Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

American Family Education, full time academics

Students press from learning to read and write through to being able to self-direct their own education and start their own businesses or careers. All the core subjects are learned by using them for tools to achieve vital strengths like logic and reason, communication, and discernment.

Students progress based on maturity and mastery, NOT by age or time served.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth
Adults

Our elective programs feature talented individuals that offer to share to teach and inspire the students in their community. The topics of these classes vary greatly. Each elective we offer has intrinsic value beyond the skills being taught or practiced. Time is our most valuable commodity so students are encouraged to select opportunities within the available electives that will engender the attributes, skills and experience that support the development of that student’s individual purpose and goals. Electives are held outside of the core academic block, and either on or off campus.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

American Family Education is bringing back local control, leadership principles, family values, and mentorship into education.. eliminating the need for coersive, industrial model schooling.

Showing communities that education that benefits the student and family is more efficient and effective than the modern education model.

By purchasing the buildings and using them for community centers in addition to academic and elective opportunities, less money goes to overhead and more to those serving the individuals, allowing for the motivation to innovate and continually improve their services.

Parents of school age children are supported in becoming the main influencers of their children, allowing each student to be guided by the people who know them the best and love them the most. Teachers focus on inspiring instruction and leaders at the school can focus on strengthening the parent's skills.

In our current buildings we are very limited on space for the families that would like to participate, and with small programs the budget has little room for saving up to invest in a larger building.

We are specifically fundraising to purchase a much more appropriatly sized building (a vacant school) and use it to it's full compacity for community members of all generations! This larger program will allow us to save a small percentage to expand into the next community that is ready for American Family Education.

We have yet to establish the full community center model for lack of space, but we have used our current locations to their max compacity and made great connections in our community with groups that perfer to be where we are and use our building when it is available. (e.g. the organization Constitution in the Classroom has used our building for training their teachers for almost two years)
