A World Class Custom K-12 Education Provided By SIGN Enrichment
In the early days of education, only wealthy families could afford to have a governess come to their home and provide custom and tailored education to their children. Now we get to provide that for YOU!
INTRODUCING: SIGN Enrichment Virtual Programs!
A comprehensive, inclusive program to help your child meet and exceed their goals.
We cover the core subjects of English, Math, Science, and Social Studies.
Plus high school students have access to early college!
Why are we so passionate about school?
School should support your child's educational goals, not hold them back!
Hi! I'm Ms. Beth, and the guy below me is Mr. Fleener, and for as long as I can remember, I've always wanted to be a teacher. I have been teaching all different subjects for our sensory impaired clients for over 18 years. The last 6 years I have been working with families to custom design homeschool curriculum for children with special needs and help their typically developing siblings too. The last three years I have been helping homeschooling families choose and implement curriculum as well as monitoring their children's progress. I have also been making customized college degree plans for high schoolers to get their AA or BA and a high school diploma at the same time!
Mr. Fleener has been teaching sign language to all age groups for over 15 years both in person and online and has tons of experience as a tutor in core subjects too. Now, we get to teach YOUR child online! We can't wait!!

You'll absolutely love our
Our live sessions have an actual adult instructor with real-life school friends! In that sense, it’s similar to a local school, but it’s even better because your student gets individualized academic attention, a method that local schools don’t have the means to support. Our core curriculum allows your child to work at their own level and go at their own pace. It's great for children who are a bit behind as well as those who are advanced learners.
Some resources we use include:
Kids A-Z (Raz Kids)
(These are some of the same high quality programs used by school districts!)
We use the best curriculum possible in our program, which is a combination of learning on your own and learning through group activities. In as little as 12 hours per week, the developmentally appropriate activities will prepare your child for the next grade! How? Local schools, on the other hand, require students to sit through parts they already know because their neighbor does not, or the teacher teaches at a slower pace to assist students who find that subject more difficult than others. Attention can be a problem if the pace is too slow. If it is too fast paced, learning is missed, making it more difficult to learn content that is built on that foundational knowledge. Students in our program take as much time as they need to process and learn. As a result, they may move faster in areas where they excel, giving them more time to work on areas where they need more time. Best of all, they have time to play and enjoy life.
Our tuition rates are affordable!
Our core program is only 4 days a week!
Your children will receive all of their core subjects in just four days per week, leaving Friday and Saturday free for other activities, such as sports or other interests. The best part? This is a private program, so you can start now! There is no need to wait for your school district to figure things out. We will monitor your children's progress so you don't have to. Our program is also year-round, so you don't have to worry about your child losing progress over the summer! And if you want to go on a 2 week vacation in the middle of the school year, that is perfectly fine! We work with you to meet your child's educational needs and goals.

I HAVE ANSWERS!
If you think of a question I haven't answered yet, feel free to reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Yes! Our program is designed to be inclusive. If your child has a speech issue or autism, is non-verbal or semi-verbal they are welcome. Our classes are also good for children who are hard of hearing, visually impaired, or have sensory processing issues. We will assist you in getting your child evaluated by your local school district and having an IEP created if you wish. If your child already has an IEP (Individualized Educational Plan) then we will do our best to support their goals. Every student has a custom educational plan and degree path that is written with and for them so everyone can be on the same page to best support the student.
No. You do, however, need to log your child into the online classroom at the start of each class, but then you can either stay or do other things you need to do. Older children can log themselves into class and we will work with your child to help them remember to sign into classes.
No, once your child is logged in we will take over and help them with their work. Our curriculum is designed to be hands-on and self-contained with independent learning for core subjects, so there is no need for parents to supplement additional curriculum during the day.
No. There are no supplies required. We will let you know when we recommend supplies. Your child should have access to paper and writing utensils. And they will need a working computer to access sessions and independent work. We also highly recommend access to a printer (Epson Ecotank is our favorite brand and we highly recommend it.)
No. There are no other costs required to participate. We do offer add on services but they are not required.
We are using online websites to track your children's core learning so they don't need to fill out the endless worksheets and workbooks that other programs have. We do provide printable manipulatives and activities that are optional and having access to a printer is highly recommended ... our focus is on real, social interaction between an amazing instructor (that's US!) and a small class of amazing friends.
We are monitoring the programs your child is using so we know what they need to work on and can help to reinforce concepts in live sessions and provide individual help as needed.
What if my child struggles with socializing or following behavior norms?
After 18 years of teaching, I think I've seen just about every type of child there is. I'm excited to work with your child and help him or her have a wonderful experience!
You'll need internet access and a laptop or desktop computer. If you are worried about your child having access to non-school related websites, we offer a locked down Chromebook that you can rent from us. Your child will only have access to websites that we allow. If you sign up your child for another educational program we can add that website access to the child's laptop on request.
Yes. We will provide complete technical support.
We use Google Meet, a free platform. The links we use to join our online classroom are exclusive to our families so no one else can access the online classrooms. Plus, our online classroom is monitored by an instructor at all times when in use.
Absolutely! After signing up, you'll join our private Facebook group of amazing enrichment families. We're super supportive and excited to have you join us!
