For the 2019/2020 school year, EPIC Academy will offer classes for homeschooled children in grades K-12th. Classes will be split into section as follows:
Kindergarten/1st grade (K/1)
2nd-3rd grades (Lower Elementary = LEL)
2nd-5th combined classes (Elementary = EL)
4th-5th grades (Upper Elementary = UEL)
6th-8th grades (Middle School Classes = MS)
Middle School/High School Combined Classes (MS/HS)
9th-12th grades (High School = HS)
In order to keep class sizes manageable, and to ensure the best child to teacher ratio, EPIC will be capping the classes at 18 children/class for students in the K/1, LEL, UEL, & MS sections, and 15 children/class for students in the HS sections. Students will be placed on the class lists on a first-come, first-served basis. Once classes reach full capacity, all additional students will be placed on a waiting list. We will need a minimum of 8 students registered for a class to keep it open as an option.
Students can sign up either for a whole day of classes, or can pick and choose which classes work best. Pricing is as follows:
Kindergarten-1st Grade will be $750/child for the entire year. Gym class is included in this cost.
Elementary classes will be either $875/child for the whole-day option OR $175/child per class.
Middle School and High School classes will be $1,050/child for the whole-day option OR $275/child per class (excluding Chemistry, which will be $350 because it is a two-hour class that includes a lab).
IMPORTANT THINGS TO NOTE:
Books and school supplies are NOT included in this cost, and must be purchased separately. Tuition will be due 2X per year, on September 9 and January 13, and will be paid to EPIC Academy.
In addition to class fees, a $50 per child registration fee will be due upon registering your child(ren).
We must have 8 students/class minimum by June 1, 2019 in order for these classes to remain open.
We will contact you by June 1, 2019 if we need to close your child's class due to low numbers.
Kindergarten and 1st Grade
EPIC is proud to offer classes even for the littlest of homeschoolers!
Our Kindergarten and 1st Grade Enrichment class is a theme-based class specially formatted to meet the needs of our youngest learners. We provide various hands-on and interactive learning experiences to build important skills and we cover important content through the use of unit studies.
2nd and 3rd Grades
We offer several classes at the Lower Elementary level: Art, American Sign Language, Bible, Language Arts, Gym, Music/Drama, Odyssey of the Mind, Spanish, and Science.
Our goal at this age level is to differentiate our instruction to meet the needs of a wide range of learners. We realize that students at this age may still be mastering handwriting, fine motor skills, and reading and comprehension. Because of this, we offer a range of choices for homework in each class to challenge your child exactly where they're at.
We will be offering placement testing at the end of the summer to help you determine if this level is the best choice for your child.
4th and 5th Grades
We offer several classes at the Upper Elementary level: Art, American Sign Language, Bible, Language Arts, Gym, Music/Drama, Odyssey of the Mind, Spanish, and Science.
We do our best to differentiate instruction at this level as well, offering a range of choices for homework in each class to challenge your child exactly where they're at.
Students will participate in several hands-on activities, projects, and presentations throughout the year!
Our Middle School students (6th-8th) have the opportunity to take several different classes: Art, American Sign Language 1, Intro to American Sign Language, Spanish 1, Life Science, Odyssey of the Mind, Technology, and Writing.
We realize that there can be a wide range of ability levels across these grade levels. Because of this, we do our best to offer a variety of homework choices to meet the needs of each student. Students will participate in several hands-on activities, projects, and presentations throughout the year!
As EPIC continues to grow, we're continuing to add to our High School level class offerings. This coming year we hope to offer: Art, American Sign Language 1 & 2, Biology, Chemistry, Christian Apologetics, Odyssey of the Mind, Physical Education/Health, Spanish 1, Technology - Film Studies and Production, and Writing/Speech.
Our High School level classes are geared to prepare our high school students for college.
