Our second set of passengers have just boarded the Titanic! This morning during our first Homeschool session, students had fun learning about life aboard the Titanic and attempted to make their own unsinkable ship.

Due to the success of these monthly events, we began offering an afternoon session this month so that more students could enjoy the lessons. Our next Homeschool Day will take place on Thursday, May 23. The theme will be Trains & Railroads. Registration is open now!
