadership skills, confidence, and organizational skills while assisting the Stars and Stripes groups, under the direct supervision of a senior staff member. Teens will learn about child development, effectively leading a group, assist in planning and implementing activities, and contribute to a positive learning environment by leading trust and team building activities. Teens will process their experience with the help of our Leadership Workbook, small homework assignments and reflections, and regular meetings with their mentor. Graduates of the program will receive a certificate of completion and a letter of recommendation. Only one spot available per room. Please inquire to apply.
