Mz. Chalkdust says "Let's talk about the elephant in the room. Today's classroom education experience is lacking, kids are falling behind now, more than ever before." At Chalkdust Academy, we won't sugar coat anything, we get down to the business of education, good old fashioned back to the basics education. Our children deserve better than what they are getting in school these days!

Recognizing the tremendous need for a reading program to enhance skills for children and adults. Kathleen is working tirelessly to expand Chalkdust Academy by adding additional progams to provide a bridge between the home school community as well as what our children are not getting in the public schools.
This beautiful school located in the heart of Mecca was built in 1901 and serves as the location of Chalkdust Academy and Reading Boot Camp. The school features classrooms with chalk boards on the walls, desks in place, a beuatiful gymnasium and a fantastic auditorium with stage for future productions.
The Department of Education removed cursive handwriting from the curricilum in 2010. Chalkdust Academy has introduced this lost art back into existence. We bring students back to the classroom, surrounded by wonderful slate chalkboards where students both young and old get to improve their hand writing skills. New classes will be starting soon!
