RaShaunda Lugrand and her husband Melvin, owners of The InTune Mother Society designed SOIL on the basis of integrated concepts that have been created, out of the desire to introduce their (seeds), to the importance of proper communication skills at an early age. There are four developmental stages that focus on these and they are: cognitive, auditory, sensory, and kinesthetic. Through a creative 36 week thematic program called “The APLHA Experience." We cultivate children ages 2 to 13 years.
Our independent learning platform is based upon each child's learning style and willingness to engage in reading, writing, mathematics, social studies, art, music, technology, health, and sports. Here we have developed an experiential based platform that identifies Advanced Literary Phonetics for Higher Application (ALPHA) of the origins of the alphabet from Aa – Zz and beyond. The goal for the children that attend our virtual academy is to learn how to be socially independent, creatively inspired, and academically confident. The children that attend SOIL GrassRoots Academy experience all these and advanced technology through our integrated "STrEaM" program.
At SOIL we chose a different approach. We share life-long experiences, with the families that we serve. Here we see that children learn best when engaged by understanding the vibrational frequency of learning as a lifestyle. Our “seeds” learn by deliberate research of each letter. We explore the origins of how letters were formed and how each letter resonates, with it's own harmonic sound, within us as well as the world around us. In turn creating words, songs, pledges, and affirmations that we connect to through symbolic recognition. These are the attributes to our linguistic roots. Such a broad education is a way of life at SOIL and a rich cultural experience from our homeschooling family to yours.
