Colossal Academy is a unique option

Each child comes into learning at different stages and different times.
Engaging Online Learning

Ms. Shiren is inviting teachers from all over the world to teach captivating lessons about history, cooking , science and more. She is dedicated to find different ways to organize the students’ homework in ways that work for them!
Ms. Shiren has brought a spark to my child’s eyes that had faded in traditional school and ignited his love of learning. She has brought on equally brilliant teachers to teach various subjects. It feels like the school you could only dream of coming to fruition.
I was constantly searching for an curriculum that went beyond teaching core subjects. I wanted an education that cultivates gifts and skills in order to contribute positively to our society. I have found that curriculum through Colossal Academy.
