Start Your Own Microschool /
"Inspired Learning Pods"

During these unprecedented times when traditional schools are going fully online or closing altogether while many parents and students have decided they don't like online schooling after their experience last Spring, many people are looking for options.  Some are considering homeschooling, but are not comfortable taking on that responsibility, especially those that are working.  Others are talking to their network of families about joining together to form some sort of homeschooling pod where small groups can get together safely and do school together.

Whatever your situation, we at Inspired Learning Academy have traveled done a similar path when we started our microschool for middle/high school which is now going into our 4th year.  We are also part of an association of microschools.  We've learned a lot since we first started and would like to save other microschool founders considerable time and effort so they can get up and running quickly.

Toward that end, check out this article we wrote: 7 East Steps to Get Your Microschool Up and Running - Fast!

One of the main steps is to decide what kind of school model you'd like to use.  Are you just wanting to use traditional school model?  Or do you want to take advantage of this opportunity to do something different, something better?  Maybe something more meaningful to your specific group of kids?  Maybe more authentic learning that is not constrained by common core and standardized testing?  There is incredible freedom and it can be exciting to think of the possibilities!  At the other end of that, though, it can feel daunting.  Fear not, there are resources out there to guide you.

If you're focused on teens and/or tweens and are attracted to Inspired Learning Academy's self-directed learning model, we are introducing toolkits to support you in setting up your own Inspired Learning Pod

A Glimpse

The Inspired Learning Cycle is the foundation of the Inspired Learning Pod Toolkit.

Compared to the traditional lecture-study-test cycle, the Inspired Learning Cycle models real-life adult learning and prepares kids for self-efficacy as an adult.
