Atlantic Academic Partners
Area: Virginia Beach

“Homeschooling without you having to be at home”. We are a homeschool family and believe in the outstanding and rewarding academic process that allows each student to excel in a much less stressful manner. We are a unique type of homeschooling co-op, eliminating much of the burden and great demands on parents. Nearly every co-op requires parents to assist with teaching and cleaning, etc, we don’t. All we ask is that each parent provides continued academic support at home when needed in areas where your child might be struggling. Our program is built for independent learners. Our mission is to facilitate an environment for children to focus on their academics with support, guidance, and positive motivation.

Most online homeschooling programs and public schools’ requirements state that the parent or other responsible adult will be the students learning coach and an active participant in their child’s education. Often this demands continual delivery of lessons and materials consuming your time and energy, depleting yours and your child’s patience while adding undue stress. We recognize this problem…how can you handle it all? That’s where we come in! Essentially, we partner with you. Atlantic Academic Partners allows you to be in more than one place at a time. You can still work and we can monitor and assist your child. Together – We can do it all!

Areas:
Fredericksburg

FAHA (Fredericksburg Area Homeschoolers’ Association) began as more than a homeschool support group. It started as an intentional community, secular, close-knit, and like-minded. In 2003, the founders were immersed in attachment parenting, respectful parenting, and natural living. That is still strong in many of us, and has continued to inform our lives as our children grow. New members have been attracted to some or all of these values and interests.

Now FAHA has grown too large for everyone to know everyone else like in the early days, but as our name says, we are an association of interest-led groups. Our website is a place for homeschooling families to connect with other homeschooling families in the vicinity of Fredericksburg for clubs, events, classes, projects, activities, field trips, park days and whatever else interests you and your children.

Valley Classical School    (Religious)
Areas:
Blacksburg, New River Valley

Valley Classical School (VCS) is a classical Christian school in the New River Valley that takes a collaborative approach to education. Below you will find a short description of what we mean by classical, collaborative, and Christian.

Classical: We use proven teaching methods that align with a child’s natural developmental stages, equipping students with tools for lifelong learning through the phases of grammar, logic, and rhetoric. Our comprehensive curriculum is well rounded in the study of science, math, history, literature and poetry, English grammar, spelling, writing, Latin, and the arts.

Collaborative: Students attend class on campus with trained teachers two days a week, and then receive assignments to complete under the guidance of parents at home two to three days a week. This allows parents to share in the academic instruction of their children, but also provides the structure and benefits of the classroom environment.

Christian: A Christ-centered perspective in education means that the board, staff, and families of Valley Classical School are united in affirming our statement of faith (The Nicene Creed). It also means that the way we think about and pursue the training of students is influenced by our understanding of the gospel and the truths of the Bible. Ultimately, what is true, good, and beautiful is rooted in Christ.
