Programs

Audubon Academy (formerly Homeschool Program)

Connect, learn, and engage with the natural world through our monthly home school programs

Audubon Academy is making some changes for the 2021 – 2022 school year.

PRAC will now offer Audubon Academy for separate grade levels K-2, 3-5, & 6-8!

Join us, monthly, for PRAC’s in-person Audubon Academy Home School program as we explore natural history through science, literacy, art, and more!  Come delve into the natural world and learn how our local environment functions and how human beings can manage behavior and ecosystems to live sustainably. 

Audubon Academy can help students become in-tune with their surroundings and gain an appreciation for the natural world while contributing to their personal and social development. We offer different sessions for grades K-2, 3-5, and 6-8. Each month focuses on a different science topic and allows time for learning, outdoor play, exercise, and socializing. All sessions meet the Mississippi College and Career Readiness Standards for Science and the Next Generation Science Standards and include a lesson, outdoor exploration, experiments, nature walks, games, stories, or crafts.
