About Our School:

​Boulder Explore is a full day of enrichment for students who are homeschooled.  Our teachers are all highly qualified in their content area. We explore topics in Visual Art, Dramatic Arts, and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) through engaging, hands-on activities and relevant experiences.



Program Characteristics:
  • Our curriculum is facilitated through a primary learning event that occurs one day per week.
  • We host Meet-ups and field excursions that may be attended by both parent and student.
  • We offer blended learning experiences using an online environment to allow parents to extend their child’s learning beyond the enrichment day.
  • Families maintain their status as the primary school and retain responsibility for all other content.
  • We also offer several opportunities for parents to add to their skill set through collaborative events and workshops.

Mission statement:
​Create, Collaborate, and Grow!

Boulder Explore is a dynamic, student-centered inclusive learning community designed to enrich and support home school education. The vision of Boulder Explore is to be an innovative model for family-centered education that recognizes the importance of both individual and group learning for school-age children.​

The homeschool provides the content for skill development in literacy and numeracy while we engage students in discovery, practice, and inquiry in Visual Arts, Dramatic Arts, and STEM studies. Typically, these are the most challenging for homeschool families to offer.  We value creativity, collaboration, hands-on experiences, and growth.
