We partner with home study families to provide flexible options for scholars to thrive academically, socially, and emotionally.

CCS’s home study (Options) program is our home study program for grades TK-12. Our program allows parents to be fully involved in all aspects of their child’s daily education. Parents should be fully committed to:

  1. Select & implement appropriate curriculum from approved community provider list. (See provider information below.)
  2. Create a compelling learning environment every school day.
  3. Provide challenging lessons and experiences for learning according to the scholar’s personalized learning plan.
  4. Strive to be the best primary instructor for their scholars.

The home study learning coach (parent) must desire an active involvement in their child’s education on a daily basis and be fully committed to being the scholar’s primary instructor. Our caring, credentialed Supervising Teachers (ST) provide ongoing guidance and support to families, monitor the use of instructional funds, and keep families informed about CCS enrichment activities.

Scholars and learning coaches work with their assigned, credentialed ST to develop a custom personalized learning plan for scholars. Throughout the year, families connect with their ST to discuss assigned work, manage progress, and review samples and activity logs. In addition to the academic support, each scholar is allocated Educational Support funds. The funds are used to purchase non-sectarian curriculum, supplies, lessons, and classes to enhance scholar learning. These materials and services are provided by businesses on our approved community provider list.

As an independent study program, the learning coach and the Supervising Teacher work in partnership throughout the year to make sure the scholar is progressing at an appropriate pace. Scholars are expected to participate in educational activities on all school days per the school calendar.

Using Time Effectively

Families within our independent study program tailor their approach to education based on their preferences and schedules. Some dedicate more extended periods to specific subjects a few days each week, while others prefer shorter, daily sessions. Whether concentrating on studies during early mornings or later in the day, every family has its distinctive learning and teaching style. Recognizing the diversity in family situations and schedules, our program prioritizes flexibility. We understand that each family is unique, and our commitment is to offer considerable freedom while ensuring personalized support throughout the learning journey.
