About Frog Hollow


Frog Hollow School is a language arts program for homeschoolers focused on helping young writers thrive. This year, Frog Hollow is offering classes online for ages eight through twelve, as well as an outdoor option. Registration for Spring 2020 opens March 1st. Please apply using the form on the registration page.

Frog Hollow is also offering a new Teen Writing Workshop for teens who want to dive deep into creative writing.

Come join us this summer for our first ever Outdoor Summer Camp!


Frog Hollow’s curriculum centers on open, IMG_1420creative prompts. Classes are lively, excited spaces where enthusiasm for writing is infectious and everyone is encouraged to find their voice. Curious to learn more about the Frog Hollow philosophy? Read this article  by director Becca Hall on working with reluctant writers.


 The Frog Hollow curriculum integrates arts, music, social studies, mythology, and ecology into a solid core of language arts. Through a mix of writing, art projects, stories, and singing, students receive a firm foundation in creative writing, rhetoric, grammar, spelling, and literature.


Part of each day is also spent at the park running, playing, and exploring nature. We play hard, get muddy, observe changing seasons, have a blast, and bring our active experiences in nature back into the classroom.


Students work at their own pace in a mixed-age environment that fosters mutual respect and the joy of learning. IMG_0372

Frog Hollow works to be a place where all children feel at home regardless of race, religion, gender expression, family structure, or background. We strive to include families with as many different financial circumstances as our scholarship funds allow. We seek to share the work of a wide breadth of writers, and to put the literature we encounter into the context of history, including dynamics like racism, sexism, and colonialism, in the service of respecting the full humanity of every human being.

“I sent to Frog Hollow an exceptionally reluctant writer – honestly, I was at the end of my rope – and Becca Hall returned to me a poet, a novelist, a playwright, a field guide researcher, and a kid who “sneak writes” when she should be sleeping.” ~ Elisa, Parent
