Pros: Create your own education with the materials you choose - great for unschoolers!
Cons: No educational materials provided
Clonlara is a program that helps you structure the education you want for your child and helps you document and fit all learning - in real life and from a book - into the curriculum goals of the education system for grade achievement and transcripts. Each student gets a Clonlara Advisor who works with the student and parent to plan educational goals for the year and documents achievements, contact hours for study, and assessments for report cards and transcripts.
Each year the student is sent a guide to help direct learning and provide lists of resources and requirements and is advised on meeting educational standards and benchmarks. Optional standardized testing and online course are available.
As unschoolers my daughters loved Clonlara. It allowed the to pursue their education on their own terms and their advisor was always there to encourage, advise and support them. Clonlara was the perfect fit for us!
