Allow your child’s interest to thrive in this comprehensive science program that uses four classes over an eight-week period to investigate a seasonal theme. This program has a special registration process.  Since this program is more in-depth than our other homeschool-oriented classes, we have created a unique registration process. If you child/ren would like to participate in the theme for the nature scouts class, they will need to write one paragraph on why they are interested. The paragraph must be handwritten. This way we know that all the students in the class are really passionate about the subject. We will have a date that the paragraphs must be handed in by. Participants in the course will be chosen based on the content of their handwritten paragraph as well as the order in which we receive their registration.

Registration is required – Paragraphs are due by October 17th, 2018
