Landis Valley’s homeschool program is a great way to supplement your history lesson, with classes that meet the PA State & Homeschool Educational Standards. Held every Wednesday from February through mid-March, from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., the program consists of six individual classes, each with a different topic.
We have implemented a three year program. Each year, we will have 6 core themes: Open Hearth Cooking, Fiber Arts, Gardening, Folk Art, Historic Apparel, and Instructor’s Choice. Our classes will be based on these themes. While the core themes will remain the same, the actual class activities will change.
PLEASE NOTE: We are fully subscribed for the 2022 Homeschool classes. If you would like to get on our waiting list, please contact program coordinator Sheri Brown via email at: email@example.com
