The CHEB Board is currently evaluating our COVID-19 plans for 2021-2022. Currently, we plan to meet in person for classes. Students are not required to bring their own desks and do not currently have to wear masks. Additionally, the kitchens will once again be open during lunch break so that students may opt to bring hot or cold lunches. All plans related to student safety and COVID-19 are subject to change as needed based on the guidelines of our host facility and recommendations from local and state officials.
The academic centers are designed to give parents assistance with core and elective classes in the middle and high school years. We function with a "university style" model. Students attend classes one day each week and are given assignments to complete daily. This is an environment where instructors join with parents for the purpose of educating their children in an accelerated, independent fashion.
The academic centers are cooperatives of teachers who serve as facilitators in the homeschooling experience. Our courses are not meant to replace daily instruction from the parents. We expect that parents will work with their students on assignments on a daily basis. We believe that the academic centers model will not work for some students. However, for the students it is designed to serve, we believe it is an excellent option.
Through years of experience, we have found that certain students do poorly with a "university model" environment and would get a superior education through other alternatives. The academic centers are not suited for students who have had trouble with motivation, study habits, academic performance or attitude but are excellent opportunities for those with special academic needs, such as gifted/talented, in sports/equestrian training, or other extra-curricular pursuits that require flexible schooling options.
