Please reach us at if you cannot find an answer to your question or if you have a question about the Stella Maris Explorers non-profit.
The Stella Maris Explorers Club is a Catholic organization, but we welcome any family that feels the Explorers Club is a good fit for them.
No. The Explorers Club is an enrichment activity. Our science and art lessons complement a wide array of curriculum and teaching pedagogies.
Dues for the semester are $65 per club member. Semester dues cover all activities and supplies for the 15 club meetings a semester. Field trips are optional and are the only additional fee.
Yes! There is a discount of $5 for each sibling. First club member in the family is $65 and each additional family member is $60.
Younger siblings are welcome and tag along for free. Older siblings are welcome to join the Explorers Club on a case by case basis, please email us to inquire. Older siblings, however, are always welcome to bring their own independent study and find an area to accomplish it - there are always extra tables available for this. We hope to have an auxiliary program for older sibling by January 2024.
If this is your first semester with the Explorers Club or your child needs help using the restroom, then yes, you must stay for club meetings.
Yes! We welcome parents to complete a survey in the middle of each semester to help us plan for the next semester. And we happily welcome help for any parent who wants to help lead activities.
Stella Maris Explorers Club offers families a low-stress way to incorporate hands-on science and art enrichment into their unique homeschools while planting and growing the seeds of faith children need to flourish. Explorers thrive among friends, and parents enjoy the weekly opportunity to visit and work with like-minded families.
