Using these systems, you will be more confident, set yourself and your children up for homeschooling success, AND watch your children learn and THRIVE.

I really do want you and your child to have a positive homeschooling experience, so if you chose the Lifetime Academy Membership, you get access to any new resources I add in the future, too! How COOL is that?

  • Learn why you can’t cover it all (BTW-public schools don’t either), but there is ONE THING you can do that is even MORE important.

  • Get access to The Unit Study Planning Formula for a step-by-step guide to creating your own unit studies customized for your child’s interests and learning needs.

    • How exactly does this work?

      Once we receive your payment, you will be sent instructions to set up your user name and password. You can view the ecourse videos and resources in any order you wish.

    • Is this a curriculum?

      No. Thrive Homeschooling Academy is a collection of online classes for homeschooling parents. Through these e-courses, parents learn how to choose and use resources for maximum learning opportunities for their children. You can use what materials you already have. You will learn methods for selecting optimal resources that are just right for your child. This will save you time and money for the remainder for your homeschooling journey.

    • When do classes start?

      Courses are ready for you to start as soon as admin verifies your payment – typically within 24 hours or less.

    • Which grade levels do you prepare parents to teach?

      Currently, our Academy is designed for parents of students functioning between toddlerhood and grade 5. We do not recommend the Academy for Homeschooling Parents of middle school or high school functioning students. However, those parents are welcome to register for subscriber exclusives on and post homeschooling questions on our Facebook page for community and support

    • Who can use my membership?

      Your membership covers any adults living in your household. Your membership also extends to the biological and step-parents of your homeschooling child. Please note that you will share one user name and password per membership purchased. Your IP addresses are track-able. If this privilege is abused, Thrive Homeschooling reserves the right to terminate your membership without refund.

    • What is your refund policy?

      If for any reason you are not 100% satisfied with your purchase, I will refund your money up to 14 days after your purchase.

    • Can courses be purchased individually?

      Courses can not be purchased individually at this time. We apologize for any inconvenience.

    • If these resources are top-quality, then why offer them at such a low price?

      Business coaches have recommended that I price this Academy between $1500-$2500. However, I do not believe many homeschoolers can afford that.

      In keeping with the mission of helping as many homeschoolers as I can, it is my goal to keep these resources affordable.

      Whenever you join the Academy, you can access all e-courses AND all future e-courses for a one-time LIFETIME fee.
