This ten-hour class establishes a framework for homeschooling and will appeal to both seasoned and new homeschooling parents. It is also a great course for those parents who are simply considering the homeschool option for their children’s education. Completion of the course fulfills the Washington State legal qualification requirements for parents who do not otherwise qualify to provide home-based instruction. The course is sponsored by Cascade Bible College.
The instructors have homeschooled children from birth to college entrance and have provided many years of service to the homeschooling community in Washington State, providing annual testing and assessments, teaching classes for homeschooling families and serving on boards in local and state organizations. Plan to come to be informed, inspired, and encouraged about homeschooling your children.
GREAT EXPECTATIONS does not promote one curriculum over another, nor do we recommend one method of teaching over another (natural learning, traditional, etc). We believe that these are personal decisions and that each family must decide what is best for their family.
Our course is very intensive. We pack volumes into our 10-hour seminar to give homeschooling families the most value in the least amount of time, so that they spend as little time away from their families as possible.
** Please bring to the class on Friday evening a copy of Washington State’s Laws Regulating Home-based Instruction (including Appendices 2, 3, and 6). It is available on-line from the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction.
