We believe children are unique and should learn in ways that best meet their needs. It goes without saying that parents want what’s best for their children, and homeschooling allots parents the freedom to cater to their child’s education and maximize their potential.
HERE WHEN YOU NEED US – The COVID-19 virus has changed the way we live. At HCHC we’ve changed the way we teach students. We’re adhering to the CDC guidelines to keep students and teachers safe. We’re excited to offer homeschooling families SECULAR courses that are faith-neutral, non-religious and nature-based; and a FAITH-BASED curriculum that offers a Dual-Enrollment Program for junior and seniors in high school.
BLENDED LEARNING MODEL – Online instruction is delivered by a teacher who interacts LIVE with students once a week via the Zoom platform. With support, supervision and guidance from parents, students are encouraged to complete their school assignments/projects during the other 6 days of the week. We encourage daily study; at least 60 minutes per school subject. Parents can opt to have 100% of instruction delivered online using an asynchronous method where students learn at their own pace utilizing curriculum that may include pre-recorded video, text, charts, graphs and images.
IN-PERSON LEARNING – For those parents interested, we also offer in-person courses in and around Howard County, Maryland. These classes are held outdoors in nature with a small pod of students (max. 8). We also facilitate group field trips to many places like local college campuses. Parents who value small classes and increased safety, find that we’re a perfect fit.
COVID SAFETY ENACTMENT PLAN – At the beginning of the year we were having about – I’d say 12 to 15 students per class. Now that we’re dealing with the pandemic and COVID virus, we’re no longer meeting at our brick and mortar location. We’ve reduced our class sizes down to eight (8) students max.
CDC GUIDELINES – Students are required to bring and wear masks. Students are encouraged to wash their hands frequently. Temperatures are taken at the top of the school day. Students have access to hand sanitizer and are encouraged to use it. Social distancing is practiced and achieved on-location at local farms and parks.
