A unique hybrid educational experience
for students in grades K-12.
As iron sharpens iron, so does one person sharpen another.
Ironwood Academy is a hybrid program for parents who want more control over their child's educational experience. We combine the best of an affordable private school and the flexibility of a homeschool schedule, offering college-preparatory courses in a Christian environment taught by the most qualified and engaging teachers.
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 or 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, Studio Art, Personal Finance, First-Aid/CPR, Film Making, and Theater Arts.
Students can also enroll in electives and a variety of enrichment courses offered on Wednesdays from 9:00 to 3:00 pm. Wednesdays are optional for students who may want to engage in small group study halls in addition to a la carte enrichment courses,
Ironwood Academy Offers Unique Emotional Intelligence (EQ) Curriculum
Ironwood collaborated with national Christian child development expert, Dr. Joshua Straub, to curate a first-of-its-kind emotional intelligence (EQ) curriculum that is taught to all students in grades K-12. Ironwood Academy’s objective is to provide an emotionally-safe environment in which students (and parents) will be given specific tools to identify and regulate emotions and, just as importantly, to recognize and respect others’ feelings. The curriculum includes training on neurobiological concepts regarding brain structure, development and function; healthy problem solving and coping skills; cognitive flexibility and language processing; as well as teaching and practicing listening and social skills.
