Homeschool Academy

 

Holy Cross Catholic School is an accredited K-8 school dedicated to building faith and inspiring minds. With Christ as our foundation, we strive to develop the gifts of each child, knowing that they will one day use those gifts to serve God and others.

What is the Homeschool Academy?
The Homeschool Academy makes certain classes (called “Specials”) available to homeschool students, including: Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, Art, Music, PE, and Computers/Technology. Recess, and Library.

When is it offered?
Homeschool Specials are offered daily, in accordance with the existing class schedules. Students are welcome to participate in as many classes as they choose, based on current availability. It is possible for homeschool students to participate in classes above or below their grade level. The principal will work with parents on the most appropriate level for their child.

What does it cost?

Additional children enrolled in the program pay only $7 per class. For two days/week, the cost is $7 per class per day and additional children pay only $5 per class. A one-time enrollment/supply fee of $30 per student covers the semester and is due with your application. The enrollment fee is waived for Holy Cross parishioners.
