Founded in the summer of 2020, Wilmore Crossing Academy endeavors to fill the void for an alternative schooling option in Jessamine and nearby counties - including the greater Lexington area. Micro-schools are a reinvention of the old one-room schoolhouse concept with small multi-age/level groups. Homeschool families are increasingly drawn to micro-schools because they offer individualized academic structure in a flexible and creative atmosphere.
Wilmore Crossing Academy provides a full range of classes for students in grades K through 12. A strong emphasis of the Academy is our unique electives. As often as possible, classes are held outdoors or off-campus in the community to provide varied experiences for students. Course offerings have included: Entrepreneurship, Financial Literacy, English, Geology/Archaeology, Math, Geography, Cultures Club, Government, Mad Skills!, Art/Art History, Literature/Book Club, Cursive & Keyboarding, Spanish I, II, Debate, Drama, Costume Set & Design, Apps, Animation and More!
Class sizes are limited to 12 to complement non-traditional schooling with a 6:1 student-to-teacher ratio in core subjects. Smaller classes allow for deeper learning with less lecture and more discussion through hands-on exploration and research. Here at WCA our goal is to help families homeschool better!
