Tricky Tuesday Cohort

Our Tricky Tuesday cohort has a STEAM focus giving opportunities for students to investigate and delight in learning about:

Science during our Silly science days

Technology on our Tech Tuesday where students will learn computer skills and how to make videos

Engineering on our building and design days

Art with our Artist's Academy

Math during our brain games and other fun math activities

We value helping students grow academically and finding creative ways to help them get excited about learning, even when it is a subject they usually don't enjoy. Students will get a chance to participate in each of these learning experiences, but will choose a track to focus on for the semester. Those who participate in this cohort will set goals for a passion project, within their chosen track, that they will work on completing throughout the semester. A student who loves art can focus their passion project within the art track, but they will still participate in the other learning experiences throughout the semester. Our goal is for students to be able to put their focus in an area they enjoy while still being challenged to grow in other areas as well.

Another value that runs through all we do is helping the students develop lasting friendships. Woven into all the STEAM activities is a foundation of helping the students to connect with and learn from each other. We want to give them the opportunity to learn from each other and learn to value each others strengths.

Our Tuesday cohort includes our monthly Together with God and Homeschool Hot Lunch. We will be providing lunch and have activities for the students to connect with each other and with God. Throughout the semester we will be studying the "one another's" in the New Testament. We will be giving the students tools for helping them grow in their relationship with God and with each other.

The Tricky Tuesday Cohort takes place from 10:00am-3:00pm each Tuesday. Each week we will have different learning experiences focusing on different tracks within the STEAM theme. A few examples are: Silly Science, Building & Design, Tech Tuesdays and more. These learning experiences are Montessori style (based on self-directed activity, hands-on learning and collaborative play) and will allow for students to pursue learning around the days subject in a variety of ways. Mornings will vary from week to week. (We will publish a detailed schedule this summer.) After lunch we will be listening to "On the Night Train" a podcast that adventures across the United States while students work on their Artist's Academy projects.

Once a month students will have the opportunity to come at 9:30am to join us for breakfast club. This is not required for cohort students to participate, but open for all cohort students to join. Breakfast club will be a part of our silly science, we will be experimenting with smoothy recipes and learning how to create tasty and nutritious breakfast smoothies.

We will meet September 5th, 12th, 19th, 26th

October 3rd, 17th, 24th, 31st

November 7th, 14th, 28th

December 5th, 12th, 19th

October 10th and November 21st we will not meet in person but will meet via Zoom to continue listening to the podcast. These dates are part of our rest week, you can learn more about why we plan regular rest time in our schedule in this blog post.

Students who participate in our Tricky Tuesday Cohort will automatically be registered for all of our Tuesday learning experiences, including HomeSchool Hot lunch and Breakfast Club. The cost of this cohort includes all supplies needed for all the learning experiences on Tuesday. Students will get a journal that will correspond with their track to record their learning this fall. The commitment is from 10-3:00pm.

To participate in our Tricky Tuesday Cohort, please fill out the cohort application. After the application is completed, we will schedule an interview. The purpose of the interview is to discuss the track that your student(s) will want to focus on this fall and to make sure that the cohort will be a good fit for your family.

The cost to participate in the Tricky Tuesday cohort is $250 + the $25 cohort application fee. Families who are Arrow Kids Members can register for 50% off. You can learn more about our memberships here.

Tricky Tuesday Frequently Asked Questions

Why do we ask for an application fee?

Over the years we have had a large number of families register for learning experiences and cohorts, but for one reason or another they don't follow through. We spend a lot of time chasing down those who register, buy supplies and prepare for these families who may have never intended to commit to learning with us. The application fee is our way of asking families to commit to joining us by applying for our cohorts. If you are applying for more than one cohort, you only need to pay for 1 application fee.

Why is this cohort more expensive than the other cohorts?

This cohort includes multiple learning experiences that require lots of supplies for hands on learning as well as food provided during Breakfast club and HomeSchool Hot Lunch. Students will also be receiving fun schooling journals, depending on which track they chose and this adds to the expense of the cohort as well.

Why do I have to pay for as an adult for the Tricky Tuesday Cohort?

When you register for your student(s) to participate in the Arrow Kids Cohort you are committing to being a part of the cohort with your student and will be registered for all of the learning experiences. The cost for the adult registration for the Arrow Kids Cohort is to cover the cost of Homeschool Hot Lunch, Breakfast Club and supplies for Mom School.

Can we join the Tricky Tuesday Cohort just for the fall or spring semester?

Yes, you do not have to have participated in the Tricky Tuesday cohort this fall in order to join us this spring. We have families register one semester at a time to give families a chance to adjust their schedules as needed. We understand that life can change and want to make sure families can make the adjustments they need. We do however ask that you commit to joining us for the complete semester. One of our main goals is to help the students create friendships and this is difficult if families are not consistent in their attendance.

Do I need to attend with my student?

Our Arrow Kids Academy learning experiences and cohorts are interactive and we ask parents to stay and be involved with their child's learning.

I have a younger child who will be attending with me, do I need to register them as a student?

We ask that you register everyone who will be attending. If you have a younger student who will attend with you, we recommend that you register them as a toddler so that we have enough supplies for them to join us with the activities we do. Our goal is to learn together so we work to make activities successful for all ages.

Are there scholarships available to help lower the cost of participating in the cohorts?

We never want finances to keep families from joining us. We know that it can be a burden on families especially those with multiple children so we want to work with you to help make it possible. We offer 50% off all our learning experiences and cohorts to Arrow Kids Family members. You can learn more about our memberships here. If you are in need of financial support beyond the membership discount, please complete this request form and we will be in contact to see how we can help make it possible for your family to be a part of the Arrow Kids Cohort.
