Homeschooling is more than just sitting around your kitchen table filling out workbooks.  For most homeschoolers, it means community, family, friends, exploration, a place to strive, thrive, socialize and rejuvenate. We here at Different Directions open ourselves to a whole experience for the entire family

Different Directions was founded in 2009 by three homeschooling parents. We have grown to serve more than 180 families a year with over 40 classes, family events, parent support workshops, theatre productions, movie nights, teen programs including; T.A training and professional lecture series. We are a 501(C)(3) Charitable organization dedicated to facilitating socially conscious educational enrichment at low or no cost to the New York Tri State area.

We are a collective of teachers, artists and families that support the ideals of education being a joyful and adventurous journey.  All the classes at Different Directions are led by passionate teachers, dedicated to teaching students, where they are in their academic process. Great things happen when children feel they are in a safe environment where passion, imagination and creativity reign


Happy News

As many of you know last year we relocated to 47th street in the lower level of the Actors Temple. This September we are moving into the light.  The Temple has generously renovated the 3rd floor which will have two beautiful big rooms, new windows, office, storage space and a waiting area for parents. 

The students and I are also happy to announce the renovations on the Ramone Aponte Playground next door to the Actors Temple are completed. After watching with baited breath all winter, this June 2016, during our summer adventure camp we attended the dedication ceremony for the playground.  

We are all very excited about our upcoming season, old friends, welcoming new friends, new classes and new adventures.
