The Home Study option is for the parent (learning coach) who seeks to be very actively involved in all aspects of their child’s daily education. Parents should be fully committed to creating a compelling learning environment, to selecting appropriate curriculum, to providing challenging lessons and to being the best Learning Coach for their children. We will support parents and scholars by providing an independent study option that includes:
- credentialed Educational Facilitators
- a wide range of approved vendors for parent choice
- competitive instructional funds to support instruction
- a subscription package of online supplemental learning
- academic counseling for middle & high school scholars
With the help of caring, credentialed Educational Facilitators (EF), we offer flexibility in how families educate their scholars and what curriculum is used. Our EFs provide support in the form of academic guidance, parent support and instruction and guidance with state compliance. Both the scholar and the parent work with their assigned credentialed Educational Facilitator (EF) to develop an educational plan based on family’s educational philosophy and scholar’s learning style.
Our Home Study scholars in grades 6th-12th grade receive instructional funds that are set aside for each scholar to use towards the purchase of approved, non-sectarian educational materials, curriculum, and services. Scholars in 6th-8th will be allocated $2,700 and scholars in grades 9th-12th will receive $3,000. Parents, EF's and scholars work together to make purchasing decisions based on personal goals, learning styles and academic progress. Choosing from a wide range of vendors offering non-sectarian educational products and services, parents, EF's and scholars work together to make purchasing decisions based on scholar’s goals, learning styles and academic progress. Instructional Funds may be used for core curriculum or classes as well as enrichment.
