How do we share the burden?
Our teachers are most often the parents of the students and are all volunteering their time and sharing their gifts with others again allowing the costs to remain low.
You must be willing to teach 1-2 classes and help in other classes to participate in co-op, as well as participate in set-up, clean-up (after last class) and recess monitor duties. We will try to place you in requested area, but cannot guarantee it. Parents are required to stay on campus at all times with children.
Curriculum is not included. Parents are responsible for purchasing any curriculum needed or recommended by the program.
At CFA, we aim to structure our program so that families are working at the same pace, studying the same topics and subjects, sometimes from the same resources. Our Educational Team selects the curriculum to be used in each subject based on the same choosy, discriminating factors that you look for: biblical worldview, affordability, consumable vs. non-consumable, learning styles, age appropriateness, and much, much more.
After enrolling in the program, families are given a list of texts and literature which will be used for each age group for the year. Besides required texts, optional and highly recommended materials may also listed. By sending this list out early enough, parents have plenty of time to either buy or borrow the materials being used.
