School @ Home

Enjoy all the benefits of homeschooling,
without all the work.

Now enrolling for Winter/Spring 2021.

Homeschool, simplified.

With School@Home, we’re offering a convenient and highly effective approach to live, online homeschooling for K-8 students. We handle the heavy lifting so you and your student can better enjoy the act of learning.

More Personal Attention

Your student can get the attention they need with private tutoring and classes with low student-to-instructor ratios. Plus, a dedicated team of counselors is always on hand to help you navigate homeschooling.

Highly Engaging Experiences

Small class sizes, more hands-on learning, and celebrity “field trips” result in a higher level of engaged learning. And as classes include kids from across the country, your student’s expanding worldview is like extra credit.

Incredibly Easy

From enrollment to accreditation support to IEP assistance, we’re here to help every step of the way. And because we handle the instruction and scheduling, School@Home is so much more than homeschooling.

Structured, yet Flexible

Our structured curriculum and personalized learning plans meet your student where they are. While our enrichment classes give your student more chances to learn what they want, however they want to learn it.

School@Home classes are very engaging. Our 1st grader is always participating, constantly answering and asking questions. Fabulous program with a remarkably reasonable tuition rate!

The School@Home Experience

Why choose School@Home?

Free Consultation

We start with a conversation, not a credit card. One of our helpful education consultants will discuss the needs and goals of your student and answer any questions.

Informed Class Placement

With the help of our adaptive assessments, we’ll find the right class and the best educators for your student—whether they need some extra support or an extra challenge.

The Virtual "Bus Stop"

Your student starts off each day in the Learning Lab, where they can easily access everything they need for their day. And that means you get more time for your day.

Engaging Classes

Small class sizes, hands-on learning, and classmates from across the country mean each School@Home class is highly engaging.

1-on-1 Tutoring

Private tutoring provides highly personalized instruction to focus on the skills your student needs to thrive.

Instructor/Tutor Communication

Class instructors and private tutors are able to work together to ensure your student’s learning plan is always current.

Student-Focused Learning

Assignments, progress reports, and a continually updated learning plan help ensure your student always gets the right support.

Celebrity Field Trips

Unique to School@Home, your student and their class can meet and learn from celebrity experts.

Progress Reports

Stay up to date with your student's progress and get insights into their education on a weekly basis.

Built-In Support System

A dedicated academic counselor and an accreditation consultant are always available to help with just about anything.

Put your trust in the best educators.

Matching your student with the right educators starts with having only the best educators to choose from. We do this by setting a high bar—vetting every applicant through tutoring simulations, academic and personal background checks, and interviews.

What we look for in an educator:

  • Exceptional teaching and communication skills
  • Expertise and experience with virtual learning environments
  • Subject matter expertise, including experience supporting learning differences
  • Adept at identifying why students struggle
  • Ability to keep students engaged
  • Experience customizing assignments to unique needs, including 504 plan accommodations

Questions? We have answers.

Why did Varsity Tutors create School@Home?

As the state of education continues to change, we developed School@Home to fill a growing need among parents looking for quality education. As a leader in online education, with over 40,000 carefully vetted educators, we realized we had an opportunity to help countless families “do school better.”

With School@Home, we can provide a flexible, personalized, and engaging solution for families that meets them where they are. We can work with families who'd like to replace traditional school but don’t want the burden of doing all the work to homeschool.

How much does it cost?

School@Home is as flexible as your needs require. Pay as you go, month by month. Upgrade or downgrade your plan whenever your needs change. And you can cancel at any time.

$1,100/month

Grades K-5 Classes Only

Grades 6-8 Classes + Tutoring

How many hours of 1-on-1 and School@Home classes come with each program?

All hours listed below are per week.

What is the Classes Only program?

We offer a School@Home Classes Only program that shares all the same benefits of the normal program, but does not include any 1-on-1 hours. Any 1-on-1 tutoring would have to be purchased separately, a la carte.

How do I get started?

If you are ready to enroll, or have further questions, you can call one of our Educational Consultants at (800) 915-4957. To hold your spot in our program, we require that you make a deposit equal to the cost of the first month of the program you select. This deposit is fully refundable. You can call the same number to make the deposit.

How much work do I need to do as a parent?

We can provide live instruction along with planning, scheduling, homework assignments, and progress reporting. We can even help you explore your state’s requirements for homeschooling. This is homeschooling for parents who don’t have time to homeschool.

Does this cover an entire school year or just one semester/two quarters?

You choose. We’ll work with you to ensure you get the right level of help for your family’s needs.

How does accreditation work?

Both packages come with an accreditation consultant who can work with you to ensure your student satisfies all homeschooling requirements specific to where you live.

School@Home is not an accredited school.

How do you know what is best for my student?

When your student completes our adaptive assessments, we can identify their needs, strengths, and weaknesses. From there, we use our smart matching algorithms to identify the best educators and classes for their specific needs. It’s a lot of science and a little bit magic.

Who are the educators?

All online tutors and educators go through our rigorous vetting process, and only a tiny fraction who apply are ultimately chosen. Why are we so selective of our educators? Facilitating outstanding instruction is at the forefront of our work, and this requires incredible educators.

Can my student start the school year in physical school and decide to switch to School@Home later?

Yes. If you begin in normal school and decide you want to move to the School@Home program, we can accommodate this transition.

What are important dates for the 2020-2021 School@Home year?
