Welcome to The Network!
THE NETWORK'S 20TH YEAR: 2017-2018
The Network is a Christian organization for families who are actively engaged in the home schooling process. Our classes are a supplement, not a replacement for home education. We meet on Mondays at Grace Church (4200 E 25th Street, Des Moines, IA). Students receive one and a half hours of instruction per week for each class in which they are enrolled. During the rest of the week, students complete homework assignments, work on projects, read course material, and study for upcoming quizzes and tests. Parents help students organize their schedule for adequate studying, review assignments before they are turned in, and maintain good communication with teachers. Parents also have opportunities to assist the Network community in various capacities.
