Sacramento Spark

Homeschool Enrichment

 

A great way to supplement your homeschool education!

Sacramento Spark  is a homeschool enrichment program where fun and friendships happen.  Our learning studio is the place where social skills such as team work and cooperation are used and developed.

Enrollment

Our Environment

Through our Enrichment Class, Spark introduces students to foreign languages, music theory and art as these are woven into each lesson. This one-day-a-week, mixed-age class is meant to enhance the Science component of your homeschool curriculum.  It has been designed to meet the California State Science Standards for 1st-5th grades.

Through our Group tutoring, students in 6th – 12th grades can get additional help with their school work and learn study techniques and organizational skills while adding a social element to their day.

Our learning studio offers a screen-free environment to allow authentic interactions and friendships to grow.

A Word

From Our Program Director

“Thank you so much for your interest in our program.  The care and safety of your child is our number one concern.  No less important is the emotional safety they feel in the relationships they form with their instructors and fellow classmates.  By creating a positive, inclusive, supportive community within our learning studio, our goal is for your child to create beautiful memories and lasting frienships”

Our Classroom

Sacramento Spark Learning Studio

Spark began as a homeschool co-op with a very small group of kids meeting once a week in a garage.  The following school year a larger group was meeting in a community center in the heart of old Fair Oaks. We are so excited to be starting our third school year in our own learning space.
