Virtual Classes

O.W.L. Educational Services provides a number of virtual classes to students ages three and up. We pride ourselves on smaller class sizes (less than 10 students per class) while offering various course options. Because these classes are more affordable than our typical 1-to-1 tutoring rates, we only run classes once we have 4 students enrolled. 

Below is a list of some of the courses we offer. Please note that the cost of these classes does not include any textbook that may be used. 

 

The duration ranges for each of these courses. As we offer them, we will provide information as to the start and end dates. These may range from 1-12 months.

We also can customize courses if you have a homeschool pod!
