Serving and Strengthening the Homeschool Community

Dimensions Family School provides families with support in their homeschooling journey, mixing the strengths of a vibrant, multi-faceted school community with the individual, family-based strengths of homeschooling. This combination provides learners of all ages a new alternative to traditional education. At Dimensions, children and adults become part of a community of peers with access to knowledgeable, helpful individuals with a wide variety of skills and talents. We provide members with the resources they need to direct their own learning, including materials, classes, peer groups, and social opportunities.  When children are free to pursue their own interests, they not only become happier and more engaged, they also become increasingly self-reliant, resourceful and confident in their ability to learn.  We support parents through a Parent Professional Development series, and we work together in a community to educate each member according to their unique strengths.

Dimensions Family School is located in Durham, North Carolina. Our doors are open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.  With no attendance requirements, member families are welcome to come and go as they please. As a community-supported school, our classes require registration and we have volunteer requirements to be fulfilled.  Members must be registered homeschoolers in the state of North Carolina.  Additional programming is available after regular school hours, including wider-community events and classes.

applications for the 2016-2017 school year will be accepted in february 2016. see our Apply page for more details.
