HOW DOES THE EDUCATION WORK?

We have a full education site with a wide variety of subjects. Currently over 60 classes are offered. Our classes never fill up and they are always available. We price the classes really low to make it affordable for the large families "like ours". Our subscription service offers access to all of our classes! Each class will have a lesson, videos, quizzes and badge rewards. You will also receive a certificate of completion at the end of each course. Some classes also have a live interactive teacher presentation.

We have been using this site for about two years now. My son had learning disabilities and by using Minecraft when he studies he retains so much more.

I cannot say enough good things about Skrafty! We have not used the classes yet, but my daughter loves having the freedom to build and create with friends. Playing on Skrafty has really helped her creativity, too.

I love Skrafty and cannot be more enthusiastic about the server for my son to play minecraft. He has taken a free course that Holly offered for advent before Christmas last year. The ease of use, the content involved, the attention to detail and the prompt resolution of any problems makes SKRAFTY a class act and invaluable to our homeschool. My son loves minecraft and the Skrafty server has been wonderful. So glad for it!

My daughter has taken several classes and she loves them all. The lessons are extremely educational and she has fun building the projects and is extremely proud of them. I highly recommend. We have the monthly unlimited option and love it!

My daughter loves Skrafty and plays regularly on their server. We've taken a few classes and are currently working through the chemistry/physics one. It definitely reinforces the material covered in the textbook and gives my minecraft loving kiddo a build to demonstrate what she's learned. I don't feel like it adds anything extra to the textbook material but gets my daughter excited for each lesson.

My kids have taken many Skrafty classes and loved them. The government class was by far the best. The kids get to "live" through different government styles, allowing them to experience some aspects of each style. Highly recommended!

My children play both the free side of SKrafty as well as participate in the classes. Their favorite classes are the ones where they are engaged with leaders and it is interactive.... with their Absolute FAVORITE being Government. They will remember the different types of government because they "lived" through each type right there on Minecraft! BRILLIANT! I would love to see more classes like this.

But the best thing about SKrafty is that I can trust it to be safe for my children to play on. The moderators and admins are wonderful to deal with ... but the Filters are TIGHT! So even the word "hate" is not allowed. I love that I don't have to worry about who or what they will be exposed to on SKrafty. It is a blessing for our family... and we highly recommend it!

The best class so far has been Government. There is a short, live online presentation about different forms of government and then various homework building and role playing assignments to go along with it. In the democracy lesson, there is an opportunity for kids to run for office. My son (7th grade) wrote a speech and then gave his speech during the live session, plus he campaigned on the role playing server. Overall a great time and worked great as an elective.
