Train up a child in the way he should go,
And when he is old he will not depart from it.
The Portals Program
Portals provides a literature-to-project based learning program so that anyone can foster a Christian education in a homeschool, cohort, or private school setting. We want to make it easy to start and support you as you go.
As a non-profit organization, Portals is able to offer all your lesson plans, project ideas, on-call support, professional development, and start up counseling starting at just $240 per school year. You receive the highest quality support for the most affordable price possible.
We assume that students can learn together, so we develop lessons that can be used across age levels. When you are homeschooling on your own, we'll help to connect you with other Portals families for field trips, events, and project days. Learners that connect across age levels develop healthy relationships - all essential for success and easily achieved in fellowship, cohorts, coops, and even in school settings.
Humans are designed to learn through narrative and story and everything we could possibly hope to learn about history, culture, society and humanity can be found in a book starting with the Bible. Portals builds off the reading, then provides question prompts, supplemental digital media, and projects to Read, Think, Do what they are learning.
Learning happens most effectively and efficiently when we are able to explore. When given opportunity to make choices, experience things for ourselves, ask questions and test hypothesis - it's practically impossible not to learn! Portals adds transformational experiences to each day of learning. Seek out your child's interest and encourage them to go for it.
If you are thinking about homeschooling or starting something new, you may ask 1) Do have have the knowledge, 2) Can I find the time, or even 3) I'm not sure if I can afford to do this. We're here to help you with all three! Today is the day to start a new journey. You have help, you have resources, and you can leverage Portals to reduce your costs. Don't wait, start now!
