What is a microschool?
A microschool is a non-traditional educational setting where students are learning side-by-side with learners of various ages and abilities. Think of it like a one room school house. Microschools have become increasingly popular as government school failure has become more prominent. The students enrolled at Path of Life Learning are considered homeschooled students or are students who are enrolled in a virtual school program, which allows parents to have more involvement in their child's education.

What if I want to enroll my child back into public school in the future?
We offer an exceptional learning experience that will allow most children to excel beyond typical grade-level expectations. Enrolling your child back into public school is simple, and this experience will not negatively impact their ability to enroll in another educational setting in the future.
Why choose Path of Life Learning?
Path of Life Learning recognizes the need to learn core concepts but also encourages children to learn many things beyond the traditional educational experience. We offer small class sizes to promote individualized learning, advocate kindness in all we do, and experience life in a way that fosters the curiosity that occurs during childhood.
Will I choose my child's curriculum?
Lower elementary children in the K-2 cohort (Littles) use our personalized, classical homeschool curriculum focusing on core academic skills. Upper elementary learners in the 3-5 cohort (Middles) and 6-8 cohort (Leaders) can either stay with this curriculum or choose the online learning or homeschool curriculum that works best for them. Our guides provide individual attention, support, and personalized planning for each child and learning style.
How will children be graded?
We measure our student progress through portfolios, projects, surveys, reports, and other evidence of mastery. No more stressing about tests and grades because we move forward based on mastery, not age or grade level!
If your child is considered a homeschool, you may opt to take a standardized test or to participate in an educational review to prove progress.
