NEW! Compass Summer Workshops: Registration Opens Tomorrow (5/24)

New for Summer 2023…Compass has added dozens of short Summer Workshops for June, July, and early August! Most are one or two half-day programs that families can fit in and among other summer plans. For those who will have Virginia K-12 Learning Acceleration Grants and must spend $750 by August 15, ALL Summer Workshops qualify to be paid by grant funds. Read the Compass webpage on how to use these grants for summer workshops, fall classes, or private tutoring. Of course, families may also pay directly with personal funds. Students who are homeschooled, soon-to-be homeschooled, former Compass students, and those who attend conventional or virtual school settings are welcome to enroll in Summer Workshops. Many workshops are part of a multi-week series, but registration is by single-session so families can mix-and-match. Look for some brand-new, innovative workshop themes including:
