We offer a unique approach to teaching and learning, while not sacrificing the solid foundation of a core academic and creative education.
All Attic learners are registered homeschoolers in Washington State. This designation frees Attic kids from state required testing and mandated in-seat hours, and frees Attic teachers to fully support our core curriculum in a September-May, three-day-a-week schedule. Our classes are small, and our teaching is constructivist, often project-based, often collaborative, and always attentive to each child’s developmental needs.
In our three days together each week, we dive deeply into the core academic subject areas (math, reading, writing, science, and the social sciences). In addition, we believe that social-emotional education is as vital to life as academic education, and so it is a central thread of Attic curriculum.
Attic teens leave their high school years ready to pursue the course of their own choosing: college enrollment, unique gap year opportunities, and/or work experiences. Among our alumni, we count architects, teachers, journalists, entrepreneurs, engineers, computer programmers, public servants, musicians, writers, actors, dancers, artists, and humanitarians. More than that, however, we are proud of the empathy, independence, and self-knowledge Attic graduates universally possess.
