Before registering, please note:
Classes are offered once per week, on Wednesday afternoons from 2-4:30, from September 4, 2019-June 3, 2020.
Registration is for ALL Collective Courses (Financial Foundations, Brush Drawing/Nature Journaling, Recitation/Public Speaking and U.S. History) Students who register MUST ATTEND all classes - they can not be separated.
Registration does NOT cover the P.E. Course. We are still diligently crafting our highschool P.E. Course and it will be offered later on this year and you will register for that separately when enrollment opens (mid October 2019).
Class fees cover all courses and syllabi, as well as all materials for the Dave Ramsey Financial Foundations course. However, it does not cover any other needed books and art supplies. A complete book and supply list will be provided to you once your registration and enrollment is verified.
With the exception of the Financial Foundations course, all classes will be taught using the Charlotte Mason method of education. Students will use only living texts (no traditional text books) and utilize public speaking and presentations as well as written narrations and reports as the core of their educational work.
Classes are open to 9th-12th graders. Although learning takes place collectively (across several grades), your own child's age and grade will determine the extent of, and the expectations placed on their work. Eighth graders are permitted to register, but please note that the reading level of the text, particularly for the History course, is at a high school/college level.
There are no prerequisites to any of our courses.
Each course may be counted for high school credit (varying amounts). Your child's instructor will work with you to recommend a grade and assist in recording their credits earned upon completion. Additional work outside of class expected and required for high school credit in each course.
Students are permitted to drive themselves or may be dropped off by their parents at the door to HCA.
