These are groups put together for students and families by CHEC members. Generally, the common factor is that they are groups that meet on a reoccurring basis. These groups may meet all year long or for just a month. They may be a class, a club, a sports, etc. Most groups will meet during the academic year, although some groups come up in the summer. The list below is not inclusive of all we may offer. Some, we may not offer every year; others will be added as the year progresses. Interest, leaders, location, and cost all play a factor.
Mini Classes and Non CFA Classes may be taught for any duration of the year, during the week, for as many weeks as the group decides is needed or an outside force dictates. These can be anything from a 20 week art class, to a short 4 week science unit, to a semester Bible study, to a quarter-long study on medieval literature, to fishing, sewing, or cooking classes of varying lengths—the possibilities are limitless.
