Private students in a homeschool setting


        Whimselthwaite School is an eclectic, private micro-school with a student-to-faculty ratio of 5:1, facilitating the self-education of inquisitive students in grades Pre-K through 12, by means of an expert governess, tutoring from home, in a homeschool setting. 

      Our distinct, blended-age class dynamic incorporates the intimacy of family life with the social variety and collaborative potential of private or traditional school. 

       Our full-time calendar integrates extracurriculars and is tailored to the parents.

       Each child's curriculum is individualized according to their needs and their passions.

      Our natural, classical education is rich in literature, filled with play, and pursues the art of the penetrating question.

       Whimselthwaite school recruits students who are brave, kind, voracious, resourceful, intriguing, imaginative, and tenacious.


“Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.”

— William Butler Yeats
