3. ACADEMIC COACHING

We strengthen executive function through academic coaching which sets the student up for success on homeschool days

4. UNIQUE SCHEDULING

We provide a variety of ways to participate in our Schoolhouse program! In person classes, One-on-one tutoring, and parent support, all available in Lexington, KY and online.

5. CLASSICAL EDUCATION

We follow the grammar, logic, and rhetoric philosophy of educational development.

6. CHARLOTTE MASON

We use Charlotte Mason’s approach for literature, narration and dictation, nature study, and more.

7. PROJECT-BASED LEARNING

We teach many concepts through projects that are hands-on and tailored to each student.

9. LESS TESTING

We evaluate students through goals, projects, and presentations a well as the occasional quiz or test. This allows student to "show their smarts" AND get practice taking tests so they are prepared for wherever they go next.

Jump Start is a great starting point for all new Yellow Wood families! We begin with an in-depth evaluation of cognitive skills, academic skills, primitive reflexes, social/behavioral needs, and executive functioning. This evaluation is completed through parent questionnaires, placement tests, and an evaluation with the student (either in person or online) in which we play games, do some exercises and movement to gauge the skills listed above.

Once the evaluation is completed, we write up a detailed “action plan” that explains, in parent-friendly terms, what we observed during the evaluation. This “action plan” is like a snapshot of your child’s skills and helps us determine curriculum and therapies that will be used.

If you’re enrolling in a Schoolhouse program, you’ll also receive curriculum suggestions as part of the action plan. The action plan includes which "Success Training" skills are weakest, what to focus on and how, and a suggested list of resources to get you started! As Jumpstart clients, you'll receive 20% off all of our workshops and products too! You’ll also receive detailed instructions on where to purchase your curriculum!

Yellow Wood’s Jump Start program also includes a phone or in-person consultation with Laurie Geary, our director, to go over your action plan and determine goals and curriculum for your child!

With the Jump Start Program, you have the option of enrolling your student in a program for ONE subject, THREE subjects, or ALL subjects! Subjects available: Math, English Skills (grammar, handwriting, spelling, reading), Writing/Literature, History, Science, and Foreign Language.

YOU CAN CHOOSE TO DO JUMP START ONLY, OR YOU CAN PAIR IT WITH ONE OF THESE TWO OPTIONS:

TRAIL GUIDE OR ONLINE SCHOOLHOUSE!

This option is available to local clients as well as online clients, and includes everything listed in our Jump Start program, PLUS...

Parents have coaching sessions with a Yellow Wood tutor every 4 weeks. During these sessions, you’ll discuss goals, troubleshoot challenges you’re facing in your homeschool, discuss progress and next steps. We then create a 4-week “goal plan” that includes lessons for Success Training and a general outline of work to be completed in your classes too. These lessons are NOT scripted lesson plans, but instead are daily, weekly, or monthly goals to complete for each subject.

For example, you might have a goal to complete 2 lessons in math each week for a total of 8 lessons. We might also include activities to do daily for number line visualization and math facts. The best part is, these goals and lesson ideas are customized for your child’s needs!

Another great benefit of our Trail Guide program is it includes our “Weekly Success Challenge” subscription, AND you’ll receive 40% off all our workshops and products.

Just like in Jump Start, you can choose for us to assist with ONE subject, THREE subjects, or ALL Subjects. Subjects available: Math, English Skills (grammar, handwriting, spelling, reading), Writing/Literature, History, Science, and Foreign Language.
