No worries that you missed the first week! We welcome you to come visit for free and see if your family is a good fit in our mutually respectful learning community.
Raw Learning operates much like a co*op. Some parents and community members volunteer to facilitate and/or teach. Their children come for free or at a very reduced rate because of their volunteering. One of our guiding principles is that self-directed community learning be available and affordable for every student.
We also welcome families who just want to pay and attend or drop their student off.
Raw Learning offers attendance that ranges from just joining as homeschoolers on field trips to full time enrollment in the private school and everything in between, even classes ala carte like an enrichment center. Whatever attendance works for your family, works for Raw Learning!
Field Trips: Wednesday, September 14th
*Only families preregistered may attend with Raw Learning. Registration for Winter Trimester field trips will be available in December.
IMPORTANT: Please text, email or call Gleamer and let her know if you are going to be late or absent. Her contact information is email@example.com and 540.292.3002
