I want my kids to be able to learn and socialize with other kids in a safe place. I’m worried about their academic progress if schools go online again. And I need my sanity back!

If this sounds like you, a parent stressed out about your child’s education and socialization – and your own mental health as well – we have the solution.

Flex Academies Social Learning Clubs offer a place for supervised learning and fun that is :

SAFE – All instructors are background checked and screened by Flex Academies and are qualified to work with kids in an educational setting. The facility is kid-friendly and sanitized per CDC guidelines. All instructors and students wear masks.

SOCIAL – Kids get to be with small groups of other kids as they learn and play. Parents tell us that since the pandemic forced schools to close, children miss seeing their friends and learning with them. They want their children to interact with others, face-to-face.

SCHEDULED – Sessions run from 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m or 9:00am - 1:00pm. The learning day consists of supervision of online learning and fun enrichment sessions in subjects like yoga, Spanish and music. A day full of learning and fun with friends translates into a productive (or relaxing!) day for Mom or Dad.

OFFERS SCHOLARSHIPS – Flex Academies and our partners at The Lane are a socially conscious company that’s always looking to give back. That’s why we offer scholarships for children of professionals on the frontlines fighting the pandemic, and for kids in need. Click here to learn how you can donate and be a part of this effort.

Whether you call it a “pod” a “microschool” or something else, it’s a solution to a problem that parents like you are facing this Fall.


A parent comes to Flex Academies with a list of families who want to participate OR Flex Academies pairs families up to form a pod.

Flex secures the space, the instructors and the scheduling. (Flex is actively looking for spaces and partners to host social learning clubs, so if you manage a facility and are interested, contact us.)

Pricing is based on number of students in the group and location specifics.
