Providence Hybrid Academy
Providence Hybrid Academy (PHA) strives to provide the best of both the homeschooling and private schooling worlds.
Students spend two days a week on campus and three days a week at home.
PHA parents legally school at home, which allows for a great deal of specialization to each child's needs, very efficient learning time, and abundant time for play and other activities.
On school days, PHA provides two full days of instruction in everything from math and reading to artist and composer and nature study.
PHA provides guidance for home days in the form of curriculum recommendations and weekly emails.
PHA's philosophy of education is informed by Charlotte Mason's work and there is an emphasis on outdoor time (an hour per day), Nature Study and the arts, as well as on short lessons and developmentally appropriate academics.
