WACHE School is a ministry within the WACHE organization, designed to provide a learning environment in which WACHE children come together one day a week to take classes to enhance their home education. WACHE School is not meant to take the place of the basic education that they should be receiving at home by the parent. WACHE School is not a drop-off program, except for those high school students participating in the IMPACT high school drop off program. WACHE School classes are taught by parents of WACHE children participating in WACHE School. These teachers volunteer their time, talents, and wisdom. At times, when we do not have parent teachers available, we will hire outside teachers so that popular classes can still be offered.
- WACHE School is a structured learning environment with social aspects. When choosing to participate in WACHE School, the participant is accepting the structured style of learning for the number of hours chosen to participate. All children are expected to fully participate in the classes in which they are enrolled. There are no classes offered where participation is optional. Some of the classes require homework to be turned in the following week, and other classes cover all the material during the class time.
- It is the goal of WACHE School to offer core classes every semester. If your child is signed up for one of the core classes available, they might be required to do additional school work outside of class, there might be papers to write, homework to do, tests to study for and projects to complete. This class will conclude with a grade given that can be used for transcripts. Students taking core classes will be expected to take the class seriously and meet required expectations or they may be asked to drop it. A variety of enrichment classes will also be offered each semester. Enrichment offerings may or may not change from semester to semester depending on interest as well as volunteer willingness.
Fall 2021 Co-op Classes are now full/closed
