 I feel like I can not say this enough, but thank you for everything you do! While reading the newsletter I started to cry. Our family is so happy that we found Chavitos for A - and one day our little ones. There is no other place that takes the time like this, and cares so deeply. We are so grateful to be a part of the Chavitos Family.  "

K-8 Program

Our K-8 program is organized like a co-op. A homeschool co-op is a group of families who learn together and work cooperatively to achieve common goals. Co-ops can be organized around academics, social time, the arts, activities, crafts, service work, special projects—or some combination of these.

 We're focused on Whole-person education. We Offer:

Academics

Math, Science, English Language Arts (ELA).

These are broken into K-3 and 4-8 grade classes.  (including movement, cleanup and closing circle)

Electives

  Art, Marimba, Music, Cooking, Nature Play, Spanish

Some classes are whole group and others are broken into smaller grade levels.

For example we have a higher science class grades 4-8 twice a week.  

Summer Fun

Field games, Imaginative play, Connecting with Nature, Exploring with friends.

We will offer weekly registrations for wholesome summer fun! 

June 24- August 23.   9am -2pm.   Ages 5-12.

Location TBD

​Sample Chavitos K-8 Daily Rhythm from 2023-2024

Farm Chores, Spanish, Social Justice, Cooking, Field games and Gardening are taught whole school K-8.  Science is taught as a whole group three times a week on M/W/F and twice a week those concepts are expanded and elaborated in a higher level science class for grades 4-8.  

Academics are broken into two groups of K-3 and 4-8.  All academics are differentiated through 1-1 conferences, whole group and small group lessons.  Each child's academics is highly differentiated depending on their needs, interests and what they are ready for. We use Montessori principles to do guided reading and math.
