About Us


Lab Rat Academy originated from a vision from a home school mom looking for educational resources for middle and high school students. It was brought to my attention that there were no science related educational resources in the local community that offered assistance in teaching in-depth, hands-on science classes. I am grateful to God and Valerie for their help in starting up Lab Rat Academy in which I do what I love… working with kids and science.


Teaching the basics of reading, writing and arithmetic is hard enough, but to get into the nitty-gritty details of science sometimes goes beyond what homeschooling parents have time, knowledge or materials for. Lab Rat Academy takes on the task of piquing your student’s interest in the deeper subjects of science that will give them the base for maybe someday finding the cure for cancer.
