Enki Virtual Community School
Live instruction from a professional teacher, peer interaction, and flexibility: Enki Virtual Community School is the perfect fit for families seeking or needing a homeschool option for their middle schooler that is proven, personal, and practical.
While others were forced into digital/remote learning due to the pandemic, we began our Virtual Community School over five years ago as a way to bring middle school homeschooling to the next level. It is designed to combine homeschooling with peer interaction, take pressure off of parents by utilizing live instruction from senior Enki teachers trained and skilled in online instruction methods, and do so in a flexible manner. Our program, detailed here, covers all subject areas: Humanities, Language Arts, Math, Science, and the Arts for grades six, seven, and eight/nine. We utilize video conferencing software and digital textbooks.

Middle Schoolers Need Peer Engagement
For many homeschooling children, the peer needs of this stage in life bring some challenges. From a developmental point of view, this is unavoidable – and good news; the 11 to 15 year old is pushing to find his or her own power, and part of that is a shift of focus to peers. As well, everything within the child is, rightfully, pushing to step away from parents. To meet this need, and yet support the beauty of schooling at home, we offer our peer live-online program. Learn more about the “why’s” and “wherefore’s” of our approach to Junior High schooling.

* For your homeschool credit, Enki will provide you with a Course Description, Verification of Completion (assuming regular attendance and completion of work), and an evaluation. To date, once submitted, these have always been accepted for credit by every state and province where application has made, both in the U.S and across Canada. Some states will also ask that you submit a portfolio – for this, you simply photograph the student’s good book – made in class – and send that in digitally. Historically, these have not only been accepted, but are routinely greeted with much enthusiasm!
