OliveTree High School Information
Are you ‘hitting the wall’ as you approach the Homeschool High School years?
Do you need help with core subjects like Algebra, Geometry, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Essays, Classic Literature, World Geography, American History, Government, Economics and Foreign Language?
Many of us face the choice of either putting our kids in Public High School or paying for expensive Private School. For many, neither of these are workable options. OliveTree has designed a program that will help you to continue homeschooling through the High School years. The vision is for a ‘hybrid’ school – excellent instruction by passionate teachers at OliveTree coupled with accountability and support at home from parents. With students and teachers working together in the classroom and students and parents working together at home, your student can be successful at OliveTree.
The OliveTree High School Mission
1. Create an academic environment with a Biblical worldview which supplements the parental instruction and oversight that is done in the home.
2. Offer supplemental instruction and projects for high school core classes which are required by Universities.
3. Provide a Christ centered environment where the students can develop interpersonal skills, and use teamwork to achieve academic objectives.
4. Do all of the above in a cost effective manner. The cost should be well below that for a full time private school, and slightly higher than that for a complete core subject instructional package which could be purchased.
The High School ‘Road Map’
To homeschool in the high school years, you need a ‘Road Map’ to see where you are headed.
We have researched entrance requirements for area universities as well as Poudre R-1 graduation requirements. This will show you how many credits you need to earn in high school in order to continue on to college. Each unit represents one full year of study.
