Taking the Scenic Route

Savoring the Journey

Homeschool

We began homeschooling in the fall of 2007, after pulling Zane out of the local Kindergarten class.  In the spring of 2008 we officially registered with the state of Kansas as a “non-accredited private school” and named it “Ad Astra Academy”.

“Ad Astra” means “to the stars” and is part of the state motto:  “Ad Astra per Aspera”, meaning “To the Stars through Difficulty”. 

Although the day to day events of school will be a part of the regular blog, I wanted a space to put things like curriculum, essays, books (other than curriculum), and teaching techniques that have really helped Zane understand and use the material.

  • Zane's age
