TSD's Homeschooling familes are awesome!

Interested in learning more about TSD's activities for Homeschooling students and families? Use the form below and we'll be happy to fill you in!

At TSD, we love our homeschooling families and truly enjoy crafting individualized program instruction designed to meet personal or scholastic and physicial fitness goals. Decades worth of TSD's homeschooling families are proof in the pudding that Alexandria depends on us as a partner, friend and colleague. Because of our very large and well equipped gym, our gymnastics instruction is the big hit with Homeschoolers -- it's the perfect place to learn some skills in a safe environment while bouncing off the walls, floors and occasionally eachother!

TSD offers the following physical fitness experiences for our Homeschoolers. The following are classes that are perfect for our Homeschoolers -- what's great is that some are available during the day and others in the evenings and weekends, making for the perfect fit for your family's busy schedule.

TSD's homeschooling families keep up a hectic schedule and we're right there with them every step of the way. Homeschooling criculiums require specific teaching requirements and that's why TSD works directly with instructors, often a family member, to determine the perfect learning environment. That puts your child first every step of the way -- ensuring each learning opportunity can be maximized -- and, fun!

Here's something cool; we bring homeschoolers together for great socialization opportunities and to create action-packed classes that are competitive, creative and cost-effective. In fact, many of our homeschoolers share the same Cover or Umbrella School and TSD's familarity with those schools, their neighborhoods and their families is a big plus for both students and parents.

Homeschoolers are often connected by the same Cover or Umbrella School - by virture of having served the area for decades, TSD has great relationships with schools throughout the area and can help figure the best ways to achieve the required physical fitness requirements.

TSD subscribes to the Natural Learning Systems – the five natural learning systems which were developed by Barbara Givens which include the emotional, social, cognitive, physical and reflective learning systems. We love providing the social and physical aspects to the total learning process -- and, that's what makes TSD the perfect partner for your child's educational goals.
