How It Works
A Personalized Learning Plan
Together we envision and chart a personal educational plan. These plans are based on the idea of a map. We help each learner find where they are on this map and where they want to go. Then we serve as guides and facilitators to help them along their way. The individualized plan is based on the teen’s interests while also fulfilling the family’s needs. Ingenuity Hub facilitates the process through discussion and recommendations based on our experience.
If the teen is under age 16, we will help you prepare this plan as a homeschooling proposal for submission to your local superintendent. This is a very straight forward process. Your superintendent’s office will certify you as a homeschooler. This is the contract that makes leaving school legal for youth under age 16.
We recognize that “homeschooling” is a word that can raise concern among some parents, but we assure you that it works. Thousands of families just like yours use the homeschooling laws as a way to improve their children’s education. Please contact us to discuss this opportunity for your child.
Each teen is assigned a personal mentor. Through regular meetings we help imagine and realize goals, track progress, and facilitate tutorials and community connections. This relationship is at the core of the Ingenuity Hub experience.
Your mentor will meet with your family at least three times per year to envision possibilities and to review achievements. More meetings are scheduled as requested. Parental involvement is encouraged. There are many opportunities for parents to be a part of our community.
Classes, Workshops, and Tutorials
Ingenuity Hub will offer programs between the hours of 9:00 AM and 5:00 PM, Monday through Thursday and a special Community Service day on Friday from 9:00 AM to Noon. Our classes represent the interests and passions of our current collection of staff and include a wide range of topics. Most classes have fewer than 10 students. Ingenuity Hub provides individual one-on-one meetings in a wide range of subjects, such as mathematics, foreign language, guitar, and computer programming, as available.
A New Way to Approach Learning, Education, and Life
Our focus is on the individual and his or her particular strengths, needs, and goals. We meet teens where they are and support them in becoming whomever they want to be. Rather than focusing on weaknesses, we ask: “What are you good at? What do you love to do?” and build from there.
