Three Age Groups
We offer 3 learning groups at the Family Academy.Â Parents will be asked to attend and participate with their children often. This is no longer a drop off academy- but an academy for the entire family to learn their role in education.
1) Junior A Class-Students who are reading and have begun learning at home
Brigham Young taught that children at this age are directly under the influence of their mother. We honor this principle and for this age we will be directly teaching and working with mothers to learn how to homeschool and to continueÂ what they have started.
2) Junior B Classâ€“ Students who have the basic skills of reading and writing, and now hunger for researching, scripture learning, andÂ want some hands on learning.Â Students who are ready to set goals
This is a transitional age, as young children will start learning to set goals, and move towards the direction of working under their father in education.
3) Senior Classâ€“ Students who have started toÂ set goals, and ready to learn and live their mission
Brigham Young taught that children at this age fall now under the father and his direction.Â Mothers were to teach good character, lay the foundation of morals and values, and now fathers could take on this training. We honor this revealed educational principle and will be encouraging fathers to take an active role with their childâ€™s education.
**We offer a class for beginner readers for ages 4/5. This is only a two hour class helping to strengthen reading skills and some math. Please see us about this new Junior Preparatory class being offered.
