Paideia Fellowship Homeschool Community offers an all-inclusive Charlotte Mason inspired, classical humanities course of study taught by skilled and loving teachers so you can breathe easy, knowing they are learning well, completing their courses, and growing in wisdom and virtue.
In this program, students will restfully seek the good, the true, and the beautiful through the great works and ideas of our world. In turn, students will respond to those ideas through writing, discussion, debates, projects, performances, and other activities.
They will practice and master the skills of the language liberal arts (close reading, writing, grammar, logic, rhetoric) and experience the content of an integrated humanities class (history, literature, philosophy, artist study, and composer study). In addition, we provide instruction in a variety of self-management techniques and study skills throughout the year.
Both you and your student will discover a tribe that gets the work of homeschooling classically no matter where you are in the world.
We lead the instruction, grading, and discussion for all of your students’ writing, literature, history, logic, and oratory classes.
You, as the mother, will be given free registration and membership to online and in-person training offered by Paideia Fellowship for adults as well as access to our online community for Paideia Fellowship parents. Think of it as an online coffee hour, plus a ton of continuing education, community support, and connection throughout the year.
Jessica Jensen has been home educating her two daughters since 2009 when a family crisis demanded that she do so. Always a voracious researcher, Jessica identified the ideas of classical and Charlotte Mason educational philosophy as ideals and formatted her homeschool around those ideas.
Throughout her years as a home educator Jessica has taught a variety of classes, with a focus on the humanities, in local homeschool cooperatives. In 2019, Jessica co-founded Sola Gratia Fellowship, a Christian classical liberal arts homeschool community. She is a co-director of Sola Gratia Fellowship and leads in the areas of vision, upper school academics and continuing education for parents and mentors.
Jessica graduated from the University of Idaho where she majored in architecture and minored in art. She worked for several years in the field of architecture before looking into the eyes of her firstborn and dreaming new dreams.
Jessica, a Protestant Christian, practices in the Lutheran tradition and finds that her love of liturgy and hymns grows along with the gray hairs on her head. She enjoys participating in creation through the visual and fiber arts, writing and singing in choirs when she gets an opportunity. A west coast native, Jessica grew up split between the city streets of tech-booming Seattle and the wilds of an Alaskan rainforest. She currently resides in Eastern Washington with her family. She loves rainy days, British Literature, and endless cups of chai tea.
Mrs. Jensen serves as the teacher for the Middle School Program.
