Joobilo Academic Community (JAC) is a homeschool organization for grades TK–High School that offers core and elective classes at multiple locations. We give families the opportunity to build a solid academic foundation upon the classical model of education within a supportive and vibrant community.
Our 28-week program is based on an integrated curriculum designed to run in a four year cycle. We meet twice a week for classes, and families have the option to join community time.
Class Time is designed to satisfy charter school requirements, and features both core and elective classes. Each class is led by a qualified instructor, and is intended to provoke curiosity and inspire learning.
Core subjects such as history, science, language arts, and math are offered. Students are dropped off for the class or classes.
Every student is unique, and no standardized grading will be given. Outcomes are not guaranteed, but our best effort is.
PLEASE NOTE: This part of our program is religious in nature, and DOES NOT qualify for charter school funds.
Community Time (TK-6th Grade) brings families together for learning in a group setting. Parent participation is required throughout the entire morning, and our time is devoted to many of the tenets of Christian classical education, such as grammar memory work, geography, historical art, and oral presentations.
Unlike Class Time, drop-off is not allowed.
The Omni Program: Is designed for students to engage in dialectic discussion as they explore different topics and ideas from classic literature and current events. They will engage these topics through the process of logical reasoning, and will evaluate:
1. What is the author trying to say?
2. What is our society/culture saying about this?
3. What does the Bible –– the Word of God –– teach about the subject?
This program is drop-off, but parents are welcome to attend at any time.
The name Joobilo is inspired by the biblical concept of Jubilee, which refers to a time of freedom, neighborly kindness, and celebration that is marked by jovial expression. Jubilee is when community is at its best.
Building upon that idea, Joobilo is about helping families enjoy the experience of educating their children within a community that highly values kindness, support, and understanding.
