Homeschool Programs

(Pre-K through High School)

Our homeschool programs provide a rich and thorough life science education. Through hands-on encounters with our live animals, digital media (primarily maps, data charts, photographs, and short video clips), art projects, literature, games, science labs, outdoor exploration, and more, we learn biology in a fun, engaging, and meaningful way.

 

This fall, we are excited to explore our planet’s incredible biodiversity. What is biodiversity? Why is it important? How do we protect it?

 

Throughout the school year, we will meet or exceed the Colorado state life science standards.

Students must meet the age requirements by October 1, 2023.
