Homeschool

HLS Cottage School

Highlands Latin School's homeschool program is available in both Fort Collins and Loveland.  This support program meets one day per week  for 34 weeks.

Instruction is provided in the classroom, where knowledgeable teachers instruct, lead discussions, facilitate reading, recitation and presentations.  Parents provide homework, individual assistance and depth throughout the week. Parents are not required to attend the homeschool day, but are welcome to volunteer or sit in on classes. 

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.
