Flexible parental involvement. Parents and caregivers are an important part of homeschooling, however parent involvement is not a requirement during class time. In fact, microSchool can give homeschool parents a nice break if that’s something you’d enjoy! If you are a parent and are also qualified to teach a class (experience is valued in addition to formal schooling especially in our enrichment classes) please apply and let us know your ideas at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you feel your child’s learning will benefit from your presence for other reasons, we can talk about that too!
Dial it up (or down). We offer many paths at LRS because we want your child’s education to be individualized. You can choose one day a week or two. You can choose to enroll in core classes or just enrichment classes or our full curriculum. We also offer a full service membership which offers our entire slate of courses two days/week plus take-home curriculum that will round out a complete homeschool program that meets PA state requirements. Additional full membership perks include first dibs on our field trips to local museums, parks and special events, print outs of course descriptions for your portfolio and help with certification.
No grades (of any kind) We are not organized by grade level (even though some of our curriculum lists grades for illustrative purposes). This allows us to further individualize each child’s education so we can make the education fit the child not try to make the child fit the education. Also, our courses do NOT result in any grades issued. Assessments will only be used in ways that help us understand if the material is understood and assessment does NOT have to equal “test”. Narrative evaluations may be given for some courses to assist in letting parents know what their child learned and what progress was made.

We make use of well-written, multisensory curricula such as Singapore Math and Haggerty Phonemic Awareness in addition to our own creative, student-centered approach.

2021/22 Spring Enrichment Classes
ASL can be a great language choice for students with dyslexia. While spoken languages are oral and require discrimination of speech sounds, signed languages are visual and use handshapes, gestures, and facial expressions. Since many dyslexic students struggle with phonemic awareness (the ability to distinguish individual sounds within words) learning new words with new sounds can be a daunting task. ASL, on the other hand, is a hands-on, visual language. Dyslexic students often pick it up more quickly and successfully than they would spoken languages.
“We know that dyslexic individuals have trouble accessing the individual sounds of spoken words,” says Dr. Shaywitz. “So if you have trouble learning the sound system of your primary language, you will have enormous difficulties learning the sound system of a second language. This applies to about 99 percent of dyslexics—but not everyone, though.
