One-to-one, personalized school for worldschoolers, homeschoolers, and students for whom traditional school just isn’t working.
Why buy an off-the-shelf class for an individual learner? We meet your child where they are and design courses that prepares them for where they are going.
From choosing and shaping the best classes to matching with a great teacher, we will help you build a structure that works for your child.
You’ve tried online classes. You’ve tried boxed curricula. You’ve tried unit studies. Still struggling?
A private teacher can make the difference in sparking curiosity in your learner. The mentoring relationship encourages deep understanding and responsibility.
Whether you are combining school with travel, arts, or sports, Cicero schedules classes around your time constraints. Using all available technologies to find the best way to meet and communicate with your student. This can look like an intense, condensed semester or a class that is spread out to accommodate breaks.
Our focus is on building a strong relationship between student and teacher. We do this through our one-on-one format that is student-centered and facilitated by inspiring, creative, expert teachers. To get a sense for what this looks and feels like, join us for a quick tour of a Cicero "classroom."
No problem. We would work with you, analyze your local school system’s curriculum, and design each course to enable you to return to traditional school in the future.
Each class is customized to your interests and needs. We find that most courses are designed for 1-2 live interactions per week + additional asynchronous work done over Docs, Discord, or whatever platform works for you.
Our pricing varies according to the scope of each course. A good benchmark is a typical full-load course, which we define as a 30-week course with 2 hour-long live sessions and 3-5 hours of independent work weekly (equalling 150-210 hours). This would cost $5760.
