CEA parents are dedicated Christian parents who feel a “calling” to home education. They desire to remain highly involved in the day-to-day education of their children, and they are willing to make the sacrifices necessary to make this program work for their children.
Due to the time demands upon CEA parents, the Board attempts to make sure all families accepted into the program understand the time commitment required. Our desire is to help ensure that each child can succeed at CEA, and this is only possible for those families where the parents can give significant time and energy to support the learning opportunities provided. One parent must commit to being home with his/her student when the child is not in class at CEA in order to provide needed assistance and support.
At CEA our teachers work with home school parents to provide children with a solid academic foundation within a wholesome learning environment. The teacher will provide classroom instruction, make assignments, define appropriate evaluation tools, and keep permanent records. However, parents and their children must understand that parents remain “teachers,” too. Parents provide needed support at home by quizzing their child prior to tests, helping with new concepts, making sure work is done on time, grading non-subjective work as directed, etc. And if parents believe their student needs additional assignments beyond the teacher’s requirements, they are welcome to assign them.
Parents also provide support to the program as a whole by serving in various volunteer positions.
Each CEA family is required to sign up for one volunteer position, per child enrolled. Each of these positions will take an average of 4 - 6 hours of time per month. Sign-ups for volunteer positions are circulated prior to each school term. Parents are also expected to sign up for summer work sessions prior to the beginning of classes. By volunteering time, energy, and talents, parents help CEA operate smoothly and efficiently.
