Your local Charter and Independent Study Solution
We are a co-op of like-minded home school educators with a passionate commitment to excellence in education, especially for those who have chosen to home school their children. All of our staff have homeschooled their own children or were homeschooled themselves. Several of our staff are California credentialed teachers or have Masters degrees. Our goal is to meet the individual educational needs of the students we serve and to instill compassion and caring in all of our endeavors.
The Devine Schoolhouse desires to serve all of it's students and to assist each student in reaching their fullest academic potential. As we grow, additional classes will be added, days of attendance increased and opportunities for guided field trips.
The Devine Schoolhouse mission is to provide quality instruction and collaborative education opportunities, however we are not here to take the place of the home school parent or independent study teachers. Parents are responsible for grading homework and keeping their students records. We hope you will become part of our Schoolhouse familiy.
SNACK & LUNCH
COVID 19 Response
The educators and students at Devine Schoolhouse welcome all students and especially those who may have special educational or physical needs. Because our classes are small, we are able to modify and accommodate most needs. We welcome those who may require an aid to assist them with learning. Although we are not a school we do respect FERPA requirements. We will not discuss your students' personal information with anyone without your permission.
It is our vision to create a positive educational environment where each student can receive instruction and reach their individual potential. We provide a warm and welcoming center where independent study students can collaborate with other students enabling them to grow with peers.
WHAT WE DO
We use our home school and classroom experience to provide an excellent education experience for independent study students. We are loving and kind educators who just love teaching, especially home schooled students.
We are members of the growing community of families who choose to home school. Each student and family is unique and we celebrate that individuality. You will find that The Devine Schoolhouse is here to support each student and the families that educate them. We support all home schooling styles and seek to compliment the families philosophy.
Our curriculum is carefully chosen by our educators. It is always the responsibility of the student to order books and supplies from your Charter School or provide it yourself.
Tuition for classes at The Devine Schoolhouse can be paid for by using funds provided by your Charter School for outside classes and curriculum. We are currently providers for several California Charter Schools in the Antelope Valley north of Los Angeles. Independent home school students are encouraged to attend. Independent students will be invoiced, we accept cash or check.
We currently do not have the facility to offer lunch and snack to our students. If your student is going to be on campus between 10:15-10:30 or 1:00-1:30 we ask that you provide a snack or lunch, to be kept in the students backpack in the classroom. We have lovely picnic tables, grassy areas and classrooms for our mid-day breaks. Students will be supervised by staff during breaks, however lunch and snack are not provided.
At the Devine Schoolhouse we are passionate about our students' well being. Our small class sizes, daily cleaning with disinfecting solutions, our family's commitment to sending only well students to class, and outside eating areas contribute to our mitigation of the virus. We will be asking students who are able to follow CDC and California Department of Education guidelines for attending classes. Should the governor of California close schools during the school year, Devine Schoolhouse will continue classes in a virtual environment utilizing Zoom and the BAND app to continue to educate our students until the closure is lifted.
