What is a University-Model® school?
A University-Model® school is a blend of the most positive aspects from traditional public and private schools as well as home schools, to give elementary through high school a highly successful, college-preparatory education, set in a Christian environment. The key is professional classroom instruction partnered with caring parenting at home.
The immediate goal of the model is quality, cost-effective, college-preparatory education accomplished in a way that gives parents more time for imparting the faith and values they hold precious. The ultimate goal is that of producing wholesome, competent men and women of character who make a positive difference for Christ in the next generation.
University-Model® schooling uses a university-style schedule adapted to the elementary, junior, and senior high levels. Professional teachers, teaching in their areas of expertise conduct central classroom instruction.
Elementary students attend classes on Tuesday and Thursday while secondary students go to school on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Students spend alternate days at home where parents continue their instruction and monitor student progress.
Teachers provide parents with detailed instructions for days spent at home.
The model caters to a wide variety of student needs by allowing a range of enrollment opportunities. A student may choose to take only one or two classes, or may opt to take a full academic load. Much like courses listed in a college catalog, each course description contains information about the course, prerequisites, and parental involvement for that class.
Tuition is paid per course, per semester.
