I am an unexpected homeschooling mom and your classes were [her] first online classes. At first I was very wary that they (really anything online) would be a reasonable solution for her, but they ended up being an overwhelming success. Athena’s made me realize I can do this whole homeschooling thing…at least for now 🙂
It was by-chance that we found Athena’s in our first fledgling month of homeschooling — and we thank our lucky stars! Now in our second year, Athena’s has become the backbone of our curriculum. Not only are the academic classes interesting, challenging and thought-provoking, the community we’ve found is so warm and welcoming. In fact, my 8-year old has decided to forgo a couple of in-person classes because he can’t stand the thought of missing Athena’s!
Thanks for running Athena’s– you guys are my refuge as I homeschool my 2 PGs!
Athena’s was an amazing find for us…He did other online classes, but his weekly hour at Athena’s was his favorite. He really loved his teacher and enjoyed the interaction with other kids in the virtual classroom, which is missing from many online classes. But most importantly, he was engaged intellectually. I highly recommend Athena’s Advanced Academy for highly gifted homeschoolers who want to interact in “class” with gifted students like themselves.
The instructors were very positive and cheerful and encouraging in all ways to the students. I found it easier to relax when my child was in the classroom because I felt the instructors were more understanding and accepting of the particular qualities linked to giftedness…[like] dyslexia, dysgraphia, etc.
What I especially liked about the course was how the teacher presented the information in the webinars. It was all very easy to understand. I also liked the activities and the friends.
I would like to thank you for helping us in raising our daughter through these years.
She has loved her experiences with you at Athena’s. They have been the perfect transition from the classroom…She has felt that the Athena’s environment is the best of both worlds; she can still learn with experts and true peers in a classroom, but doesn’t have to spend so many hours of her day to get that experience. She is free to move at her own pace and to pursue other passions and activities with the many hours that have been freed up by being able to learn at home and with Athena’s.… Read more
It was smart and fun! Every week there was great homework, and extra that was cool too! I will definitely be sign up for more classes!
It’s clear to me that [my daughter’s] experience at Athena’s is only one of two unqualifiedly successful educational experiences she has had. I wish I could just leave her in your hands all the time.
