EXCEL ACADEMY is a publicly funded charter school. Parents have flexibility in curriculum and/or classes taught from home or various learning centers. Educational funds per student are $2100 TK-8 and $2,700 9-12. Your family will be paired with one of their highly-qualified, credentialed Educational Specialists. These specialists support parents and students on their homeschool journey as they work through the program. Parents and students will meet with their specialist every 20 days to turn in student work samples and to gain support if needed. Families may participate in monthly field trips and park days throughout the school year. Contact information is:
firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
The above charter school services Orange County, California, but there are many others out there servicing other counties and states.
Excel has a list of prescreened vendors you can use for lessons and such, and tutors can sign up to be a vendor to work with your student if needed. The money provided would be very helpful in deterring the cost of specialty classes and extra help. For those of you looking to homeschool your children, this may be a program to consider. I spoke with a lady with 4 children who uses this program, and she uses her funding for specialty art classes, science classes and extra tutoring for her children.
The vendors that are on Excel lists, have all been fingerprinted and background checked. If for example you use a tutor for extra help, the tutor will submit a PO or written bill for the services and it will be paid within the next thirty days directly to the vendor.
If any of you out there have a homeschooling
program that you love, please contact me so that I can share the information. I have had about 4 people ask me about homeschooling in the last week, as some parents feel that the public school system is not for their children and want to find a great homeschooling program for them.
I can be emailed at email@example.com if you want to contact me or called at 714 609-6895. I can also receive a message on my website mrspattstutoring.net. Let's all work together on this please. I will be writing future blogs on HELP WITH HOMESCHOOLING IDEAS! I would love input from all of you!
