I frequently hear lots of questions about charter schools. It is a wonderful solution for many families who can’t financially afford to do much outside of their homes, but would love their children to engage in enriching activities.
As you know from my previous article about charter schools, there are lots of possible choices available for Santa Clarita families. One of our newer home study programs for homeschoolers in Santa Clarita is the Albert Einstein Academy program.
If you’ve ever wondered how charter schools work and specifically the Albert Einstein Academy Home Study, then I wanted to let you know that there will be an information meeting this Wednesday night at 6pm. The meeting will be held in the MPR room at the local Middle/High School facility at
28141 Kelly Johnson Pkwy, Santa Clarita, CA 91355.
The homeschool director, Kristy Robinson, all the home study facilitators, and Eddie Nathan, Director of School Services, will be present to explain the program in more detail and talk about the upcoming school year. There will also be a time for questions and answers. The meeting is for new and returning families as well as those who are just possibly interested.
Charter schools are public schools where a credentialed teacher acts as an educational facilitator, aiding the parents in their home study efforts. Albert Einstein does this by providing $1,000 per student per semester in instructional funds so parents can take enrichment courses or purchase curriculum or other educational materials. Funds could be spent at several approved vendors, such as classes at Learn Beyond The Book, EMH Sports, or Canyon Theater Guild, or materials from Amazon, Rainbow Resource Catalog, or Education Station and tons of other approved vendors. The school’s home study program also provide some core classes at no or low cost. The facilitator also meets with parents and students every 20 school days to collect learning records and work samples and for advice on keeping everything on track, if needed.
We hope to see you all at the meeting on Wednesday evening!
