WEST strives to come alongside homeschool students and families in an effort to support the educational journey. Bringing PSEO to our community is one way in which WEST assists.
WEST offers Post Secondary Enrollment Option (PSEO) courses through North Central University (NCU) and Crown College and Bethel University at Church of the Open Door on Mondays and Tuesdays. Students will earn university credit for courses successfully completed through this program while at the same time earning high school credit from homeschool (dual enrollment).
NCU / Crown College / Bethel University instructors teach each NCU / Crown College / Bethel University PSEO course. They have met the educational requirements, been hired by the university, approved by WEST, and are excited to teach your high school junior and senior on the WEST campus!
True to the WEST mission and purpose, PSEO course work is presented with a Christian-Biblical Worldview in a setting that builds community and grows faith.
NCU courses are traditional in-class with instructor with the exception of ASL online. They meet once a week per semester to receive and complete the credit work.
Crown College courses are hybrid that meet once a week per semester in-class with the remainder of coursework received and completed on-line.
Bethel University courses are hybrid that meet once a week per semester in-class with the remainder of coursework received and completed on-line.
