Our Philosophy

Dimensions Family School provides families with support in their homeschooling journey, mixing the strengths of a vibrant, multi-faceted school community with the individual, family-based strengths of homeschooling. This combination provides learners of all ages a new alternative to traditional education.

At Dimensions, children and adults become part of a community of peers with access to knowledgeable, helpful individuals with a wide variety of skills and talents. We provide members with the resources they need to direct their own learning, including materials, classes, peer groups, and social opportunities.  When children are free to pursue their own interests, they not only become happier and more engaged, they also become increasingly self-reliant, resourceful and confident in their ability to learn.  We support parents through a Parent Professional Development series, and we work together in a community to educate each member according to their unique strengths.

Experiential, real-world, interest-led learning is the most powerful type of growth experience.  We love to help kids expand their horizons and build on their strengths in a supportive community!

What We Believe

Dimensions Family School believes that family-centered, community-integrated learning creates passionate, life-long learners.

  • Every child deserves a holistic learning experience, honoring the multiple dimensions of their personalities, interests, and talents, to nurture and preserve their natural love of learning.  Kids love the cool classes and experiences!
  • Parents benefit from Parent Professional Development options, as well as informal community support and support groups for special needs.  We provide emotional and academic support for homeschooling parents.
  • The school is integrated into the community, and we actively seek to be engaged through internships, outreach programs, knowledge sharing, and partnerships with like-minded community development organizations.

No two students have exactly the same skills or learning style. That’s why we create an individual learning plan for every child that can change every eight weeks to reflect your child’s changing interests and skills. Your plan may combine direct teacher instruction, small-group work with peers, one-on-one tutoring, music instruction, and social activities.  Your family chooses when to utilize the school’s resources; maybe you come several mornings a week, or perhaps you stay the full day on Tuesday and Wednesday.
