Classes

Classes for homeschoolers are a way to bring our children together for extra learning opportunities. Please share with me reviews of classes you’ve taken and what you would recommend.

Please Share!

*Updated April 2015*

Please help me keep this list updated. If you would like to share information about a class, email me at prescotthshub@gmail.com. Please indicate:

  1. Title of Class/Type of Class
  2. Type of enrollment: Open for anyone, Capped enrollment of X number students, By invitation only (please include contact information)
  3. Date of class and duration
  4. Cost

There is power in numbers. If there is a class that doesn’t fit your schedule or budget but you would like your child to participate in the class, please post a comment and I’ll share a post about it, blasting it to all the other homeschoolers who follow this page. If others are interested then you can approach the teacher/mentor/coach with a proposal for a time and/or discount (since you’re drumming up business for them).

As I update this page, you can refer to this incredible source:

Classes in the Prescott Area*

*Disclaimer: I haven’t double-checked the classes to see if they are adapted for youth and kids. Unless indicated, make sure to find out if the class will work for your family. And please let me know if I should remove a class offering from the list.
