Home School

Building a customized program with credentialed teachers

Sample Daily Schedule
Due to the fact that the homeschool experience is customized to meet the needs of each individual student and his/her family schedule, it is difficult to provide a typical daily schedule that will exactly replicate what your family might experience. Some guiding questions we will ask to set the schedule are:
  • Do you want to have an early morning start, early afternoon finish?
  • Do you prefer to start later and finish later?
  • Does the parent have a work schedule we will need to accommodate?
  • Are there other siblings whose schedules we need to work around?
  • Is there a sport or other enrichment schedule we need to accommodate?
A typical day consists of four (50-60 minute) periods focusing on the content areas of Reading/Language Arts, Math, Science and Social Studies.
In addition to the academic periods we also ask about what physical education you will put into your schedule.
Primary Grades: Three or four (50-60 minute) periods per week
Upper Grades: Four or Five (50-60 minute) periods per week
Physical Education can include your child’s extra-curricular sports activities such as swim team, gymnastics, martial arts or participation on an organized sports team.

Art lessons can either be integrated into the four content classes or can be taught as individual lessons.
Students will be required to turn in work from all content areas at their regular meetings to document the learning time and work content. Our primary goal is to ensure that students are meeting or exceeding standards and the actual work will provide evidence of this.

Even with the advantages of a customized schedule for each child, homeschool is not for everyone. To ensure student success parents must take significant responsibility for the day to day monitoring of student assignments and scheduling.
