Chagrin Valley Learning Collective accepts children ages 5-18 and does not use test scores or grades from previous schools as criteria for admission. We admit children if they, their parents, and our program believe that the child will thrive here. Registration may happen throughout the year (depending on availability) beginning with a trial period. If at the end of the trial both the family and the program are satisfied that there is a good fit, the child can be enrolled for the year.

A place for


Chagrin Valley Learning Collective welcomes children of all races, colors, national origins, ethnicities, religions, economic backgrounds, genders, sexual orientations, and families of any composition. The program also accepts children with or without special needs or giftedness, however CVLC is not a therapy program. Chagrin Valley Learning Collective does not have formal education accreditation, so families must register as homeschoolers within their local school district which is an easy process that we can help with. It is our understanding that a parent/guardian may withdraw a child from public school at anytime during the year, register as homeschoolers, and join our program.

CVLC is primarily supported through the monthly program fee paid by its families.  We seek to be available to families based on right fit, not income level, so we have made available a Tier Chart to provide a recommended monthly fee level for your income level. Families in need of additional financial aid may contribute time and expertise that will add value to the program in one or more of its areas of need for an hourly rate of fee remission.
