Our Homeschool Program was actually the brainchild of a parent who called us to see if we knew anyone who offered archery as part of a homeschool program. For us, it was an interesting idea that we had never seen anyone else tackle before. So why not? We already believe that our approach to archery education resembled a classroom setting. We already used a class syllabus so that all the coaches were teaching the same steps, in the same order. My wife is a teacher and helped me get it in a format she would use if she was teaching our classes.
We have also integrated the components of our youth development JOAD program to help participants, who wish to return, the opportunity to continue to learn and develop their archery education. A Youth Membership with USA Archery is required ($40) to earn the pin and lanyard achievements. These costs are not covered by partnering districts and are the responsibility of the participant.
Participants may continue to retake the regular core curriculum until they are ready to advance to the JOAD level lessons.
Currently, we are in cooperation with:
- Center Line Public Schools - 16 week program
- Oxford Virtual Academy - 14 week program
- Homeschool Connections - 14 week program - New Program partner!
- Independent Homeschool Families
When registering with us online, you MUST select pay by check if your district is covering the cost of your tuition.
If you are a participant, parent, or administrator for a homeschool program and are interested in adding archery to your education portfolio, we can do direct billing to the parent organization or sponsoring school district. Contact us at (248) 602-2885 for more information.
Our range requires that all participants wear a closed toe shoe. Sandals and flip-flops, which do not enclose the toe, are not permitted for participants. Spectators are welcome to wear these types of shoes.
