As a home educator, I have all sorts of great ideas of fun and creative ways to help my child learn. But life is full, and often those ideas are challenging to bring about on my own. The Independent Studies Program at MCS is a great partner that comes alongside with group learning experiences for my son, educational resources, and practical and emotional help for me, the parent educator. It makes learning at home not just possible, but well-rounded and academically excellent, even for busy families like ours.
The IS program has been a huge blessing to our family. Our coordinator helps me choose curriculum, fulfill requirements for each grade, answers all of my questions and simply keeps me going. The after school classes challenge my older children and help them organize their time. The Friday classes remind my younger children that learning is fun and they aren't the only people doing this homeschooling thing. Finally, being plugged in to such a quality school as MCS offers many side benefits and gives me great confidence that I am doing my best for my children's future.
Many blessings, Marie
Our family has been a part of the IS. Program for 2 years and we absolutely love it. It is like having the best of both worlds. We can homeschool and our kids can still have friendships with classmates as well as activities, sports and field trips. It's amazing. Our kids also just love MCS, the teachers, administrators and coaches. Thank you for running this high quality program. It has been life changing for my children and our family.
