The Heritage Academy Homeschool program is open for residents in Maryland and West Virginia, for students in grades K5 - 12th. The program is available in three options and overseen by a certified teacher and prior homeschooling mom.
Homeschool Umbrella: This program is offered to K5 -12th grade students. All instruction and oversight of students is done by parents. A review is conducted 2x/year by the Homeschool Coordinator.
Homeschool Umbrella w/ Hybrid: This program is offered to 6 -12th grade students. Some instruction of subjects is done by a parent but the student comes on to the Heritage Academy campus to take classes. A review is conducted 2x/year by the Homeschool Coordinator.
Homeschool Hybrid Classes: This program is offered to 6 -12th grade students. Students may come onto the HA campus to take classes. Portfolios are reviewed by outside sources and the Homeschool Coordinator is not overseeing the students’ progress.
A homeschool student in grades 6-12 may take up to 4 classes per school year at the Heritage campus attending classes with our full-time students. The following classes are generally open to homeschooled students:
AP English Language
AP English Literature
* Some of the classes above are also available at an Honors level, which require additional work to earn the Honors designation.
Homeschool students are expected to abide by all guidelines for full-time students concerning conduct, appearance, attendance, uniforms, and class rules.
Homeschool students taking classes on campus need to arrive 10 minutes prior to the beginning of class. Students need to be picked up within 10 minutes of the conclusion of the last class he/she is taking unless alternate arrangements have been approved by the office.
If a student takes multiple classes, they need to occur in consecutive order. If there is one period between desired classes, a student will need to report to a study hall. A maximum of one study hall is permitted for students taking either two or three academic classes.
