The Cozy Place Academy

We are a hybrid, one-room schoolhouse that offers homeschool support for parents by offering individualized and comprehensive educational classes. We aspire to incorporate Philippians 4:8 – whatsoever is lovely, pure, virtuous, and praiseworthy – into our teaching practices to help support parents in raising a generation of confident and responsible children with strong foundations in education, values, and faith.

The Cozy Place Academy offers a flexible learning environment where students can progress at their own pace. The curriculum is individualized and focused on preparing students for future employment, civic involvement, and pursuing personal goals and interests. It is not based on one specific educational method but a combination of varied programs that we find superior. Students will receive a comprehensive education in history, literature, sciences, social studies, leadership, Bible, and home economics.

Above all, we believe that the parent’s right to be an integral force in their child’s education is first and foremost, and that children are ultimately accountable to their parents and to God for their learning and behavior. We are here to support parents in the education of their children in any way we can.

Our academy uses a multi-age, competency-based approach to education and instruction. All students progress based on mastery of levels rather than by grade or age level. They will learn through small group instruction as well as self-guided learning. Individualized assignments are given at each student’s academic level.

What We Do

The Cozy Place Homeschool Academy is a homeschool support organization seeking to assist families in their homeschool endeavors. Although we have a drop-off component to our program, students are required to fill the rest of their homeschool hours at home. Our academy does not offer mathematics, grammar, or foreign language.

Our classes take place Mondays-Thursdays with electives on Fridays. We focus on social studies/history, literature study, and science. A full list of classes is below along with pricing and their schedule.

Literature Study: Includes reading and analysis of specific books and their authors, time period, geography, and underlying themes. Students will be writing book reports and analysis on the books they read which will incorporate some spelling and vocabulary. Handwriting (cursive), oration, and dictation are also practiced during this period.

Wednesdays & Thursdays 11:00-12:00

Social Studies and History: Bible-based curriculum focused on principles of freedom, God, civics, character, and traditional principles of government. History spans from ancient history to modern history, stopping at different points each year for an in-depth unit study. Students will build their own timeline of history and will be required to write an end-of-year research paper based on what they have learned. For the 2024/25 season, we will be utilizing From Adam to Us curriculum from Notgrass.

Pricing

 

We require an annual $25 registration fee per student to reserve the student's spot for the upcoming school year. This fee is non-refundable. You can register here.

Books and materials: This fee depends on the level of the student and whether they are attending both regular school days and electives or just one or the other. The exact fee will be determined after placement testing and any AP class selections. Every effort will be made to make this fee as affordable as possible. Books and materials for both regular and elective classes will be less or equal to $200 per year. This covers all books and learning materials. At your student’s level evaluation, parents will be directed as to what curriculum materials to buy. If parents already own the materials required, this fee will go down or will be waived.

Tuition: $1,000 per school year.

Elective Cluster (12 weeks-full school year/2 semesters) $200 – $600 per school year.
