Feeling overwhelmed by the prospect of the coming school year?

You're not alone.

We’ve spoken to hundreds of parents who fear their children will not receive an optimal education this year… or that their children’s health will be in jeopardy… or both.

Many more don’t know how they’re going to hold down their jobs, how to support their student with special learning needs, or how to protect the mental health and social aspect of their kids’ lives. Some are also concerned about inequities between more- and less-affluent communities.

WE HEAR YOU‐ AND WE ARE PREPARED TO MAKE THIS SCHOOL YEAR YOUR CHILDREN'S BEST EVER!

GOT QUESTIONS? WE HAVE ANSWERS

Can BrainStorm only help my children if they are enrolled in the school, or can a tutor supplement or replace the school curriculum if I wanted?

Your BrainStorm academic mentor will be capable of any of the above. If your child is enrolled in the school and you’d like our help with school work or creative supplementation or both, we can do it.

If you are disenrolling your children and prefer a homeschooling experience instead, we can spearhead that for you as well.

What is the maximum group size?

We can accommodate any size group of students.

Do all the students in our group have to be the same age?

Not necessarily. If that’s how the group has organized itself, great. If they’re mixing ages, that’s ok, too. We give families the maximum flexibility possible.

In cases where the ages are wildly distinct, we will discuss creative ways to make it work.

How will I know that my student's education is staying on track?

Through weekly check-ins, parents will have the opportunity to discuss progress with their appointed educational consultant.

If I run my own microschool with BrainStorm's help as a consultant, how much interaction is involved?

During the first several weeks, interactions will be significant and addressed on a case-by-case basis as plans are made & the system is designed.

Once the group is off to the races & the parents have been equipped to lead, weekly check-ins will settle into a once- or twice-weekly rhythm, as needed.

What subjects are commonly taught in microschools?

Each microschool is unique, so each solution will be uniquely suited to match.

The requests can vary from “just the core 4” to “please help with nutrition, phys ed, music, & art” to “please go above and beyond the school curriculum by leading nature studies, geography, foreign language, coding, etc.”.

Can you explain a little bit about program design?

We can help design all elements of the school-at-home/ microschool experience. That includes everything from making the physical space conducive to learning, to organizing a structured schedule & workflow, to identifying resources and strategies for engagement.

What about educational inequities? Does BrainStorm have any social initiatives related to school-at-home?

To ensure we create opportunities for those without the means to pay, BrainStorm has created the Pod-for-Pod Promise: with any purchase you make, we will donate the equivalent service to a family in need.

Additionally, discounts & scholarships are available for people with demonstrated financial hardship, first responders, and front-line health workers.

If the school year is handing you lemons...plant the seeds & grow an orchard!
Let's make the best of this situation... together.
