Homeschool

Highlands Latin School has two options for homeschool students.   

Enrichment:  One day a week drop-off program. 

This program provides homeschoolers with academic reinforcement through phonics mastery, literature/history discussions, arithmetic games/drills, foreign language conversations, and science labs while also affording students with such enrichment opportunities as debate, mock trial, theater, entrepreneurship, art, music and possibly others.  Parents are expected to offer 1hr/week to assist with teaching, supervision or clean-up.

Homeschool Hybrid: 

The homeschool hybrid option is a 2-day program.  Instruction in the core academic subjects (grammar, reading/literature, composition, Language, science, and history) is provided in the classroom, where teachers instruct, lead discussions, and facilitate reading, recitation and presentations.  Parents guide their student through mastering the material throughout the week via homework help, exploring more depth in areas of interest, and assessments. Parents are not required to attend the homeschool days, but are strongly encouraged to volunteer to assist teachers, supervise recess or help with clean-up.  A once-a-month parent group provides parents with homeschooling support and help.

Class sizes are kept to a minimum to increase participation and ensure a high level of attention is granted each student.  Lessons are incremental, content is age-appropriate, and students learn the important skill of quality written work completed in a timely manner. Students will benefit from classroom accountability, peer encouragement and academic interaction. Parents will benefit from the academic support provided by the teachers, 

We look forward to meeting your family.
