ACES Academy (1st-8th Grade)

Whether you are a current family seeking a supportive and nurturing environment to supplement your child’s education or you are new to the homeschool community, ACES PreK-8 Academy can support you on your journey. ACES serves families in the far western suburbs of Chicago. Our programs provide parents and learners with additional resources and supports for their home education. Together We Learn Better! ACES Academy Pre-K/Kindergarten offers half or full day classes for ages 4-5 (at time of first day of fall classes). The Academy classes for ages 6-13 (at time of first day of fall classes) meet from 9am-2pm. Academy CORE days are offered  on Tuesdays and Wednesdays; with an emphasis on ELA/History (Tues) and STEM (Wed).  Academy FUNDAMENTALS day is offered on Thursday.  There are NO CLASSES on Mondays and A LA CARTE CLASSES are offered on Fridays.

New for the 2024-2025 school year, Academy CORE days will offer an Extended Day option until 3pm exclusively for Academy CORE families. Additionally, as a thank you to our amazing Academy families–all Academy families will have the option to “Add-on” deeply discounted bundles for all three days (Dec. 10-12 from 9am-2pm) of December Discovery classes AND a deeply discounted bundle for all Friday A La Carte classes (10 weeks in Fall and Spring from 10am-2pm).

Our Academy CORE homeschool support program operates on a unique theme-based/unit study approach, which integrates ELA, History, and STEM subjects into cohesive learning experiences. With a specific emphasis on each subject area on designated days, students receive targeted instruction and activities connected to the program themes of study. It is recommended to attend both CORE days for maximum immersion in the theme-based curriculum. Read more about CORE here! Topics for each class are based for the yearly instructional cycle (see graphics below).

The FUNDAMENTALS day was new at ACES in 2023. This day is a wonderful supplement to our students who attend on the Academy CORE days OR it works as a fantastic stand-alone day as well! Read more about FUNDAMENTALS here!

All registered ACES Academy families (CORE and FUNDAMENTALS) will have access to additional optional field trips or social experiences throughout the year.

All classes are led by teachers; parents drop off students during the sessions. Programs are in session September-May.
