Homeschool Science Enrichment Program

The Phinizy Center homeschool program has been developed with your family’s needs in mind! Our educators have designed a unique program for children and youth who are in kindergarten through 12th grade. All field trip subject matter will be age and developmentally appropriate, and students will be grouped by age.

Our program is broken down into two separate semesters, each consisting of five sessions with a different topic every month. Sign up for the monthly series that works best, meeting either Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday. All sessions run from 10:00am to 12:00pm and tend to be the 2nd week of the month, but can vary.   

It is $50 per student per semester plus a $2 credit card fee. Registration for fall and spring semesters are separate. If you want to study with us for both semesters, be sure to register for the second semester when it opens. Register early as each group will be filled on a first-come first-served basis and it fills fast.

Do your homeschool students have younger siblings? 

We have a session designed just for younger siblings. The cost is just $30, plus a $1 credit card fee! This session will keep your 2 to 4 year olds engaged while their older siblings participate in our regular program. An adult is required to  accompany the toddler. If you have a toddler, you should also check out our Puddle Ducks program!


Register and then join us August 7th, 2023 from 10am to 12pm for our drop-in Homeschool Open House! Check-in at the picnic pavilion at the front by the silos. Meet some of the homeschool instructors and get a tour of our facilities.

We group students based on learning level, so ask what grade they are in when you register. Generally, ages and grades correlate as 5-6=K-1st, 7-8=2nd-3rd, 9-10=4th-5th, 11+=6th and up. However, please choose the grade level you believe your child is truly performing at.

If you are having trouble registering, please email Due to popular demand, most groups are already full. However, we are keeping a waitlist so please let us know your child’s birthday, grade level, and which days you would be able to attend.
