Homeschooling has allowed me to customize my sons’ learning and has given them an opportunity to learn in environments that best suit their skills and abilities. While our family has many different avenues for learning, after our daily home lessons, Westerly Learning Center is without question, the next most important source for our learning.~ Tracy DeBruyn
To us it has been the best of both worlds. Our children have had the opportunity to study at home and simultaneously attend WLC. WLC provides a disciplined classroom environment with healthy competition to encourage students to excel in their studies while providing friendship and fellowship with like minded families. It is a safe, pleasant, Christ-centered environment with an excellent staff and superior academics at an affordable price for home school families.With grateful hearts,
Westerly Learning Center has been an essential component of our children's homeschool experience. At WLC they've had the benefit of studying with excellent teachers who are passionate about their subjects; they've been inspired to work hard on projects, knowing that they will be presenting them to their teachers and peers; they've learned to meet deadlines, to study for tests, and have experienced the pleasure and responsibility of being part of a caring community. They've been influenced and inspired by some of the best role models they'll ever meet -- all in an atmosphere that is relaxed and nurturing, yet challenging and filled with the joy and excitement of discovery.
I think it's impossible to overstate the value of our children's experiences at WLC. The homeschooling community here is privileged to have such a valuable resource available to us.~ Richard & Rebecca Jaffe
Looking back at what Westerly Learning Center has meant for our children, we see two essential elements - one expected, and one unexpected. We expected an excellent learning environment and WLC was exactly that. It helped my daughters learn "how to learn" through observation, analysis, and synthesis through presentations. The subjects were those where home-schooling families are likely to run short on expertise - like High School Biology - and where groups offer better learning - like Speech and Writing. The arts and world languages were other areas we benefited greatly from.
It has been more than ten years since our eldest was at the Center, and she along with her sisters still comment on the quality of teaching offered and knowledge discovered over at WLC. The unexpected element was the life-long friendships our daughters were able to begin and foster. As we look back, we realize what an integral part of the educational and social experiences of our children WLC became.~ Steve & Ester Smith
