We encourage families to do research and explore whether Empowered Minds Academy’s learner-driven model is a “GOOD FIT” for your family. As part of your research, you’re invited to register for an info session, tour, or chat. We enjoy talking to curious families!


  • want their children to take ownership of their learning experiences.

  • believe the conventional school system no longer works to prepare children for the modern world.

  • have a growth mindset and believe that failure is an essential part of the learning process. 

  • are Trailblazers and Trendsetters, Creators & Creatives, and Out-of-the Box Thinkers.

  • want the benefits of learner-directed learning without having to make a full-time commitment to homeschooling.

  • have flexible schedules who need flexible attendance for travel and family obligations.

  • want additional time to pursue their passions beyond school hours.

  • want to maximize their family time.

  • value their freedom and want their children to develop a love of learning.

  • treasure social prestige, status, and really prefer a conventional education. 

  • are “blamers” and ultimately will gossip and criticize, no matter what.

  • aren’t sure their child is ready yet for the responsibility and struggles – and occasional tears – of truly independent learning (and may be right).

  • are not committed to a S/Hero’s Journey themselves.

  • practice lawnmower parenting (knocking down obstacles so their child never experiences hardship) or helicopter parenting (overseeing every aspect of their child’s life).
