Our Academics

We use Bookshark's all-subject curriculum for Levels K-5.
To find out which Level your child is best suited for, check them out below:

Our Level K packages are designed for students from ages 5-7. If your child is in that age range, they may be ready for BookShark's Level K program!

Young children are natural learners (it is one of the reasons they ask so many questions), but academic work requires a different set of skills than the ones your child has been building. We expect the Level K work to take about 1.5-2 hours for you and your child.


Please consider whether or not they are ready to:

  • Listen and pay attention when you read chapter books out loud

  • Answer questions about what they hear and see

  • Sit still for short periods of time

  • Follow simple instructions

  • Work with you to complete worksheets and activities

Our Level 1 packages were designed for students from ages 6-8 and we’ve been told that our material can be quite challenging for children on the younger end of the age spectrum. This is not surprising; there is a big difference in development between a 6 year old and an 8 year old!

We expect the Level 1 work to take your child about 2-3 hours. Please make sure that your child is able to:

  • Read at a 1st Grade level or higher (see our Quick Reading Assessment)

  • Write letters and simple words

  • Copy a sentence out on paper

  • Recall and follow simple instructions

  • Sit still and focus for 10-15 minutes at a time

Ages 9-12.

Ages 10-13.

Ages 11-13.
