A World-Class Education
for a Global Future
(Beta Test Program)
World School Academy (WSA) is a unique combination of self-directed online or at-home education with accountability from mentors and peers, plus project-based, real-world, portfolio-building learning. We also provide regular in-person challenges, skills development, mentoring, adventure, and experiential learning opportunities.
LIKE NO OTHER
Only at World School Academy (WSA) do we combine real-world experiential project-based learning with online mentoring, classes, and curriculum.
Students learn how to learn and think, to discover their life purpose and mission, and the skills they need to master in order to make a real positive difference in the world.
We are looking for families & students that are the 'right fit' for the World School Academy culture which is based on purpose, mission, growth and learning, values and contribution, and adventure.
If you feel you are the 'right fit' for this program, we invite you to apply. We have flexible tuition options and even financial aid available.

Works With What You're Doing
WSA works with what you're ALREADY doing -- use as much or as little as needed.
"This is AMAZING!! We are starting our ninth year of homeschool this year and this program is what I’ve been looking for the entire time! We move a lot and my kids haven’t ever been able to deeply connect with many friends. This is the perfect solution."
Your educational philosophy is so spot on! We’ve been... doing some curriculum here and there but the things that have taught the most are impactful books, hands on opportunities, self interests, and travel adventures. A mentor (other than we boring parents 😉) is the missing piece. "
WSA has a year-round calendar that starts in October and ends in September. There are 4 sessions per year, each lasting 8-10 weeks with approx. 3-5 weeks of break in between sessions. Reach Upward camps and adventures will be held during breaks. Some mentoring ('school') sessions will be spent studying abroad.
* BETA TEST session begins September and continues to December 2020.
** Session 4 (maybe) and Session 1 will be study abroad. If the student cannot participate in the study abroad they will be able to participate virtually and continue meeting with their mentor and peers.
Example Daily & Weekly Schedule
(online Class & live mentoring)
*multiple meeting times in different time zones will be offered depending on the # of students in each zone.
Students will meet every morning with their mentor and peers to set goals for the study day using their Personal Study Plan as a guideline (previously created with the help of parents and mentors).
During the day students will work on their plan and then report their progress during Accountability Meetings. Students will have text or video access to their mentor and team partners throughout the day for any questions or concerns that may arise.
* During 'study time' at 9:30, 11:00 and 1:00 students will attend school or other online classes, or utilize another predetermined curriculum.
If nothing has been selected, Greg & Rachel will work with the parents and students to help them identify exactly what the student will work on during each 'study time'. So when it comes time for 'Core Studies' your student will know exactly what to work on (i.e. Khan Academy for 40 min., Quill.org for 20 min. etc.) Students will be free to use whichever curriculum they would like, and we can also provide suggestions and recommendations.
** One-on-one accountability & mentoring sessions are available for students who aren't able to meet at scheduled times.
HOLISTIC LIFE education coaching
(live & online 1-2 times per month)
Parents will meet live online one to two times per month with Greg & Rachel Denning. Parents will work to redefine the definition of education for their family, create an Education Master Vision and Plan, and then work with mentoring their children to create Personal Study Plans.
Greg & Rachel will also work individually with parents to answer questions about specific challenges and obstacles.
