RBG Academy’s Classes
We Did a Thing!
June 19, 2021 was truly a liberation day. June 20, 2021 marked the day our family left the United States…
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 Revolution covers the true story of how civilization began in Africa, our Motherland. Journey with us as we cover the footprint that our ancestors left around the globe as they branched out of Africa to populate the world. This session incorporates geography using the anthropological timeline and provides evidence of our global contribution. We also use leveled instruction to provide age-appropriate information to the students. In this way, parents are free to engage in further discussion with their children at home.
(Please Note: Sessions 1 and 2 are 12-weeks each).
This class is for students ages 13+.
For 12 weeks, students will learn and discuss the true story of how civilization began in Africa, our Motherland. Journey with us as we learn of the footprint that our ancestors left around the globe as they branched out of Africa to populate the world. This session incorporates geography using the anthropological timeline and provides evidence of our global contribution.
Additionally, students will be required to read, study and discuss two books (one fiction, one non-fiction) that explain issues surrounding racism and prejudice too often encountered by African descendants in the United States. Students will complete essays demonstrating comprehension of these complex issues while using their ability to reason. Instructor-led group discussion will provide students an opportunity and a safe space to use their voices respectively and share their opinions.
*Books must be purchased by participants separately and titles will be provided upon completed registration.

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.
