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.

5 Key Learning ​Elements:






Our STEAM project-based ​approach to innovative ​learning encourages children ​to explore the world around ​them. Hands-on experiences ​build invaluable critical ​thinking skills, problem solving ​skills, and creativity, all while ​working together and making ​connections with each other ​and the real world.

Why learn this way?

Students have a more ​personalized learning ​experience. The integration of ​STEAM learning leads to a more ​well-rounded education. The ​flexibility allows for a better ​home/work/school balance, ​which in turn helps foster a love ​of learning.

Learning can be FUN!

Does anyone really like


Let's get excited about our

week of learning by

starting with STEAM


Science projects, art

creations, math games.….. ​oh my!

Mondays will be full of ​hands-on discovery ​learning!

Hours- 9:00 AM-1:10 PM


These days, we will focus on our CORE subjects ​like reading, math, science, social studies, and ​writing. Our day is divided into four sessions.

During two of the sessions, students will work ​independently, using individualized learning ​programs/tools, in order to meet preset weekly ​goals. Teacher support is given as needed during ​this time, but we aim to create independent ​problem solvers!

Both other sessions are teacher-led, using hands-​on learning strategies and Socratic discussions.

Hours- 9:00 AM-1:10 PM


Fun Fridays will be focused ​on elective skills. Examples ​include foreign languages, ​art, music, life skills, baking, ​cooking, gardening, survival ​skills, physical education, ​and nature studies.

Fridays are optional in-​building school days if a child ​has met his/her goals for the ​week.

Hours- 9:00-1:10 PM

What is STEAM?

STEAM is a hands-on approach to teaching and learning that combines science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics.

-Students learn to ask questions and problem solve while collaborating with others.

-The STEAM approach values real-world application, builds content knowledge, and provides hands-on learning opportunities for students.

-Using this approach allows students to design and innovate, using their imagination, while empowering students.


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.

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.

How much is tuition for K-8th ​graders?

Tuition is $300 per month, per child, ​August through May, with an ​additional one-time $125 supply fee.

This tuition covers building fees, ​curriculum costs, and operational ​costs to keep the school ​functioning.

Are there scholarships ​available to help cover ​tuition?

Not at the moment! However, ​we do encourage families to ​fundraise as needed! We are ​hoping to start a parent ​committee to lead these ​fundraisers this year.

Does Journey Learning Academy provide lunch and snacks?
