Kroeker Homeschool Academy teaches many exciting classical Junior High and High School subjects including Latin, literature, writing, government/economics, American and world history, logic, speech and a wide variety of exciting musical options. The Kroekers use a variety of learning methods to allow students to gain maximum experience with minimum difficulty. Along the way, students will learn notetaking, diagramming, analysis, paper writing, working with groups, public speaking, and a host of other vital skills. The music classes teach proficiency on the instrument plus opportunity to work with other musicians! In KHA classes, real learning takes place. The atmosphere of the home-based classroom is relaxed and enjoyable, so that students are confident while learning traditionally difficult subjects.
And don't worry, your student will be doing the big stuff, too! Throughout the class year, students will write a variety of papers, and they will be tested according to the subject they are learning. These include everything from oral quizzes to spelling tests to the National Latin Exam.
The expanding music program offers instruction on violin, viola, cello, bass and guitar from beginning through advanced students. There are opportunities to perform through the Intermediate Strings and Advanced Strings groups, as well as technical instruction in the new String Technique class.
Of course, one of the main focuses at the academy is reading. Students will read works of literature that have been treasured for ages, which will benefit them for the rest of their lives. Writing is also emphasized in a wide variety of ways in all subjects from English to Economics and Logic to Speech.
Classes meet one day per week, with homework sheets given to direct work during the other weekdays. Kroeker Homeschool Academy meets for 34 weeks, from Labor Day through Memorial Day. Classes begin fall 2020, so call or e-mail to receive your registration forms for KHA's eighteenth year!
