Compass Homeschool Program offers homeschool families in northern Virginia and the metro DC area a menu of high quality core, elective, enrichment and extracurricular classes. All classes are taught by qualified outside instructors who are subject matter experts and teach multiple levels of interesting, experiential classes in science, technology, math, English, languages, history, communication, art, acting, music, and more. Classes are taught in Oakton in a 4-quarter, 30-week academic year. Classes for kids in PK – 8th grade meet on Wednesday, while some 7th – 12th grade classes meet on Friday only, or Wednesday and Friday. All classes are offered a la carte so homeschool families can mix and match for multiple siblings and try a topic without locking into a year-long commitment. Classes for preK – 8th grade run on 7- or 8- week quarter system, while high school classes are semester-long or year-long. Compass classes give students a taste of group learning in a classroom on a campus setting with like-minded homeschooled peers. Compass families also enjoy a warm, welcoming community that enjoys special activities, events, and academic clubs/contests in addition to regularly scheduled classes. Compass classes are organized by homeschool parents for other homeschool families. Compass Homeschool Program is a secular, inclusive program.
