Compass Homeschool Program offers families in the northern Virginia and metropolitan DC areas a menu of high-quality, in-person classes in core, elective, and enrichment topics in pre-K through 12th grade. All classes are taught by subject matter experts who teach multiple levels of engaging, experiential classes in science, technology, robotics, coding, math, English, foreign languages, history, art, acting, music, fitness, cooking, and more. Classes are taught in Herndon, VA, in a 4-quarter, 30-week academic year. Compass is open Monday through Friday, but most classes meet just one time per week. All classes are offered a la carte in a university model so homeschool families can schedule and mix-and-match of classes that best suits the needs of their child(ren). Compass students experience group learning in a classroom environment with like-minded homeschooled peers. In addition to regularly scheduled Compass classes, our families enjoy special activities, events, and academic clubs and contests.

Compass is a warm, welcoming community hub with families that represent a wide range of homeschooling philosophies, ethnic backgrounds, nationalities, races, religious beliefs, and political affiliations. Our dynamic community creates a positive environment where students welcome one another, and parents can network.
