Flex Home Learning
Full Time at Home
At Heritage Flex Academy, parents have the option to teach their students at home five days a week, using classically inspired curriculum designed with the parent educator in mind. Each family is provided with support from a highly-qualified credentialed teacher, known as an Academic Adviser. Our Academic Advisers have served many years in the home school community and are familiar with a broad scope of home-school friendly curriculum. They can help parents to navigate the classically inspired curriculum options we recommend, and they can consider parent suggestions for new curriculum when the coursework meets our rigorous standards. Curriculum selection is truly a partnership where the needs of the parents and the students are carefully considered and a course of study is tailored to the talents of each student.Academic Advisers meet weekly in person or via Zoom with each student and their parent individually to monitor progress and support learning. The teachers are available to answer questions, or for consultation, coaching, and support.
Families have the option to enroll their student in quality enrichment activities on Exploration Monday, providing students with the opportunity to explore unique interests and content in subject areas not offered in the core curriculum. Exploratory classes meet for approximately one hour per week for three, six-week sessions per school year. Exploration Monday provides a well-rounded rotation of classes that allow students to seek a deeper understanding of the core academic content and explore personal interests, all while receiving personalized attention from dedicated instructors. . Classes include Latin, culinary arts, art, student leadership, yearbook, and physical education. Classes may eventually include music, theater arts, and other options, depending on student interest and available teachers.
