We are a Christian, non-denominational, hybrid tutorial program for students in grades K-12. We offer a new approach to parents who want to be actively involved in their children’s educational experience and who also want more time together as a family. Imagine a balance between an affordable private school and the flexibility of a homeschool schedule. At Ironwood, we are the primary teachers; parents do not have to worry about the curriculum, content, or pacing. More like college, students attend core academic classes two days a week and work independently or with assistance to complete their assignments. All of our upper level elementary, middle, and high school Instructors have a Masters degree and two are Ph.D.'s. Each faculty member is a State-certified teacher with a wealth of experience and passion for the subjects they teach.
Students in grades K-12 attend classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm. On those days, they receive instruction in four required core academic areas: English (Language Arts), History (Social Studies), Math, and Science, as well as instruction and coaching in our unique Emotional Intelligence (EQ) program. Students in grades 5-12 are also able to choose an elective course such as a world language, Art, Personal Finance, First-Aid/CPR, and Speech.
We offer an extended day to 4:00 pm on Tuesday and Thursday for students who have purchased an additional elective course. Students can also enroll in electives and a variety of enrichment courses offered on Wednesdays from 9:00 to noon.
