About us...


Together, Mrs. Brandi and Mrs. Tiffany have experience in the public school, charter school, and homeschool settings. Being able to experience all three ways of learning, together they wanted to create a different approach. Our vision is to allow a more hands-on way of learning, combining the homeschooling individualized mindset with the social aspect of a classroom setting.


Students learn through doing, asking, and creating. Our wish is that through the use of STEAM- science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics- students will have a more involved approach to their learning. We wish for students to take charge of their learning journey, finding empowerment along the way.

FAQs

What about grades?

-At Journey Learning, we will not give out grades for work completed. Students are so much more than grades here! The parent, student, and teacher will work together to create end of the year goals for each child. Students will strive to meet their goals throughout the year. Progress to their goals will be communicated throughout the year, as well as any adjustments that may need to be made.

What curriculum will be used?

-Each child learns differently! Because of this, we will use several different programs and resources depending on each child's needs. If we realize a certain program or method is not working for your child, we will adjust our plan.

What is my role as a parent?

-Our academy is structured like an assisted homeschool. Because we have fewer school hours and days, we must have parent support at home. This includes checking your child’s folder and work daily, helping when needed using the provided resources, and encouraging students at home. Parents, students, and teachers must all be active participants here.

Will there be field trips?

Does Journey Learning Academy provide lunch and snacks?

-Yes! We will go on several field throughout the year for students get real-life experiences. (Parent suggestions welcomed!) Parents will be responsible for providing transportation.

-Each child will be responsible for bringing their own snack and lunch, as well as a refillable water bottle.
