Birchwood’s charter school, said Ahlberg, merges the best of home-schooling and public education. Most of the time the students are home-taught using ABEKA curriculum. They go to the classroom for scheduled activities, lessons in the classroom, and tutoring.
Even though the students in the new charter school are mostly home-schooled, because they are using district-purchased curriculum and participate in classroom activity, they are registered students and are able to participate in all available sports and extra-curriculum activities.
