About the Program
Forest Path Academy offers a variety of options for home-schooling families. Our goal is to help families on their home-school journey. We offer a variety of programs for all ages. The Forest Path curriculum is for children in grades 1 through High School, and the Discovery Tree program is for Pre-K and Kindergarten aged students.
PRE-K and KINDERGARTEN
Our Discovery Tree program includes a variety of classes, including storytimes, toddler art classes, and a pre-K and Kindergarten program. We offer a preschool program as well as Kindergarten, and families can choose from one to four days for their children. For Kinder, we recommend 3 (or 4) days per week. We have a very strong phonics based reading program, and offer developmentally appropriate curriculum for all ages.

PATHS FOR ELEMENTARY GRADES THROUGH HIGH SCHOOL
We offer the PATHS complete curriculum for grades 1-high school. PATHS stands for Parent And Teacher, Home and School. This is a complete curriculum in ALL subject areas for students in 1st through high school. Students attend classes twice weekly on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Students will have additional assignments to complete at home. All lesson planning is done for you, so you are free to enjoy your home-schooling journey, and you can supplement or add to the curriculum as you would like. Please click on the PATHS link on the left for more detailed information on this program. Parents may also choose to enroll in individual classes instead of the full program, to create a custom curriculum.
INDIVIDUAL CLASSES / ELECTIVES
In addition to the core subjects included in the PATHS curriculum, we offer additional classes such as Lego Robotics, private music lessons, and others. Parents may also choose to enroll their child in individual classes that are part of our PATHS curriculum, such as History or Science only. In this way, parents can create a completely customized curriculum for their family. Individual classes are generally $55 per month for academic classes that are a part of our PATHs curriculum, such as math, science or history. Specialty classes such as Lego Robotics or Choir prices can be seen on our specialty classes handout.
We offer a variety of field trips, holiday parties, and other activities. Many of these activities are open to all, including families who are not enrolled in our classes. We invite families to join up mailing list to receive info on these programs. Some field trips may have additional fees.
