 Flathead Enrichment Classes:

Flathead Homeschool Enrichment Classes is a place where local instructors can come together and offer their classes in a common location on Tuesdays. Each instructor is responsible for setting their own course description, fees and class size as well as collecting their own fees. Parents are always still responsible for their child’s education, but FEC seeks to offer support and enrichment to Flathead Valley homeschoolers. Classes are held at Cornerstone Community Church, 1970 Hwy 93, Kalispell, MT.  

Homeschool Theater Club:

The Homeschool Theatre Club is an educational club that seeks to educate the home-educated students of the Flathead Valley in the Fine Arts.

Our goals include assisting as many young people that we can accommodate age 10 and up, to be a vital part of producing quality theatre performances. We seek by acquiring members in our club to encourage participation in every part of the process. Writing, props, costumes, stagehands, music and other pieces of the production are all worked into the part of their education.

We require membership dues to be a part of the Homeschool Theatre Club as well as active participation in fundraising and volunteer work. The HTC was formed to meet a need in the community for our home-educated students to gain experience and utilize their talent in a productive way. We seek to benefit the community at large with exposing them to the arts as well.

Our actual activities include the writing of the production script, auditions, rehearsals, fundraising and putting on the production. We are not for profit, but for community enrichment. All performances are donation admittance only.


Upschool is open for registration. Please read this 2021-2022 class schedule sheet closely. There is a lot of info there. Also, please read the instructions for registration closely to make sure you submit properly. Contact me for any questions. Julianne Denney

Are you interested in live video Spanish lessons with a native speaker? My boys (10 and 12) and I have been learning Spanish with a native speaker in Argentina for the past several months. We’ve had great progress with this method. He is very engaging and encouraging with the kids. This format works great for me because I do not speak Spanish so I can learn right along with them.  And…having a face-face meeting keeps me accountable. If you are interested, he is still taking new students into these classes. Lessons are $15 per month per student (payment via PayPal). The lessons are offered via Zoom Monday 9:00 am for elementary or 9:00 am Tuesday for Middle school and High school.  Students in these Zoom meetings are all local children. He also offers awesome private tutoring sessions!  I am happy to answer basic questions here, but for more information or to sign up please contact him directly at


I offer classes to help students in their Spanish language studies

-Spanish 1  for beginners

-Spanish 2  for students who have successfully completed Spanish 1

-Spanish 3  advanced class for students who want to continue their study of Spanish

Writing and History Classes with The Reading Cottage


The Wild+Free group in Whitefish will be opening the group back up to new members this Fall! As many of our active families from this past year are heading back to school, we have about 10 new openings for our group. Our first meeting is tentatively Friday September 3rd at the learning Pavilion at Lion Mountain. After attending our first meeting, you can join our private FB group where I post about the group details and schedule events. We meet the first and third Fridays at 10AM  every month, with occasional park playdates and field trips on the other Fridays. We meet at various locations around the Valley.

So What is Wild + Free?

W+F is a community of homeschooling moms that originally started on Instagram ( #wildandfreemama #wildandfreegroupideas ) to support and encourage each other in our homeschool and mothering journeys. Then these mamas started getting together for nature walks and now this community has grown to thousands of families and local groups all over the world!

Go here to become an official wild+free member

Wild + Free Whitefish is a group of homeschooling mamas that want our children to not only receive a quality education, but also to experience the adventure, freedom and wonder of childhood. To get dirty, climb trees, explore and ask questions out in nature. Our meetings will range from educational nature walks to nature themed crafts, classes taken together as a group, hikes, holiday parties, and storytime… And we will have monthly moms night out! The kids’ age range is from 4-9 but all ages are welcome. 

Whether you are a Waldorf family, unschooling, Charlotte Mason, Classic etc.. all our welcome! Come spend time in the forest and share in nature exploration throughout the seasons with us! I look forward to connecting with more like-minded mothers here in the Flathead. Feel free to DM me or email me if you have any questions at

There is a large homeschool community in the Flathead, but we have a lower participation rate in some of the amazing things that people have set up to do. If you would like to add something you want to do that isn’t offered, we love it if someone takes it up! But also take part in some of the things that others offer as well!  This is a basic overview, but there are many, many more things offered. 

Give me a call if you have any questions as well. If you have a recurring activity or service you would like to add, please email me.
