Core Overview

Our core program curriculum is delivered in a one-day-a-week format for 30 weeks each year.  Students are each assigned a core day. They arrive by 9:00 a.m., eat lunch at 11:45 a.m. and are dismissed at 3:05 p.m.  Core programs are offered on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.

Students in grades 1-4 are in the Grammar level; while students in grades 5-8 constitute the Logic level. High school students in grades 9-12 are in the Rhetoric level.

Every homeschool is unique, and we honor the flexibility which home educators value. There are many different ways to couple one’s homeschool with Greenhouse. For every Grammar- and Logic-level core course, the syllabus provides additional resources and possible projects for families who want to go further. Since the goal of “homework” is for the student to be prepared for class, Greenhouse allows parents the freedom to adjust or replace assignments in instances when they believe they have a more suitable way to prepare their child for a given class. We often sponsor a panel discussion with several veteran families so others can see the variety of ways that Greenhouse can be combined with different home schools.
