ECCHO PREP High School Classes

ECCHO PREP offers a variety of academic and elective classes for homeschooled students ages 13+ on Fridays in Waxahachie.  While primarily a "drop off" program, there are certain duties that will need to be covered, so parents may be asked to serve in various capacities during the year.  Students enrolled in Prep may not participate in Junior Prep, or Enrichment Classes, however, they may be part of Camp Hoblitzelle during the same school year.

Current class offerings can be found on the Class Registration page.

Our main goals are to help families with the education of their children and provide a place for friendships to form and grow.
