Who Are We?
At eNDVR, we believe that each student deserves an education that works for them. For some, that means attending eNDVR’s homeschool classes once or twice a week. For others, that means attending public school 4 days a week and eNDVR 1 day a week. And, for others, it means spending every day at eNDVR and immersing themselves in our unique quarterly themes. eNDVR is not a school in the traditional sense. It is a resource center for families who want to take charge of their student’s education. Our doors are open from 9:30-3:30, Monday-Friday, for students grade K-8. Students of ALL ABILITIES are embraced as part of the eNDVR community.
Our Lending Library
Any homeschool family can check out books or curriculum from our lending library, Monday through Friday from 9:30-3:30. Homeschooling materials are expensive – don’t waste your money on new curriculum before you try it out! If you have finished with curriculum and do not plan to sell it, we would appreciate your donation!
Our Quarter System
eNDVR’s school year is broken up into four themed 8 week sessions: Survive, Express, Innovate, Connect. Along with regular classes that are offered year round, our themed sessions give students the opportunity to explore their world in a way that makes sense to them.
During the summer, eNDVR offers 1/2 day and full day summer camps. Camps are put on by local experts and vary by year. Technology camps include robotics and engineering, Minecraft, video game development, movie making and more. Outdoors camps include survival skills, Montana Mysteries and bug camp. eNDVR also partners with local organizations to create unique experiences for campers in the Missoula community. Stay tuned to our website for information on this year’s summer camps.
From rock climbing to snowshoeing to hiking, students can choose from a variety of outdoor activities and classes at eNDVR. eNDVR students also enjoy weekly homeschool classes at Missoula Taekwondo Center and Bitterroot gymnastics. We have partnered with local experts to offer specialty classes throughout the year, including skiing, dance and hula hooping.
eNDVR students have the opportunity to attend music classes offered by local experts. We are currently partnering with the Child Bloom guitar program and Grow Music Missoula. During our Innovate session, students have the opportunity to create electronic music and score our movie project.
eNDVR’s mission is to provide experiential learning opportunities to all Missoula area homeschoolers, regardless of ability to pay. Our classes are affordable when compared to local private schools and other extra curricular activities. For dedicated families, eNDVR offers a co-op model. Parents and students (age 13+) can perform work hours for eNDVR that offset (and possibly eliminate) the cost of classes. Co-op members are asked to pay a low monthly fee and must fulfill a minimum participate requirement. Our goal is to help families provide the best possible homeschooling experience for each student, so please do not hesitate to contact us with questions about scholarships and alternative payment arrangements.
