School: An Overview of Distance Learning
All of the benefits of learning at home
with teacher support and full academic credit.
Enrollment in Oak Meadow School is an option for families who would like to receive full academic credit and the support of an experienced teacher during their home-based educational journey.
Oak Meadow School is an internationally accredited kindergarten through twelfth grade distance learning institution. We are also an Approved Independent School in the State of Vermont. According to the regulations in many states, when you enroll in Oak Meadow School, you may not need to file an Intent to Homeschool with the local school district. (We recommend that you check with your local Department of Education or homeschooling groups for specific information about your state's requirements.)
Enrollment in our school includes the following:
A Complete Curriculum for All Subjects
Our dynamic curriculum ensures that you are providing your child with a creative, well-rounded and academically complete education. Our curriculum is developed by professional educators and is closely aligned with a broad range of state standards as well as Oak Meadow's founding educational philosophy. In grades K-12, you will receive everything you need for a complete school year across all subject areas. Learn more about our curriculum.
Teacher Support and Evaluation
Our professional and caring teachers provide support, evaluation, and grading for assignments, projects, and tests. Our teachers strive to develop close relationships with their students and are available by both e-mail and telephone for the support you and your children may need. Many families choose to continue working with the same teacher over the course of several grades. The narrative evaluations and transcripts provided by your teacher become part of your child's official academic record.
Most enrollments can be processed within one week, and students can begin sending lessons to their teacher on their Start Date. We offer open enrollment, so each family is able to choose a Start Date for the ten-month enrollment period, giving you the flexibility to craft a school year schedule that works best for you. Learn more about the enrollment process.
Administrative Support Services
The administrative support staff works closely with our teachers and with our families to ensure a smooth beginning to each school term. Our registrar keeps complete records for each enrolled student, and because we are an accredited school, these official records may allow students to be recognized by their state as enrolled in a private school. In addition, it is possible to transfer these credits to other schools should the need arise. Learn more about our accreditation.
Guidance Counseling for High School and College
Many of our high school students plan to go on to college, and we offer a range of guidance services. Our guidance counselors can help direct you to SAT and ACT information and registration, or help you locate the appropriate preparation materials for these important exams.We offer consultation around school choices, provide letters of recommendation and official transcripts, and can help you navigate the college application process. Learn more about our high school program.
Oak Meadow's curriculum materials are available online as well. In grades K-8, enrollment provides exactly the same benefits, except that the curriculum materials are delivered online.
