About This Course

*there will be the option to attend in person or take the course virtually until further notice*
 
Children often imagine that people in the ancient world were much different than themselves. Discover with us that humans are the same then, as we are today. In this course, your student will encounter what it means to be truly human.
"Thy Foundation Course" designed primarily for home educators who are NOT RECEIVING CHARTER FUNDS. Mondays, $36 a day for 30 weeks.  Virtual option available as well!
The drop-off program will include History with Art, Fine Art, Geography/ Crafts/ and Games, assigned recess, and workshops for the parents. Drop off your students at 9 am and pick up at 12:30 pm, parents will have the option to stay for a 45-minute seminar at drop off. Even with a shorter schedule, your student will still write and illustrate a book about the ancient world in the 30 weeks.
At Monday drop off, our founder Kim Frassett will direct a weekly 45-minute workshop on beginning homeschooling. Kim Frassett has been involved with the homeschooling community as a top tier educator for over 35 years. She has discovered all the advantages of a project-based learning style. 

 

  • Simplify your teaching by having all of your students learn the same period of history together. 

  • Increase their reading skills as they read through primary sources about people and events of the ancient world. 

  • Sharpen their geography comprehension as they learn where these events happened. 

  • Involve your students in the culture, games, and art of the Ancient World.

  • Develop their critical thinking skills as they naturally engage in instructor-led discussions with peers.

SIGN UP QUICKLY! WE ARE ONLY TAKING SIXTY STUDENTS IN THE FOUNDATION COURSE!
Each class is limited to 20 student in this "Terra Style" (Project Based Learning) course. In our 30 sessions, your student will address a real-world problem, develop its solution, and present their answer using the skills they acquire. PBL is the act of learning about different subjects simultaneously. This is achieved by guiding students to accomplish a creative goal. Our goal is to write and illustrate a volume of Ancient History, where the student can record their insights about the nature of the human experience.
  • History - Meet the crucial figures that move nations. Discover the beliefs, traditions, and passions that motivated those individuals.
  • Beginning Drawing - Our history is taught with art. Every student will master the skill of drawing. We start with beginning-level instruction for all grade levels.
  • Geography - We will learn the history of geographic discovery as well as games and crafts from around the world.
  • Fine Art - Ancient art is the foundation of all of art history, with its techniques, forms, and subject matter continuing to influence the art of today. You will make representative copies of great classical art in class.
Terra Arts is a nonsectarian program that rents space at a First Presbyterian Church in Westminster.

TERRA'S MONEY MESSAGE:

The Registration Fee holds your spot until August 15, 2020, when you must begin monthly payments or provide a purchase order from your charter school. Your registration fee can not be paid by instructional funds from your charter and is not refundable. If you do not register and pay the registration fee, you may be surprised to find that the class is sold out, and the teacher is not prepared for your student. A purchase order is not enough to consider yourself registered. The purchase order from your charter does not give us any contact information for you, tell us specifically which class you desire, or include the signed Terms and Conditions document.

The fee also causes potential students to consider which courses they need carefully, prevents spots from being held unnecessarily, and gives the teacher accurate information from which to plan their classes. The registration fee is not deductible from the tuition.

DROP POLICY: Drops are accepted until September 31, 2020. After classes have begun, you may only drop the course if you have withdrawn from homeschooling or moved out of the area.
