Educating your kids is not all fun and games.
Planning for the future has never been more difficult. The stakes are high and trusting strangers with your greatest and most loved investments is getting harder and harder to stomach.
You’re trying your best, but you know you could be doing more to prepare them for life.
...unsure you can give your child the exposure to knowledge and the tutoring they need
...paralyzed at having to organize all the subjects and experiences you want your child to have
...just plain overwhelmed by the multitude of important choices and decisions
It is okay if you are feeling this way! You certainly aren't the only parent wondering what in the world to do when the world feels like it's spinning out of control.
You are in control of your child’s education, and you aren’t alone.
We created The Stay Out of School Summit to help parents
STOP acting out of fear and START making a plan of action
so that their children can grow into praiseworthy adults.
15 experts over 3 days will teach you how you can:
identify your child's strengths and interests
form a plan to equip your child for their life
know where to find the tools to start executing on that plan
It’s time for you to take the reins and learn how to make the most of your time with your child. You won’t always be there for them.
Meet Your Hosts
Paul Aspen founded Civilized Animal Productions to tie ancient wisdom and modern methods together in an effort to deliver the best educational tools and supporting resources possible.
He married Jordan, a homeschooled artisan, so that their breadth of experience could support that vision—from university classroom to sewing circle and beyond.
The foundation for all education is parents working with their children. It defines how children respect and interact with every other potential tutor. Explore the tools we have to help your child become a mature, responsible adult you’ll be proud of.
Our goal is to empower parents, teachers, and experts to all work together—and with the children!
The Stay Out of School Summit ran from July 26-28 with a variety of presentations to choose from each day.
We don't know about you, but we prefer to leave our house as little as possible these days! You can tune into the summit from anywhere with Internet access.
Presentations will be about an hour long. Each presenter will provide you with a worksheet to follow along with so you can make your action plan while tuning in. The presentations will be available for 24 hours to encourage you to stop waiting for the right time and start creating a game plan for your child’s education right away alongside hundreds of other parents.
You’ll also have access to a private Facebook group where we share resources, build relationships, and encourage one another.
After registering, you will have the opportunity to upgrade to a VIP ticket. These options are designed to help you get the most out of everything included in the summit, from simply being able to take your time going through all the presentations to giveaway entries and other bonuses.
Not your average online summit
There are a lot of summits, trainings, and workshops out there. What makes this one different?
This summit was created specifically for parents who are trying to figure out what path to take this school year and beyond. This isn't just a collection of general parenting advice or another “homeschool” summit. We selected every single presentation with the uncertainty of current circumstances in mind.
Whether you plan to homeschool, want to send your kids to school, or something in between, this summit will help you chart your course. The best part? We’ll still be here for you when the summit’s over.

Why an elephant?
Is this for me even if I don’t want to homeschool?
When is this whole thing happening?
How long will the videos be available?
Will all the speakers get my email address?
Can I chat with the presenters?
How do you find your speakers?
Are the videos captioned or transcribed?
I still have questions!
It's time to…
- learn how to identify your child's strengths and interests
- form a plan to equip your child for life
- know where to find the tools to start executing on that plan
Are you ready to think outside the box and help your children to learn outside the classroom?
