Banyan Tree Compass Academy is a unique, private homeschool program that provides support and individual accommodations for success. Through our partnership with Acellus, we offer an accredited blended curriculum for students who need flexibility, advanced placement, or special education, filling the gaps in academics, and getting to the root of learning problems. A combination of online learning, teacher-led instruction, and individual or small group classes provides individual choices. With over 250 courses for students in 1st through 12th grade, including AP and special education, we find the combination that is right for your child.
Each student has different learning needs. Some of our students experience anxiety, social skills problems, learning problems, or medical needs. Others need flexibility due to sports or career demands that make attending a traditional school impossible. Families who travel or move frequently can benefit from consistency in learning with this program.
You may have considered homeschooling because your child does not thrive in a traditional learning environment, but the thought of doing it your self is overwhelming. Compass Academy is here for you. With several options to meet family and student needs, we can develop a plan to accommodate minimum or maximum support and distance learning.
Banyan Tree Compass Academy provides students with a full time homeschool program as well as part time support:
Banyan Tree provides you with all the necessary curriculum (K-12) through our partnership with Acellus. We provide credential teachers, who ensure that the student finds success with grade-level curriculum which can be customized to accommodate for learning differences.
If your child is already enrolled in a homeschool program, but you see a need for additional support in certain classes, we can develop an individualized program. It could mean taking one of our online classes, or joining other students for small group instruction and projects.
For either of these options, you can choose to have on-site support anywhere from 1 hour per week to 6 hours per day. We will work with you to meet your child’s specific needs.
Our Compass Academy Learning Centers offer a “whole child” approach to learning problems including dyslexia, auditory processing, ADHD and Executive Functioning. Located in Mira Mesa, Point Loma and Encinitas we find the root of the learning problem and work to correct it. Building relationships with students and families, we become part of the team that supports student success.
Combine one of our Homeschool programs with our specialized services to improve the student’s abilities to learn, while keeping up with age appropriate curriculum and filling in academic gaps.
