Falcon Homeschool Enrichment Program

  • The Falcon Homeschool Enrichment Programs mission is to provide resources and academically engaging, friendship-building opportunities to homeschooled students in a nurturing and respectful environment. 
     
    Falcon Homeschool Enrichment Program classes are organized so students attend one day a week (Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday) from 8:30 a.m. to 3:15 p.m., and are placed in one of our four classrooms.
    1. Kindergarten and first grade
    2. Second and third grades
    3. Fourth and fifth grades
    4. Sixth and seventh grades
    The focus of Enrichment Program classes throughout the day is largely on thematic lessons in social studies and science in which students participate in hands-on and cooperative activities that emphasize problem-solving and critical thinking.

    Please note: With our limited time for instruction with children, we do not claim to offer an entire year's worth of social studies and science - but instead provide our topics in advance so that families have the option of correlating what they are learning at home to the experiences they will be having while at FHP.
