Before registering for classes and clubs, be sure Village Home is a good fit for your family. We serve experienced homeschoolers as well as those exploring independent learning outside of traditional school for the first time. Some of our learners are also enrolled in an online charter school or an early college program. See Who Are VH Learners for more information.
There’s not one way to intersect at Village Home. Take one class, or fill up your days — it is up to you and your learner. We simply ask that you involve your children in the conversation about which classes to sign up for. Follow their interests and enroll them in classes they desire — we know that learning is effective and fun when the learner is able to choose their classes and own their learning.
Need more information? Schedule a tour, call (503) 597-9100, or email email@example.com.
In addition to weekly classes and clubs, we also offer a Day Program, one-on-one tutoring, competitions and bees, field trips, events, standardized testing services, travel programs, and more. Learn more about all of our programs here.
Important things to keep in mind when choosing classes and clubs:
- We have three 10-week terms. Most classes and activities are designed to run all year, in 3 terms of 10 weeks each. See calendar at www.villagehome.org for term dates. Most classes accept mid-year enrollment. Most classes meet for 60 minutes per week.
- Our classes are not for credit and we do not grade or test. The parent, as the primary educator, is responsible for tracking progress and assessing, if they so desire. Some classes have homework, and usually homework is optional. If you do not want to support homework between classes, please make class choices that do not include homework.
- Parents are considered education partners at Village Home. We are here to enrich your family’s education plans. Parents are encouraged to be in the classroom and on campus — this is a place for the whole family!
- Classes are lead by paid teachers, and have a base tuition of $110/term. Clubs are lead by volunteer parents and have a base tuition of $25/term.

1. How to Create (or update) Your Family Account
If you are new to Village Home, please click “Login” (above) and then “Create New Account” (Please note, we have a new system starting in 2019. If you previously had an account with us, you must open a new account.) Be sure to keep your account up-to-date; it helps us keep everyone safe. For assistance, please see the Registration FAQ.
2. Registration: Make Advance Requests and/or Register Online
For Fall: Registration may be on a request basis or live enrollment depending on when you visit our site. In order to accommodate the demand for spaces in our exciting classes, we are using a request-system for the first portion of our registration period. All requests made during the request period are treated equally and enrollments in over-requested classes are accommodated randomly. Requests that are processed into enrollments will be visible in your Parent Portal. After the request portion of our registration period has ended and requests processed, the system will be opened for live enrollment. Any spaces in classes will be offered online on a first-come-first-served basis through the Add/Drop period. Please see Advance Registration Requests for details. See calendar for registration related dates.
For Winter and Spring: If you are enrolled in a class in a current term, your seats in your current classes will be reserved for you in the next term automatically. This system insures that your learner won’t lose a spot in a class mid-year. If there are classes you do not wish to continue into the next term, simply request to drop it prior to the first day registration for the next term.
3. Adding or Dropping a Class
You may add/drop classes anytime between the opening of registration and the end of the add/drop period. The add/drop period is the first two weeks of the term. You must drop on or before the day of the second class meeting to receive a prorated refund/credit. After the add/drop period, there are no refunds for tuition and fees for dropped classes. Drop requests may be made online and are subject to approval. Adds may be made anytime through the add/drop period online.
