Courses for Home Schooled Students
Covenant Classical School is pleased to partner with homeschooling families with Upper School aged students (grades 6-10) as they seek to educate their children in the various subject areas available at Covenant. Extracurricular activities such as choir, band, and intramural sports are also an option for homeschool students.
After the regular enrollment period has ended, classes are made available for qualified applicants who are not full-time regular enrollees of Covenant.
Students who successfully enroll as a Covenant part-time homeschool student must commit to attending regularly all classes for which they have registered for the duration of the academic school year. The student will be considered an integral member of the class with all the rights and privileges thereof, and, therefore, will be expected to participate fully and complete all class assignments, including projects and tests. A special homeschool report will be issued each quarter and (on successful completion of the class) a certificate will be issued at the end of the year, certifying that the course has been taken.
Students are expected to wear uniforms to class and to abide by all general policies applicable to full time Covenant students as delineated in the Parent Handbook.
Students are expected to arrive for the class on time and then leave when the class is over. Students may not stay at Covenant unattended. The parents are asked to contact the school office in the event that they are going to be late in picking up the student.
Attendance as a part-time homeschooled student does not qualify the student to participate in activities of the school unrelated to the particular class taken, such as Houses, homeroom, and other special events. The student is invited to attend all field trips relating to their specific class but must pay additional admissions fees particular to the event. Since lockers are designated for full-time students, we encourage families of part-time students to provide a backpack of sufficient size to transport and store all books and supplies. Finally, arrangements may also be made to take standardized tests on a per test cost basis.
Interested families are required to apply to Covenant through our regular admissions process. Part-time students may only matriculate in courses for which they qualify, as determined through admissions testing. Each student is limited to no more than seventeen class periods per week. Part-time enrollment is normally only valid for one academic year per child. Re-enrollment is possible but contingent on space considerations and the approval of the Head of School.
Course offerings for the 2013-2014 school year are shown below. Home schooled students working at the indicated grade levels may apply for the respective courses. Annual tuition is $300 per weekly course period. (For example, annual tuition for a course that meets 4 periods per week is $1200.)
