Christian classes set up for home-schoolers, The News-Press, Fort Myers, Florida An educational concept aimed at home-school families will make its south Fort Myers debut when the new school year begins this fall.
The Southwest Florida Christian Community School will bring together families who home-school their children to meet three days a week for group classes led by qualified teachers, said Debbi Coe, the school’s founder and administrator.
Coe, of south Fort Myers, said the school will offer a full academic slate consisting of all major subjects such as math, science, history, Spanish and Latin, language arts, logic and the Bible.
She said tuition for pre-K through eighth grade is $3,000 and for high school, $3,400. Registration for Pre-K to eighth grades is $200 and for high school, it is $275. Parents must pay the cost of texts and other educational materials, she added.
This is a private school that charges tuition. The clients could be anyone who desires a private school, not specifically ‘homeschoolers,’ which isn’t to say that the school won’t be useful for families whose children were homeschooled before becoming private school students.
Parents should use whichever kind of education best suits their children, but businesses riding on the coattails of homeschooling don’t ‘add to homeschooling,’ they change it into something else. Whether this is a good thing is up to the discretion of the families enrolling their children in the school.
