Good Morning! I have information on the following openings in a POD in South East Meridian. I can send contact information if you are interested.

๐ŸŽK-1st, ๐Ÿ4th-6th, ๐ŸŽ7th - 8th

Curriculum follows a modified classical ideology focusing on meeting the students where they are and teaching them how they learn best. There is a cost involved but can be mitigated with enrollment in online programs like Tech Trep and Overture. There are a limited number openings.

Are you struggling with the idea of another school year full of ups and downs? Do you feel like your child needs a different type of learning environment? Does it feel like the interests and needs of your kiddo are not being met? We're here to help!

There are other options available to you and your child, ones that may just fill a need that you didn't even know you or your kiddo had. Message us, email us, or call us to see if we can help you find something better in the educational world.

07/22/2021

We are a non-profit group, built by moms who recognized the gap between the education our kids were receiving and what they needed in order to succeed. Our mission is to partner with parents to develop curious and confident learners who are prepared for life's challenges through hands-on, individualized learning experiences. We foster personal character development through service learning and provide a blended learning environment facilitating a deeper understanding of the world around them.

We are currently taking applications for 2 PODS or classrooms, 3rd - 6th and 7th and up. Applications are due by August 6th. For more information contact us by email or call. We will also answer DM.

The 7th grade and up POD will have the opportunity to work with athletic trainers during their curriculum. If you have a middle schooler who is sports minded, this may be a great fit for you!

Informational Meeting - Taking Control of Your Child's Education

Information meeting tonight in Meridian! Come join us if you want more information on how we can help you take control of your child's education. 6 pm!!

07/16/2021

Last year, this is exactly how I felt! So I joined a couple other moms who felt the same way and took control and made a change. Now I wouldn't change my kids' education for anything. They are healthier, happier, and finding that learning can be fun and engaging. Want to know more, contact us!

Why The One-Room Schoolhouse Is A Vision For The Future, Not Just A Relic Of The Past 06/02/2021

This article makes some excellent points, ones that we've seen in our own learning POD. When many ages learn together, it provides many more opportunities for solidifying those learned concepts. I've watched as 5th graders enhanced their own learning of a concept by teaching it to a younger student, a 3rd grader in our case.

I've watched a 2nd grader complete his core courses in that grade and continue on through 3rd-grade concepts into 4th-grade math. Education should be individual; each child does not learn the same way or at the same pace. Imagine being able to support children in their own educational goals, that sometimes far exceed the expectations that they would have had in a public setting.

If you have ever wondered about this style of learning, had questions about how a learning POD can benefit your child, or even just curious about how it all worked, message me your questions! We're putting together a Facebook live to address all of the questions we have received and those you send us.

So, ask away! What do you want to know about learning PODs???

Why The One-Room Schoolhouse Is A Vision For The Future, Not Just A Relic Of The Past The kind of teaching and learning that takes place in such an environment is much needed in todayโ€™s world and a modern-day version of the one-room schoolhouse can serve as a model for the renewal of education.

05/29/2021

A successful pioneering year for our 1st learning POD, Mission Podsible! 15 students, grades 2 - 5 completed their coursework to move on. There were even a few that moved up 2 grade levels this year! Individualized learning works, y'all!!

These kids are going to do AMAZING things!!

Why Learning Pods Might Outlast the Pandemic 05/06/2021

Learning pods can be a great option for a variety of reasons. You get to create your child's learning adventure! Are they here to stay?

We have ways to make it financially feasible!

Why Learning Pods Might Outlast the Pandemic Itโ€™s possible to imagine home schools becoming like sidewalk diningโ€”an experiment that sticks.

We are so excited to host 2 Open House events this week to showcase our first Learning POD and teach other parents and members of the community how to create their own! If you're interested, check out the events tab at the top of the page. And if you know someone interested, share, share, share.

02/19/2021

Our story began as parents, frustrated with the education that was being provided for our children. We wanted something better. So we created it. And now we want to help others do the same thing. We want to empower parents to take control of their children's education. It's possible! This is a little piece of our story.
