What People Are Saying

 
  • “My 10-year-old son has been attending Compass Classes on and off for over 2 years now, and I can’t say enough about the quality of classes and instructors Jenny and her crew put together. I like to describe it as a college for kids, where kids are allowed to pursue a variety of interests and subject matter that they won’t get elsewhere – from languages to technology/science classes and computer programming to stage combat. And, the community of parents is welcoming and helpful. Several times these parents have helped me out with wonderful advice when I was in a bind. Overall, a great enriching educational and support network. (A.M. Haymarket)
  • “I’m so very grateful that when Jenny Grove-Bradshaw created Compass Homeschool Enrichment that she not only envisioned great academic classes, but also great events. I love knowing that my kid is not missing out on things like the Science Fair, Valentine’s Day exchange, Chess Tournament and Field Day while we homeschool. I really can’t say enough about how much Wednesdays are a highlight of our week, both for my son and for myself. We’ve forged great friendships, had a great time and learned so very much. I can’t imagine life with Compass. (K.B., Alexandria)
  • “On a personal note, I wanted to thank you for all your work in providing opportunities for the homeschool community. We pulled <child> out of school when he was in kindergarten because the environment was too stimulating. Later we found out that he had issues with sensory processing. For <child> this meant he could not tolerate loud, unexpressed noises such as fire drills, other kids talking at once and clapping. In fact, clapping sent him screaming out of any event or room. There was time we thought he would not be able to participate in a classroom or in any type of group competition. We came to the bee just expecting/hoping that he would just be comfortable enough to participate. Watching him at the bee not only participating but enjoying himself was a very emotional experience for us. The classes and experiences he has had at compass have had a significant impact on his development and growth and we want to thank you for being part of that. (U.U. Herndon)
  • “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)
  • “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)
  • “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)
  • “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)
  • “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)
  • “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)
  • “Both kids loved the whole day. Me, too. What a wonderful thing you have done for our whole community!” S. M. (Herndon, VA)
  • “Thank you so much for the incredible job coordinating and setting up Compass Classes, and congratulations on the first day!” E. B. (McLean, VA)
  • “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)
  • “Yes, thanks – it was so much fun to see everyone – and it was all so perfectly organized.” S. S. (Vienna, VA)
  • “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)
  • “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)
  • “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)
  • “Thanks for setting this whole thing up. Just amazing! This has been a wonderful addition to the NoVA homeschooling community.” A.H. (Leesburg, VA)
