If it’s not a school, not a homeschool provider, not an after-school program, not a homeschool co-op, what is it then? What is Abot Tala High?
It’s a community specifically designed for non-traditional learners. Abot Tala High offers classes based on the teens’ interests and requests.
But unlike school, there are no grades, report cards, certificates. Unlike the typical grade school and high school, you can choose the classes to attend based on your interest and curiosity. Unlike school, there is no curriculum except the one you make yourself together with your mentor.
Now that we’re online, we have daily interest-led classes available every hour from 9am-4pm, Mondays to Thursdays, so it’s definitely not for those looking for after-school activities.
Abot Tala High is not a homeschool co-op, nor is it a homeschool provider, but we do have a homeschool support partner, Gopala Learning Haven.
If we have clarified what we’re not, what are we then? Three main things we offer:
- One-on-one mentorship
- Personalized learning through classes you choose
- Collaborative learning within a vibrant & supportive community
More about our classes:
Teens tell us what classes they want to have and mentors tell us what they want to teach. It goes through a voting process so every 8 weeks, we come up with a rich and varied array of classes that change as the needs of our community change.
