Homeschool Cooking Classes Teens 13+
Tuesdays 11am-1pm
Fall Semester Classes Begin August 13, 2024

Need a culinary arts and life skills component for your homeschool curriculum?  We've done the work for you. Our monthly themed series of classes offer mindful, purposeful and cumulative learning opportunities for your students.  Each homeschool cooking class series is created to teach the essential culinary and life skill concepts all students need to learn for future independent living.  Of course, learning to cook also hones skills in math, science, reading, comprehension, and cultural history.  Classes are taught by Culinary & Life Skills Coach, Mary Aragon - who also happens to be an eleven year veteran homeschool mom.  Classes are small, hands-on with only six students per class to allow for optimal learning and individualized attention.  Each class students will learn and complete a recipe. The recipe reinforces and builds upon the culinary concepts they are learning.  Bonus: this class is during the lunch hour so students will sit and eat together giving yet another opportunity for honing valuable skills in communication.  Finally, students will clean up as a group.  Yet another valuable life skill.  Registration opens one month prior to each semester.  Fall registration with full menus opens July 13th, 2024.
