Online Classes

Fall Registration opens Monday, July 31 (Noon Eastern)

Brave Writer online classes are uniquely designed with the busy homeschooling parent in mind. Classes last between 3 to 6 weeks. Our courses address a specific writing need. Take one or more per year. Class sessions are short so that you may work your family vacations, team sports travels, and medical needs around the class schedule. Each semester features a new slate of classes, and most of our popular ones repeat.
