LAMAcademy is a micro-school program for homeschool families. The program uses a variety of curriculum resources and is facilitated by a certified, licensed Virginia teacher, as permitted by the Commonwealth of Virginia Approved Tutor Provision *. The year-round program includes eight hours each week of off-site instruction at the LAMA Learning Center and eight hours of self-paced, home-based instruction using an online curriculum.



Mission Statement


LAMAcademy develops the core of a student: intellectually, creatively, and emotionally. Students are provided academic support for school success and given the opportunity to discover their own, unique talents by exposing them to programs in literacy (reading, writing, speaking), STEM, Social Studies, and Afrocentric Self-Development.

Approved Tutor/Teacher Provision


“§22.1-254(A) of the Code of Virginia identifies the ways parents can comply with Virginia’s compulsory attendance requirements. It includes a provision that allows a parent to satisfy compulsory attendance requirements by having “…such child taught by a tutor or teacher of qualifications prescribed by the Board of Education and approved by the division superintendent…” as an alternative to attendance at a public or private school. Under the certified tutor provision:

  • The tutor or teacher must have current Virginia teacher certification.

  • Certification must be approved by the division superintendent

  • A parent or non-parent who is Virginia certified may teach using §22.1-254(A).

  • Instruction may take place in the home or outside the home.

  • End-of-year assessment is not required.

  • Yearly notification is not required as long as certification is current; new or updated certification should be submitted.


Notification should take place in the form of a letter to the division superintendent, not the Notice of Intent form (LAMA Learning will provide families with a letter template). Certification documents must be included for the superintendent’s approval. In the letter, be sure to clearly state that you are in compliance with §22.1-254(A).

DO NOT FILE a Notice of Intent form. DO NOT check option (ii) on the Notice of Intent form although it shows “certified tutor” as the second option to homeschool. Tutors who use the NOI form indicate they are in compliance with §22.1-245.1, the homeschool statute. The homeschool statute requires end-of-year assessment and yearly filing. Because a certified tutor option is also included on the Notice of Intent form, understandably, some division personnel are confused. Be prepared to explain the difference if there are questions.”
