Falcon Homeschool Academic Program

  • FHAP Mission Statement:

    The Falcon Homeschool Academic Program's mission is to thoughtfully blend a spirit of innovation and time-held tradition to homeschooled students through hybrid exposure in concepts related to math, English, science and history in a nurturing and respectful environment.

     
    The academic program classes serve as the students' curriculum for the school year and are taught in a blended format in which students attend classes at our location from 1.5 - 3 hours per week and work with their parent at home in preparation for the next class meeting. Classes are synchronous in nature and the following expectations are critical for student success:
    • Home assignment accountability
    • Attendance
    • Preparation
    • Participation
    • Parent Involvement
    The following courses are offered to students of the academic program:
    • Math
    • English
    • History (8-12th grades only)
    • Science  (8-12th grades only)
    To assure accurate course determination, interested students within the academic program will be asked to take a preassessment in the areas of math and English. Course placement is made by a combination of preassessment results, parent input and age/maturity. In order for students to participate in FHAP, they must select a course schedule that is comprised of a minimum of 12 points as described below:

    Course Points
    Math
    6
    English
    6
    Science

    History

    At this time, students can only enroll in one course per content area.

    Electives/Clubs

     
    A few noteworthy items:
    • FHAP is located at the Falcon Legacy Campus at 11990 Swingline Road, Peyton, CO  80831
    • Math and English are offered on Tuesday and Thursday, while science and history are offered solely on Thursday.  Given the fact that Themes in History and Themes in Science are delivered once per week in a thematic unit-studies format, parents are encouraged to expand upon their learning while at home (beyond the home assignments) in order to consider these courses as full year studies and assign a credit to the transcript.  It is our belief that this is invaluable time for our students to explore and discover history and science in a collaborative and creative way and our teachers are dedicated to this process.  
    • A 20-minute time period has been designated to coaching on Tuesdays for students to meet with their Leadership Distinction Team.


    • A 50-minute time period has been designated to electives/clubs on Thursdays for students to collaborate with their peers in pursuit of their pre-determined mission and goals.  Elective opportunities will be largely student-led and managed, rotate on a quarterly basis and will be an option for those who have their class work complete.  If any parents have an area of interest in which they would like to make into an elective, please email Jess McAllister for the proposal form.
