We understand that parents want to take an active role in their child’s education by choosing to homeschool. That’s why at Cottonwood we give you control. You get to choose the curriculum, the learning approaches, the extracurricular activities — all the pieces that make up your child’s holistic education. And we support you every step of the way. We pair you up with a credentialed homeschool teacher, offer hundreds of educational resources, and provide dozens of weekly activities. We infuse all of our school programs and educational offerings with Social Emotional Learning Foundations (SELF) to support the whole learner. We also include regular field trips, workshops and learning events that promote the goals of our Everybody Belongs group that lifts the voices of traditionally marginalized people. At The Cottonwood School, we connect you with a community of families pursuing home education together.
At Cottonwood, you choose the curriculum that best fits your child — and we’re here to help! We invite you to explore our educational offerings below.
We are interested in your whole family. We take the time to learn about your children and each individual’s preferences, interests, and needs so we can help you choose a curriculum that fits your educational goals and philosophy.
We have more than 100 specially trained and fully credentialed homeschool teachers (HSTs). Our enrollment team will work to match you with an HST that will fit your needs and partner with you through your homeschooling journey.
Each student has access to an Instructional Fund Budget — $2,800 for grades K–8, $3,200 for grades 9–12, and $2,400 for TK. You can use your budget to easily enroll your child in programs and activities, purchase curriculum and resources, and attend events and field trips.
The interests and needs of each child vary widely. That’s why The Cottonwood School partners with hundreds of local vendors to offer enrichment activities to choose from. With our flexible approach, you have a choice in your child’s education.
Your child’s teacher takes an active role in each student’s education. Unlike traditional classrooms where one instructor oversees dozens of students, at Cottonwood, teachers and students engage one-on-one during regular meetings.
Choosing to homeschool opens up a new world of opportunity for you and your family. We know how fundamental community is to social and emotional development. That’s why we provide ongoing activities that bring our Cottonwood community together.
SO MANY TO CHOOSE FROM…

Building a sense of community among children helps them develop respectful, cooperative friendships essential to each individual’s lifelong success. At Cottonwood, we are Reimagining Community. No longer are students and families connected with others by physical proximity only.
Our community develops from people working together for the benefit of our children’s quality education. The Cottonwood School supports families so that you never feel alone. We provide ongoing support for parents and encourage frequent contact with our credentialed homeschool teachers.
I am grateful because our HST makes time to speak with me over the phone or by zoom call whenever I need assistance. I am grateful that she cares so much about my dreams and finds ways to encourage us.
We had the same HST for 6 years and she was such a gift to us. Her love, enthusiasm, caring, encouragement, empathy, knowledge,… The list could go on and on!
Where do I start?? Our HST is amazing and our family is so lucky to have her. She is supportive and encouraging and makes my girls feel so special.
Our HST has taken the time to form a genuine relationship with our whole family, and is the best resource and support!
