Looking for a way to engage your child with other students, in a traditional school environment?
CHEC Family Academy (CFA) is a large sub-group of CHEC. It consists of families seeking a structured, scholastically focused arena where students meet for classes one day a week. Involvement includes regular commitment, service, and attendance (parent and student) by those participating. The entire group meets on Fridays at a central location in Akron during the academic year. CFA students must be homeschooled as dictated by the CHEC homeschool definition and be members of CHEC. Students participate in academic courses and electives. Parents (must be present—No drop offs) teach and direct the academy in true co-operative format.
CFA has a nursery, preschool, and Kindergarten age programs, held in what we call the Ark. This is for the younger siblings of our Elementary and Jr. /Sr. High students. Payment for CFA membership is made financially and through the services offered by those participating. Involvement requires a strong commitment by families who participate; generally from 5 to 8 hours a week service and many families give more.
Development of the upcoming year’s CFA classes and consideration for new membership begins in late winter/early spring. It is important that those considering membership be involved in the planning. Admission applications are processed in the spring. Usually we have a waiting list in effect by Mid-April.
