Homeschool Partnerships

Alternative Education Program is our homeschool partnership program

Whitefield Academy understands that families with homeschool students have unique needs. Our desire is to partner with parents in providing the best education opportunities for their students. Our Alternative Education Program offers homeschooling families a structured in-school environment to help parents maximize the benefits of a homeschool education. The program provides parents the opportunity to have their students participate in learning alongside Whitefield students.

Grades 2-5

Elementary students can choose to join one or more of the special area classes.  Students can participate in computer, music, art, Spanish or PE classes. These classes are offered once a week at scheduled times.  Grades 3-5 may join elementary choir. Fourth and Fifth grade students may participate in band or orchestra.

COST:  $600 yearly, per class

Grades 6-8

Middle School students may select to participate in any of our regularly scheduled academic courses; including band, orchestra and choir.

COST: $800 yearly, per class

Grades 9-12

High School students have the opportunity to participate in any regularly scheduled academic course. Students will complete all course work according to the requirements outlined in the course syllabus and or by the teacher. Please note, course offerings are subject to change.

COST: $500 per semester, per class

Grading

Quarterly reports will be given to the parents. Alternative Education Program students may also take the Standardized Achievement Test in the spring of the year.

A fee of $100 will be assessed for this testing.

Sports

Students will be eligible to play on elementary and middle school sports teams (some are intramural teams).  Sports at the varsity level are not available due to state regulations.  Students playing on a team will be required to adhere to the same local and state regulations required of Whitefield students. This includes having a sports physical and paying a $50.00 athletic fee per student, per sport (an additional team fee may be required for some sports). These fees are in addition to the program application fee.
