The REALM offers a unique and innovative approach to what education can look like when an individual experience for each child is created based on their needs, their strengths and their goals. We provide authentic educational experiences that offer kids the ability to use their creativity, curiosity and passion to guide their learning.
Because we are not a traditional ‘school’, we offer an alternative educational experience for homeschooled children from a variety of backgrounds. Some children are ‘homeschooled’ through charter schools such as Sky Mountain or Golden Valley, while other children are homeschooled by their parents through a PSA. For more information on the various options for legally homeschooling, check out our How to Homeschool page.
Some of our kids come to The REALM all day, everyday, using our classes as the backbone of their homeschool education. In these cases, we customize an educational plan that creates the best possible daily/weekly schedule for each child and their families. Their schedule can consist of small group class experiences, tutoring, music lessons, and individual study exploration time and excursions.
Some students use The REALM to supplement an already robust homeschool program of their own design, taking only a couple classes on various days. We believe that kids benefit greatly from parental involvement in real world education. We encourage parents to take advantages of all that Los Angeles (and the world) has to offer as we help our kids learn through observation, connection and action.
Some students, who attend more traditional schools, come to The REALM after school to experience our creative and fun learning opportunities. They can also take advantage of our experienced teachers for tutoring or add private music lessons to round out their afternoon.
When ‘school’ is not in session, we offer zany and creative camps that offer ridiculous fun along with awesome learning experiences! We have summer camp, winter camp, and spring break camp, as well as camps on holidays that traditional schools are closed. Check out all of our camp info at our Camps page!!
