Our Learning Options
Classically inspired Heritage Flex Academy offers two options to suit the needs of home-learning families. Both options include an opportunity to take one-day-a-week exploratory courses throughout the year on topics such as dance, Latin, culinary arts, art, student leadership, yearbook, and physical education.
Flex Hybrid Learning
Heritage Flex Academy offers a hybrid classroom and home learning program that incorporates the best of our classically inspired classroom instruction with home instruction by parent educators using teacher-designed lesson plans. Students enrolled in the Flex Hybrid Learning option will receive professional instruction on campus, two days a week, and learn at home in a supervised independent study program, under the mentorship of their parents, the remaining three days. Parents who choose the Flex Hybrid option will be able to select either a Tuesday/Thursday schedule (Red Path) or a Wednesday/Friday (Blue Path) schedule. Class sizes are small, with a maximum of 20 students. The curriculum is thoughtfully designed to facilitate easy parent interaction with the required material. The Heritage Flex Academy curriculum recognizes the central role that art and music play in a young student’s intellectual development. Therefore, art and music are integrated into the core curriculum. Additional arts, athletics, and tutorial services will be available as optional electives on Exploration Monday.
Flex Home Learning
At Heritage Flex Academy, parents have the option of teaching their students at home five days a week in a supervised independent study program, using classically inspired curriculum designed with the parent educator in mind. In the Flex Home learning option, each family is provided with support from a highly-qualified credentialed teacher, known as an Academic Adviser. Our Academic Advisers have served many years in the independent study community and are familiar with a broad scope of curriculum. They can help parents to navigate the classically-inspired curriculum options we recommend, and they can consider parent suggestions for new curriculum, when the coursework meets our rigorous standards. Curriculum selection is truly a partnership where the needs of the parents and the students are carefully considered and a course of study is tailored to the talents of each student. Academic Advisers meet weekly in person or via Zoom with each student and their parent individually to monitor progress and support learning. The teachers are available to answer questions, or for consultation, coaching, and support.
