Homeschool Enrichment Program

Homeschool Enrichment Program

At The nZone, we recognize the hard work, planning, and passion that goes into the decision to homeschool your child. With this in mind, we have created the nSpire homeschool enrichment program. Your child will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of interactive and engaging classes to complement the work you do at home. From art to gymnastics to science, music, and cooking, your child will work in groups to explore, create, and wonder.

One of the many benefits of homeschooling is the flexibility to custom design the education your child needs. Our nSpire program provides the flexibility you need and the inspiration you desire to develop the curriculum to help your child thrive and grow.

We have a new line up of classes starting September 6th!  Register before July 1st and receive a 10% discount.

Classes are designed for students ages 3 years to 15 years.

Sign up for one class or all of them!

Trial Class and Fall Class Descriptions:

Around the World Geography (all ages) – Take a trip around the world with us, you won’t even need a passport!  Students will learn about a different country each week.  They will learn common phrases, the capital, cultural facts, and maybe even sample some traditional foods or play some cultural games.

Art (all ages) – “Every child is an artist.” – Pablo Picasso.  Each child will learn to express themselves using different mediums from acrylics to clay to felt.  They will also learn about a different artist each week, practicing some of the techniques that were unique to that artist.  Students will create a unique art project to take home after each class.

Beginners (ages 3+) – Students will move and spin while they learn the basics of classical ballet. This class is intended for younger students and those who are just beginning their journey into the world of ballet.

Intermediate – Students in this class will continue their journey into the world of ballet, practicing balance, poses, and flexibility.  The class is intended for older students, or those who have had experience with ballet.

Cooking Classes for beginners (ages 4-7)-   Does your child always want to help out in the kitchen? Students in this beginner level class will learn kitchen safety as well as basic cooking techniques.  They will stir, mix, and fold ingredients together to create delicious dishes, featuring ingredients they may not be used to.  After they sample their cooking, they will go home with recipes and leftovers.

Cooking Classes for intermediate (ages 8+)- Is your child interested in learning how to make delicious meals from scratch? Students in this intermediate level class will create different dishes each week. They will learn more advanced kitchen skills like food safety, basic knife skills, and other culinary techniques.  After sampling their creations, they will go home with recipes and leftovers.

Creative Writing (ages 10-15) – Students will learn to express themselves, convey their messages in thoughtful ways and engageg their readers.  They will create their own works as well as study works of experienced writers.  They will learn what makes writing interesting as well as what elements can be used to make their writing come alive.

Gymnastics:  Did you know that Gymnastics is one of most beneficial sports that children can participate in? And physical fitness is just the beginning! Gymnastics provides children with improved mental clarity and focus, increased bone health, muscle strength and builds self- confidence! Children who participate in Gymnastics and other organized sports are more likely to have positive social interactions, less sick visits and more self-esteem!  Our partners, the professionals at LOCO Gymnastics in Ashburn, will be teaching the classes.

Recreational LEVEL 1: Introductory program designed for ages 3-10. Introduces skills and concepts such as body awareness, body placement and position, focus and listening. Children will learn to do table tops, forward and back rolls, handstands etc.

Recreational LEVEL 2: Advanced course offered once all level 1 requirements have been met. Skills become more challenging, class times increase and longer attention span is required during instruction. Children continue to build upon all skills in level 1 and advance to beam dismounts, compound floor skills and routines and bar and vault work.

LEGO Robotics Mindstorm Madness (ages 5-15) – Discover, create, build, and program!  Participants will work together to build and program a robot which can move, spin, grab, and talk.  Participants will use bricks, motors, and sensors to build their creations.  They will learn how to program the robot’s actions.  This class will take any love of Legos and robots to the next level.  NOTE:  This class is 90 minutes.

Music (all ages) – “Music is a more potent instrument than any other for education because rhythm and harmony find their way into the inward places of the soul.” – Plato.  Students will begin to learn the building blocks of music.  They will practice solfedge, learn about music notes, rhythm and beats all while having fun and jammin’ out.

Outdoor Adventures (ages 6-12) – “Nature is a tool to get children to experience not just the wider world, but themselves.” – Stephen Moss.  In this class, students will learn the basics to have their own camping adventure including multiple ways to build a camp fire, pitch a tent, tie useful knots and cook a meal outdoors.  This class is perfect for anyone who loves being outside in the rain or sunshine!

Students will need to bring their own camera (Digital, point and shoot, or even a smart phone).

Sloppy Science (all ages) – It’s no surprise that kids learn best when they can explore and try things for themselves. Come check out our sloppy science class in action, while we make chemical reactions, collect data, and make a big mess. Your budding scientist will experience our amazing world hand on….the best part? You won’t have to clean anything up!!
