Welcome to Ahead Of The Curve Homeschool Academy!
Founded 2021


Welcome Parents and Students! 

Serving homeschool students Grades 3rd-8th Virtually
Flexible Schedule With Live Instruction, Grading, and Academic Accountability Weekly

Ahead Of The Curve Homeschool Academy was founded by Shauntelle Modeste of Lewisville, Texas in 2021. After serving as a classroom teacher, reading specialist, and teacher trainer in the public schools she knew she wanted to serve in a private setting as a tutor to reach underserved students who were seeking an alternative to public school.


Modeste began a private tutor business, then started homeschooling her daughter alongside other bright kids from her home in Texas.


When Covid hit the nation, she was led to open the virtual doors of AOTCHA and has since served a multitude of students from around the country.


In addition, to our school Mrs. Modeste provides progams for students and parents which can be found here.

AOTCHA serves wonderful, diverse families across the U.S. online. We provide personalized reading, writing, science, social studies, and math classes in a supportive and challenging environment.

Our live weekly online classes and flexible independent self-paced studies are perfect for upper and middle school homeschoolers seeking a structured, engaging learning environment taught by certified educators. In addition to online learning, we offer field trip opportunities for local students in the DFW area.


This is the only online learning of its kind that helps often overlooked, yet bright students become confident and excellent students through engaging, high-quality, and focused lessons and instruction via zoom.

Utilizing a classically inspired model with full instructors support, grading, and feedback. Students will have access inside a private LMS (learning management system) to view downloadable assignments, videos, and lectures in addition to live classes.


The standard class size averages 5-10. Bright minds deserve a robust, focused, accountable education that lays the groundwork for challenging coursework now and future college work.  

Together students will explore high quality literature, poetry, and comprehensive history that trains the mind for disciplined and critical thinking during teacher-led live classes.

Our Mission Statement

To provide a learning environment that reaches the spiritual, intellectual, and academic needs of all students. Our vision is to build strong creative minds who desire to never stop learning. It's our goal to instill good values, virtues, and Godly wisdom into each and every child. 

Live Online Classes & Office Hours

In the live online classes, learners are part of an engaging learning experience with students from across the United States and around the world. Students will log in to the zoom portal once-a-week on Tuesdays and join the certified instructor and classmates for discussion and peer learning.

Full-time students (those who have registered for ALL classes offered in our program) will have classes from 9:00am CT to 3:00pm CT.  Breaks will be provided throughout the day.

During live classes students will have the opportunity to dialogue and learn from other wise peers, listen to lectures on the subject matter, and engage in fun, interactive learning games to enhance retention of content. 

The remaining of the week students will work independently and submit assignments in the google classroom portal to be graded. Students become active members of a learning community that explores the content with a certified teacher leading the way.

The learner is also able to collaborate with their peers and grow in their learning through various instructional activities. 

Office hours will be provided as requested by the student for individual help outside of live classes.

What transformational change did your child gain from Ahead Of The Curve Homeschool Academy?

After researching for a better online placement program for my son, I came across a social media post for Ahead of the Curve Homeschool Academy and reached out for more information.  Upon speaking with the Founder and Director, I knew I found the place for my son to continue his homeschool journey based on the knowledge, skill set, curriculum overview, and professional and personal touch of Ms. Modeste.  We had tried a few other online programs and none were up to the standard, feel, nor knew how to relate to homeschooled students like Ms. Modeste. The teaching services are delivered in such a personal and relatable way and tailored to each student making all the difference in their confidence as students and what they are able to produce in their work efforts.  What my son retained and learned he could share with others and it showed he truly believed in his learning skills and he knew not just memorized materials.   The curriculum for the middle school program was above grade and allowed each student to reach their own potential rather than be pushed or held back because of ‘teaching to the test’ or other students’ abilities.  The caliber of lessons, assignments, and supplemental reinforcements were enhancements to the lessons. As a homeschool parent, you want to partner with instructors who align with your teaching philosophy and Ms. Modeste is the epitome of professionalism, brilliant at her delivery, and communication was always direct and timely. After attending Ahead of the Curve Academy, my son’s confidence in presenting information he researched and learned increased and improved greatly.  He now speaks up more and volunteers to lead in youth group discussions. His writing is above grade level as indicated by his recent end-of-the-year evaluations and testing. Ahead of the Curve Academy was a direct impact on increasing and improving his writing caliber, ability, and confidence. "
