Open Tent Academy
Open Tent Academy is an all-inclusive, virtual environment where homeschoolers (and “after-schoolers”) can take an array of classes, taught by instructors, who are experts in their fields.
Have your learner join us for a summer filled with fun, hands-on investigations into some great American History topics – in this series we will be looking at how life at home was affected by America’s entry into World War II (WWII)
We will learn together about each of these particular topics, and how they relate to the overall subject of the war.
Additionally, parents have the opportunity to sign up for individual Bite-Sized History (BSH) sessions (instead of the full eight-week series). We are doing this to allow for more flexibility with your summer schedule.
NOTE: If you register for individual BSH sessions, your student will NOT be added to Canvas (our LMS) and will instead receive the link for the individual sessions via email.
