Created by God, in the image of God, to answer the call of God
How do we prepare to answer that call?
Kaleo is a Christ-centered, creative community for homeschool students in grades K-12. Our unique, integrated approach is based on the time tested methodology of Charlotte Mason.
Educate the heart through community
Educate the mind through grace filled rigor
Educate the soul by connecting everything we know and are back to God.
All the things
Tell me about your Core classes
We focus on 5 core subjects:
These classes are taught from the voice of history partnered with a biblical worldview. Because of our historical integration, they are only offered as a group. We do not offer these classes individually.
*We teach history chronologically in 4 year rotations. This year we will be in the modern time period, starting with the Civil War and going through current history.
Our students are broken into groups by age and these groups are capped to keep them small.
What about Math and Science? And do you offer more in depth arts classes?
Due to Covid, the only EXTRAS class we are offering is high school economics on Wednesdays at 3:45. This is a 1/2 credit class and starts on January 20, 2021.
We are hoping to resume our other EXTRAS classes next fall.
How much does this cost?

Why the Arts?
Why would the Arts be core classes?
First, let me say, we value Math and Science! Many times, people assume we are just artsy people and don't value these essential subjects. Believe it or not, the Arts make those subjects more valuable! Research shows that music fires off the same areas of the brain that we use when solving spatial-temporal reasoning problems - in other words, music and math are best friends!
When archaeologists look at previous civilizations, they study the arts of the people. What did they create? What did they write? This helps us have a deeper understanding of people groups and history.
We also believe that we are made in the image of God and that God is the ultimate creator. Therefore, we are creative beings!
That means, that even for students who don't show a leaning towards the arts, they can still benefit in these areas:
Critical thinking skills
The value of teamwork
Creative problem-solving skills
An appreciation of the beauty in God's world.
While we are all creative, we are not all creative in the same ways. Exposure to different art forms helps us all to find that God designed part the we need to answer the unique call God has given to each one of us.
(And let's face it, theater at home is just not the same!)
When you say rigor...
Kaleo Academy is a full college prep program.
We don't skimp on academics, but we do believe there are a lot of ways to get there.
We believe education should be:
Fun and engaging
A feast of learning for our students.
Individualized for students
Moving our students towards great adults that appreciate academics AND the arts!
We believe education should NOT be:
Full of busy work
Subjects disconnected from each other
Measured by others accomplishments (God made your student unique!)
God and Community
God created us to be in community with Him and other believers. In fact, Jesus said that the most important thing we could do was love God with everything we have and the second was to love others!
That is why every subject we teach has a biblical worldview. We want to see God's story and our part in that story!
We know you want your child to have a faith of their own and we want to support them in that endeavor by providing an environment where they can explore their faith. A safe environment of like minded friends who will support them as they wrestle with big God questions and even doubts.
At Kaleo Academy, we hope they will make lifelong friends who will sharpen them and push them to be better humans!
