All New: Winter Workshops at Compass!

Compass has a solution for those cold, gray days between New Years and the start of winter classes! This year, Compass is excited to present Winter Workshops at our new learning center in Herndon. Winter Workshops are 5-day programs on special topics that we don’t have during our regular academic year. Winter Workshops are offered as small-group, in-person experiences, like camps, the week of January 4 or January 11. Registration is open to the public: all students, whether homeschoolers and schooling-from-home, are welcome to register. A 10% early registration discount is offered through December 18. Workshop sizes are small, between 4-5 (minimum) and 8 (maximum) students. Compass’s COVID policy will be in effect.
