If you really want to give your child an academic advantage, then stepping outside the paradigm of grade levels is the best way to leverage that. In the introductory workshop, we demonstrate why mastery is important, where grade levels came from and how get rid of them to customize an education for your child, while still being accountable to any records you want or need to keep. We will talk about how to interpret mastery onto those records so that you are still complying with your local homeschool requirements of "180 days" (not every state requires this, but many do.) You can leverage this with or without any formal curriculum for any child. Special needs, gifted, and "regular" kids all benefit from this method - you will never say "my child is behind" again!
