Weekly Enrichment Classes
Grace Home Schoolers, Inc. provides a variety of classes for students K5-12. Students in grades K-6 have an opportunity to participate in the “Creative Learning Days” program and students in grades 6 or 7-12 can participate in the “Enrichment Program.”
Please note that while we use the term “class” we are not a school, but rather provide enrichment for the education being directed by the parent.
Classes meet weekly on Fridays, except the 4th Friday of each month, and holidays, Christmas break, and Good Friday. Different classes are taught each year giving students a variety from which to choose. There is an additional cost to participate in the classes.
