Live Homeschool Classes Online
We have quality live homeschool classes online for both middle and high school students. Your child will hear our voices, they will see our faces, and we will know them. Our students are a part of an online learning community that meets in a live classroom weekly with separate office hours available for their courses.
Main Values of Our Homeschooling Program
In years past, safety in schools has been a growing concern. Parents want to know their children are in the best environment possible while learning, and your own home provides the standard of security you desire. Why not learn there?
With the emergence of COVID-19, safety in schools took on a new meaning. Students across the globe were distance learning starting in 2020 proving that learning from the safety of the home is not only entirely possible but necessary in times of crisis. This was the push many families needed to make the switch from schooling at home (public and private school distance learning) to truly homeschooling.
Big River Academy offers the most relevant knowledge to students. We educate them with practical courses and meticulously provide them college preparatory experiences. Our live homeschool classes online are conducted regularly to make sure students are learning and stay on pace throughout the school year. Each virtual class has assignments to be completed throughout the week which have specific deadlines to be met. Everything is graded by the teacher of the course, so parents can be involved if they’d like, but they can also be as hands-off as they’d like.
Our live homeschool classes online through video include a Christian curriculum with different formats. The courses are loaded with Bible-based knowledge for the families that desire their kids to connect their faith to academics. Plus, our vision, mission and statement of faith unitedly promote a Christian worldview.
Our unparalleled teaching experience makes for high-yield lessons. Big River Academy accommodates you the flexibility to enjoy the comfort of your home or be anywhere in the world while learning from the experts.

Learn How Live Online Classes Work At Big River
People often wonder how our live online classes work. During our live classes, the students are able to see and hear their teacher. And the teacher can see and hear and interact with the students. The live classes are essentially just like being in a classroom — it works out great!
We also have two learning areas that each homeschooling student can access anytime. In our asynchronous area, students are not in there at the same time. Here we use PowerSchool. This is where our students come to do their homework and assignments. They are also able to access information like the teacher’s contact details, course syllabus, and recordings of every class. So it is easy to catch up if a class is missed! And as a parent, you’ll have everything you need to know about your child’s classes.
In our synchronous area (where our live classes meet powered by Adobe Connect), students are there at the same time. Students access this area through a link on the welcome page for each class. This platform allows us to do all sorts of things — including breakout rooms (for small group work), presentations, and interactive games — all a vital part of your student’s education.
