What We Offer
We encourage our students to teach a class on any topic they like. The experience gives the kids the confidence to speak and present in front of their peers. What sorts of things do they teach? We’ve had classes on puppet shows, making videos, trading card games, crayon art, drawing animals, and making pillows!
Our students often say what they love most about Gear Up is the friends they make. Our format allows plenty of time for students to get to know one another, including dedicated social time at the end of each day, between classes and special event parties.
Homeschooling can be a lonely prospect. But it doesn’t have to be. One of our missions at Gear Up is to provide a place where all homeschoolers are welcome in a secular environment that honors all learning styles and beliefs. We do this by providing enrichment courses and a social outlet on a consistent basis as well as group activities such as theatre, community service and holiday parties.
The kids are great, good listeners, and engaged. It's been rewarding teaching them.
Taught history and art
I get to see my friends, play and do stuff I don't do at home.
I love all of the friends I’ve made and all of the fun activities there.
It was place for me to be with other kids - I didn't have a lot of places for peer engagement so this meant a lot to me.
I get to see my friends and play cool games.
I know that my children are with other alternatively educated peers. It is great to know they are in a safe, inclusive, stimulating, and engaging environment.
I'm always meeting new friends and learning new things at Gear Up : )
They have lots of different crafts and great friends!
Everyone is so nice and I love when I get to see my kids excited to teach their own class
