Over-arching theme this season is ELEMENTALS! Autrey Mill is a unique setting for home school programs featuring a 46-acre nature preserve with trails, woodlands, wetland and creek; animal exhibits; historic buildings, indoor and outdoor classrooms, artifacts, and heritage gardens. Our Home School curriculum provides an exciting learning experience developed to really engage students in the study of topics combining environmental studies, nature, history, and science. Home school lessons are based on nationally recognized curriculum and are correlated with state standards in Life Science, Physical Science, and History.
In the Home School series, students will explore Autrey Mill’s natural environment and history, focusing on a different topic for each 4-hour class. Home School classes are offered on a Thursday and Friday each month.
