We look forward to enjoying your students' experiences!
COMMUNITY CONNECTION OPPORTUNITIES
This year we plan to offer more field trips, events, and free clubs to students, so they have opportunities to connect with other students. Please note, to open our Community Connection links you must have an active Gmail account. Select "Read More" to create your OWN Gmail account.
Creating a homeschool environment conducive to learning at home is invaluable. We realize that square footage is at a premium, since some households have multiple people requiring space. From children being homeschooled to parents who may be working from home to the many other uses our homes provide, we still think it best to create a small space, at minimum, for your student to use. A place where students have access to a table or desk and a place to store curriculum, notebooks, supplies, etc. It limits distractions for your students. It will also assist your student with concentrating on their assignments and establish order, thus helping with developing their organizational skills.
Here is the information for ordering SHABACH! uniform shirts. All students should have 1-2 shirts for attending onsite classes, events, clubs, chapel, field trips, etc. Jeans with no holes are acceptable bottoms.

Middle & High School Pre-Assessment
English, math and writing assessments will be given on September 1st at 2-4pm onsite at 3600 Brightseat Road, Landover, MD. Please sign up using the Assessment Form link, if your student is enrolled in our program in middle or high school and is NOT concurrently enrolled at community college. It’s required. Your student should wear a mask. If you are not available to attend use the “unavailable to attend” form by Friday, August 26, 2022.
Please always send tuition questions to email@example.com and copy firstname.lastname@example.org. ALL other emails, documents, etc. should always go to email@example.com.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: Students observed struggling with the onsite course content after 3 weeks, will be advised to hire a private tutor for their student moving forward. We do not want to hinder the success of any student, so, you also may be asked to withdraw your student from the class to pursue a more individualized plan. Parents will be notified via email and/or a phone call by the teacher.
