Homeschool Programs

Monthly programs for homeschool families. 

We integrate the outdoor classroom with rigorous academic concepts, conservation-based themes, and connection with nature. Audubon Vermont's series of monthly homeschool programs focuses on key science concepts: math, biology, environmental sciences, outdoor skills, and communication/team skills.  Each program is designed to give you a platform from which to build other units/lessons in your homeschooling.  Audubon's programs will enrich, reinforce, and diversify what you’re working on at home.

We offer monthly homeschool sessions for both 6-8 year-olds and 9-12 year-olds.

Schedule: 4 hours of programming, including a 30 minute lunch break. All programs run from 9 am to 1 pm.

Registration: Register online for each session. Click the link next to the program topic for a description of the program and to register online. Program descriptions for the full year for most topics can be found in our Education Program Brochure.
