OH2 isn't really close to where we live, but after two years in the program, I know it's worth the drive to have this excellent instruction and support.
My kids' confidence and test scores have both gone way up. We would travel to the moon for this!

Questions and Answers
Q: What in the world is a HYBRID school?
A: It is a combination of learning at home and learning in a group setting with classmates and specially trained learning coaches.
Students work on assignments at home or in study groups on Mondays and Wednesdays, then come in for group experience and academic support on Tuesdays and Thursdays. (Or think: The best "home-school" experience ever!)
Q: Exactly how does this work? How is it funded?
A: We are a private, tuition based, program specifically developed to support families in their education journeys.
Q: Is there an online portion students have to do for their classes?
A: There is NO online portion required in our program. All classes may be done off-lie through quality books and materials provided.
Q: Do students have to take standardized state tests?
A: We will not be offering to our students. We will, however, assist students and families in preparing for and taking college entrance exams.
Q: Are there any costs or fees that students will be responsible for?
A: Yes. Aside from tuition, there is a $50 registration fee for each student (to cover administrative registration costs), and a $20 per book refundable deposit. (There is NO COST or OBLIGATION to fill out the initial registration.)
Other costs may include:
* Pencils/pens, notebooks, calculator, math compass/protractor, etc.
* End of year yearbook
* Individual school photos
* Option: chrome book or computer for writing papers and/or keeping organized.
Q: What electives are available for my students?
A: Onsite electives for the coming school year are still being determined based on interest and need.
Q: What would a typical week look like?
A: On Mondays and Wednesdays, students work at home, under the supervision of their co-teacher, and using the instructions and material provided the week before, including answer keys if applicable for checking work. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, student are dropped off at (or drive themselves to) the site (address below) for learning experiences led by on-site teachers. The day starts at 10:00am and ends at 2:30pm. Optional elective activites (at no extra cost) will be held from 2:30 to 3.30pm. Fridays are reserved to spend in any way you like, ie: field trips, or other homeschool groups, getting ahead on work, catching up, etc.
Q: Will my student get to graduate?
A: Yes! If they have met the requirements they will attend a graduation ceremony and receive a high school diploma.
Q: What about extra-curricular activities like dances, field days,and/or field trips?
A: Of Course! We are free and happy to take any suggestions for all student activities. We may even join with other hybrid schools or home-school groups to make a nice big group, if we wish.
