Backyard Classroom

Academics with a Twist

Welcome to our Backyard Classroom led by real-life doctor of animal behavior and biology DOC FLEENER! We offer daily classes for grades 1-5 that cover topics in animals, plants, science, math, and language with exhilarating interactive ADVENTURES and PUZZLES. Content changes every week so you can keep signing up for more! 

“Where we’re going, we don’t need to break distancing codes!” – The Doc

How it Works

  1. Classes generally meet daily from 9:30 – 10:30 am PT and 11:00 am-12:00 pm PT, but stay tuned for extra special one-off classes throughout the week.

In some weeks you can register for a full week of class that takes the time to dive into subjects more deeply and allows students to build more on their characters, stories, and friendships over time. 

In other weeks we offer one-hour, one-off classes that focus on a different topic every day as an interactive adventure. We explore different ecosystems, laboratory experiments gone wrong, magical forests lands, challenging escape rooms, and more!  Game on! 

 All of our classes are interactive ZOOM video calls and you only need to show with paper, a pencil, and big questions about the world.  

When registering, be ready to commit the following level of supervision:

Phone On – Guardians must be in the same house with phone on for notifications.
