RBG Academy’s Classes
The Village Experience
RBG Academy’s The Village Experience is an engaging bundle of classes developed to meet the enrichment needs of students of all ages. In two separate 12-week sessions, students will enjoy a package of five subjects: History, Science, Finance, Language Arts, and Mathematical Exploration. Each session is replete with the knowledge that is uniquely and genuinely relevant to the parents and children of the African Diaspora.
In addition, The Village Experience is focused on building a nurturing and supportive community for African descended homeschoolers and their parents. In this way, our students learn the importance of having, developing, and enriching our global communities during their lifelong journey.
Our revolutionary program is designed to meet the needs of students from K-12 at age/ability appropriate levels. RBG Academy’s The Village Experience is the perfect fit regardless of whether students are traditional homeschoolers, un-schoolers, have an eclectic approach, or are veterans or newbies.
Black History Rewind
At RBG Academy, we are intentional in the way we present our story to our students. This 12-week (history only) session, we instill the true story of how our ancestors arrived in the United States and we continue the story through the modern time period. We tackle this difficult subject with our unique and age-appropriate apporach. This allows parents to engage in further discussion with their child at home.
(Please Note: Sessions 1 and 2 are 12-weeks each).
We have full confidence in our mentor-aged students (9th-12th grades). They are prepared to study our story at a deeper level to establish even deeper roots. As they prepare for adulthood, this course will give them the freedom and a safe space to ask tough questions, create and facilitate respectful discussions and even apply knowledge to modern history. We encourage the mentors to use their foices taht theymay be empowered to communicate their ideas in a positive and impactful way.
Students will explore the truth of our ancestor’s arduous journey to the United States. We cover their stories, victories and challenges prior to colonization through modern timelines. Students will also be required to read literary selections that will both challenge and strengthen their worldview. Literature titles are provided upon completed registration and can be found at your local bookstore or library.

The History of Our Greatness
The history of the African Diaspora is as vast as the continent itself. For far too long, our greatness has been bound by systems meant to mute our truth and the truth of our ancestors. It is paramount, now more than ever, that we begin to unfold these stories from our past, together. These stories tell of our brilliance, our resilience, our wisdom and our ancestors. RBG Academy invites you to journey with us as we explore our immense contribution to the globe.
Their legacy begins at home.
As your child grows, the imprint of identity that will be left in his/her heart is guided by you. Their sense of self will develop with your thoughtful hand leading them toward positive images of their culture, history and identity. RBG Academy is unique in that it provides a community where our students and parents can learn, without apology, of the people in the African diaspora and their multitude of contributions to civilization and the effects that are still being felt and created today.
