Compass Homeschool Enrichment offers northern Virginia homeschool families a menu of high quality extracurricular and enrichment classes to supplement the core academic material taught at home. All classes are taught by qualified outside instructors who are subject matter experts and teach multiple levels of interesting, experiential classes in science, technology, languages, history, art, music, and more. Classes are taught in Oakton on Wednesdays in a 4-quarter, 30-week academic year. All classes are offered a la carte by quarter so homeschool families can mix and match for multiple siblings and try a topic without locking into a year-long commitment. Compass classes give students a taste of group learning in a classroom on a campus setting with like-minded homeschooled peers. Compass families also enjoy a warm, welcoming community that enjoys special activities, events, and academic clubs/contests in addition to regularly scheduled classes. Compass classes are organized by homeschool parents for other homeschool families. Compass Homeschool Enrichment program is a secular, inclusive program.

What People Are Saying

Red Diamond“We love it! This is our second session there and we will be returning in the fall. The instructors have been great and best of all, the campus is very nice and there are tons of opportunities for the kids to socialize and meet new homeschooled friends. The director is a homeschool mom herself.” J. K. (Ashburn, VA)

Red Diamond“My two boys just started taking Compass classes in March and positively love them! Everyone I have talked to thus far have had positive feedback as well.” B. M. (Berryville, VA)

“I have done much research trying to find additional school co-op types, or enrichment organizations, and they are all very fluid and not stable, or they are tied to very restrictive curriculum policies. Compass does not have these issues and I am sure it’s one of the reasons you have so many students taking so many different interesting classes!” P. S. (Herndon, VA)

Red Diamond“Thank you for initiating and managing a phenomenal resource for our local homeschooling families.  The classes were high caliber, and my son loved having time to learn and play with new friends, and I appreciated the guilt-free time to work on other projects. I have been homeschooling about 20 years and our family schedule did not always allow for any co-op type experience so I am very thankful he and I could participate these past few months.” J. B. (McLean, VA)

Red Diamond“I think one of the best features of Compass is their short 4 quarter versions, usually something like 7-8 weeks each ‘commitment’. Many places you have to commit for a whole year, some a half a year and be stuck with a teaching method/style, or maybe environment/setting unfavorable to your family/child in fostering their social/emotional/academic growth/self esteem. Compass is so short, that the risk is low. You only pay for 7-8 weeks. You can assess it each week as you go, observe your children and monitor situations. It’s worth the risk to try a class. Many of the classes are very good, some very impressive. You get to experiment and sample. I believe Compass will continue to be successful because of this 7 week marketing niche format.” D. G. (Sterling, VA)

Red Diamond“What I like about Compass vs. private school is that we can pick and choose what to teach at home, what to do on-line or in other settings, and then what to do at Compass. Because you sign up by the quarter, if something’s not working out, it’s easy to change. Compass has also been a big help with burn-out; being completely responsible for all aspects of your child’s education can be stressful.” A.H. (Leesburg, VA)

Red Diamond“My fourth-grade son LOVES Worlds of Music.  He has learned new aspects of musicianship in every class, and he retains them all week long, eagerly awaiting his next class.  He is having so much fun that I don’t think he even realizes how much he’s learning!” S. L. (Reston, VA)

Red Diamond“Both kids loved the whole day. Me, too. What a wonderful thing you have done for our whole community!” S. M. (Herndon, VA)

Red Diamond“Thank you so much for the incredible job coordinating and setting up Compass Classes, and congratulations on the first day!” E. B. (McLean, VA)

Red Diamond“My girls loved, loved, loved walking from class to class on their own, having lunch with friends, and giggling themselves silly in the algebra class. Furthermore, *I* LOVED chatting with fellow homeschool moms *ALL* day!!!!!!” K. A. (Falls Church, VA)

Red Diamond“Yes, thanks – it was so much fun to see everyone – and it was all so perfectly organized.” S. S. (Vienna, VA)

Red Diamond“You had all of your ducks in a row for a smooth start!!! Well done!! And the history program was FANTASTIC!!!!” K. S. (Ashburn, VA)

Red Diamond“I am so excited about what you are offering and my friend and I are hoping to get our Wednesdays to be all Compass!!! I am really loving your history alive, it has really shaped what we are doing with history. Each week the kids and I write a paragraph about the speaker and put our pic with the speaker on the page. It has been so fun to have this photo timeline of us with the historical figures, plus the kids are interested in writing a paragraph on what they experienced.” (Anonymous #1, Fall Survey)

Red Diamond“I am thrilled to find a secular environment where behavior standards are enforced. My kids are bright and ready to learn in a classroom setting and I am hoping that COMPASS will meet their needs. Great job so far! You have identified an underserved segment of homeschoolers in FFX county.” (Anonymous #3, Fall Survey)

Red Diamond“Thanks for setting this whole thing up. Just amazing!  This has been a wonderful addition to the NoVA homeschooling community.” A.H. (Leesburg, VA)
