New Day Academy is a cottage school program for homeschooled middle and high school students in Louisville. Students attend Monday-Thursday, 9-12:30, and take classes in English, math, anatomy, U.S. government, communications, and character. Class size is limited to 12 students. Students will complete most reading and writing assignments at home, and engage in discussion and projects in class. New Day Academy is located near the Louisville Zoo. Tuition is $2000 annually, and families will be responsible to purchase supplies and curriculum. Extended day options are available at an additional cost. New Day Academy is run by Heather Walton, a certified teacher with diverse teaching experience, as well as a school administration background. Ms. Walton previously founded a full-time school, and has teaching experience in public, Christian, and homeschool education.

I started A+ Education Solutions in 2013 because I had a strong desire to help students who need a little extra help to reach their goals. In the process, I started a cottage school that morphed into a more traditional model of a school, partnered with my husband as he pastors our church, moved, had a baby, had a couple of children leave the nest, taught at another wonderful Christian school, and most recently, realized that I need to return home and center myself there. Through all of it, my mission for a vocation has not changed: I believe God has called me to creatively facilitate Christian education for a diverse population of students.
Though I no longer run Jubilee Academy, the model I began there still lives in my heart. What is that model? Well, for starters, it’s a kinder, gentler model of education — an individualized model, where students are seen as real people who have struggles, but who also have much to offer the world. God created each of us with unique gifts, and those gifts are meant to be shared with the world. However, some people buy into the cultural lie that academics and athletics are the prized intelligences, and that others are inferior. Can you imagine a world without artists, mechanics, electricians, fast food servers, and on and on? Two of the most important jobs in the world are plumbers and trash collectors. Think about that for a moment.
But we all have to get through the academics, at least for 13 years. Some of us really struggle, though. And we just need a helping hand, maybe just for a season, and maybe all the way through. Sometimes the student needs direct help, in the form of tutoring and assessment. Other times, the student needs indirect assistance, such as an IEP advocate at school or homeschool support for his parents. A+ Education Solutions is here to help with these needs. Rates are reasonable and assistance is personalized to your family’s needs. Because I’m focusing on health and family, slots are limited, but there are a few left and I am happy to put others on my waiting list. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org or text/call 502-438-4680. I look forward to hearing from you!
