for Teens

who want to
instead of just surviving

The modern school system leaves endless gaps in our teen's abilities to be creative, solve problems, be resourceful, build confidence, or love the process of learning. They are left to fit a one size fits all education model that focuses on their teachability, not their ability to learn. SKILLED CHANGES ALL OF THAT!



Modern teens struggle more than any generation before them in almost every aspect of life. As a former public high school teacher, Founder, Legit SaraJane, saw how incredibly behind teens are when it comes to the skills they will need to survive as adults. So after only a couple of years in the classroom, she left to build The Skilled Institute. A Florida-based Private Umbrella School that teaches REAL-LIFE Skills to will help your teens THRIVE now and throughout adulthood. 

Life- Skills courses are offered in the South Florida area as LIVE recurring classes for homeschooled teens.

Each lesson is recorded and shared as Video Lesson on The Legit SaraJane App by Online-based Students.

As an Umbrella School, SKILLED manages all of the records required by the state to meet education and graduation requirements.



Innovative Approach

We are breaking the mold of traditional schooling. With an Unschool foundation, TSI teaches not only practical skills, but also resourcefulness, self-motivation, and love of learning needed to facilitate true lifelong knowledge and the desire and ability to fulfill the careers and lifestyles they were created for.


Using Biblical truths as the basis for our lessons, TSI offers a unique ability to model grace, faithfulness, purpose, and confidence without getting lost in the negative stereotypes of legalistic Christianity. 

Welcoming ALL teens, no matter their faith, we strive to be a community of people who come together each day to become the Best Possible Version of Themselves. 


Foundational Teaching


While the school system tells us that academic achievement is the key to success, every living generation is proof that this is just not true. Instead, SKILLED focuses on life skills and empowering learners to seek out knowledge in ways that excite them so they can be successful in ALL situations, not just traditional education-based ones. 


Sustainability Minded

With upcoming recessions, it's more important than it has been in 100 years for our teens to know how to provide for themselves and their families as they enter adulthood. We share everyday life skills along with skills like canning, sewing, gardening, and more. This way our students will have ALL the skills they need to live the lifestyle of their dreams, no matter what's happening economically.
