Cupola Academy

Cupola Academy (CA) is a secular, nonprofit educational organization that provides a supportive community-base for homeschooling families. CA offers full-day programs for young people ages 4-18 to attend 2 days a week in a collaborative and resource-rich environment. CA nurtures the innate intellectual curiosity of young people in a pro-social atmosphere.

At the heart of CA's programs is the belief in natural curiosity, the value of collaboration, the importance of engaging in Real Work (vs. make work) and an emphasis on Process Consciousness.

Cupola Academy is designed for families who are seeking an intellectually rich atmosphere that promotes a growth mindset, encourages lifelong learning, and emphasizes social and environmental justice. These values are fostered in all of CA's programs.

2022 LOVE Award Winner: Best Resource for Homeschool Families

Family Focus Media has been building community with Main Line Parent and Philadelphia Family since 2010 and our annual LOVE Awards celebrate the BEST local resources for families, thanks to thousands of nominations like this one:

My children flourish at Cupola Academy (CA) because of their thoughtful and meaningful approach to education. And it offers us the best of both worlds -- two days a week they engage in pro-social, high-quality, collaborative educational activities at CA, and three days a week they have the flexibility to pursue interests and passions, take college classes as dual-enrolled high school students, and creatively meet their academic needs. We've been on this educational path for 8 years and couldn't have done it without Mike and Julia and the entire CA family!
