Micro-Schooling
(Stepping Stones & 1st-6th Grade)

Micro schooling is similar to the home schooling "pods" which cropped up in response to public school closures during the COVID pandemic. There is one primary difference; rather than parent-led, our micro-schooling program is managed and facilitated by professional, certified teachers. Micro-schooling is a wonderful option for homeschooling families as it allows for the outside expertise of a teacher, while meeting the desire of many homeschooling parents for their child to gain controlled exposure to a classroom environment and regular peer socialization. 

Mission Possible' s micro-schooling program allows students to receive superior education, one-on-one instruction and individualized lesson plans, in a comfortable learning environment from seasoned teachers.

Montessori Method for Elementary 

The elementary school child occupies what Maria Montessori called the “second plane of development.” Children at this stage are in a period of rapid intellectual growth as they develop the ability for rational thinking. Children want to know the how and why of things. Through exploration and experimentation, they discover the quantities and facts of the world. Self education is the mode through which the elementary children learn most effectively. 

During the elementary years, children explore the academic world in increasing depth through the related disciplines of mathematics, reading, penmanship, creative writing, research methods, art, music, science, botany, zoology, anatomy, history, geography, social/cultural studies, drama, and physical education; all is taught as parts and contributions to the whole. Multi-age classrooms and a spirit of cooperation rather than competition, allow children to grow emotionally and intellectually at their own pace.

  • Annual independent skills testing to track student's academic progress, mastery, and development

  • This programming is intended for families who have chosen to homeschool. We operate on an optional year-round schedule, with our 2022/2023 program running from June 2022 to May 2023.

Should you choose to participate only during a traditional school year cycle, our programming runs

August 2022-May 2023

  • Organized and facilitated by trained Montessori teachers with years of Montessori classroom experience. Our teachers have completed early childhood through upper elementary Montessori training.

  • We teach using Montessori methods and materials and cover CCSD standard academic subjects. Due to the small program size, we can personalize each enrolled students' teachings. 

  • Due to this being a homeschooling model, the parent remains the "director" of the enrolled student's education and must complete the "Notice of Intent " if this will be the first year of homeschooling. Parents also remain responsible for submitting the student's educational plan (we will be able to assist you with this component).
