Workspace in the Sky is open year round, and parents can convene, host events, meet, create classes and interact on the platform anytime. Workspace Education, our onsite location is open in concert with traditional schools. We start our academic year in the Fall, the day after labor day and end mid June.

We have a summer session, and have camps and popup weeks in between our five academic sessions.

You do not need an accredited transcript to go to college. All of our learners get accepted into college, in fact many of them complete dual enrollment classes gaining college credit and highschool credit at the same time. The top colleges are looking to see if a student has applied themselves and are working to their full capacity, and achieving at the highest level available.
Where you are accepted is primarily a result of how much a learner has applied themselves. The application process requires a few extra steps, as parents will be required to explain their homeschooling methodologies, and the learners will need to take standardized tests in most cases to demonstrate their ability to do college work. We do not stress college as the only pathway forward, however most of our learners leave Workspace with a strong direction and desire to enter a particular college. Colleges where our learners have chosen to attend: Tufts University, Kenyon College, Carnegie Mellon, Connecticut College, St Agnes, University of Denver, University of Hawaii, Wheaten College, Ny Visual Arts.

We are working on a seamless transition, using technology from being in person at Workspace to being fully online, and experiencing meaningful connections with families across the globe.
Colearning families combine the way they learn, live and work to create the balance and maximize their families’ happiness and fulfillment together. It is about creating schedules and learning experiences that work with the families schedules, lifestyle and needs of each individual family. All family members have a voice, all family members are lifelong learners and all family members benefit from having a supportive, knowledgeable community to operate in and share resources with.
Learning occurs anywhere, all the time. It is what humans do! It enriches the soul, and motivates continued effort to showcase what you have created. Children enjoy engaging with the community, showing what they have been working on and what they have cocreated with others. Colearning promotes collaboration and authenticity. It links self worth to contribution to the community.
