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
