Dear Homeschooling Parents,
Thank you for inquiring about the EMMA Resource Class Program for our 2023-2024 school year. Our classes are held in southern Greensboro. We are continuing our 28th year of mentoring, and we welcome you to join us.
We desire that our program be an affordable, quality resource that enhances each family’s homeschooling experience. We recognize the parents as being solely responsible for overseeing their children’s education. While the classes can provide a framework for enrichment, the parent remains responsible for meeting the requirements of the North Carolina Division of Non-Public Education.
Our year for EMMA consists of two semesters – fall and spring—in a traditional yearlong schedule. Classes are designed to be two semesters long (some exceptions, noted “sem”) with separate registration and payment for each semester. Students attending classes in the fall semester are guaranteed slots in the same classes for the spring semester if registered by the returning family deadline.
EMMA meets on Tuesdays and Fridays, and offers elementary, middle school (MS), and high school (HS) enrichment classes—both academic and elective. Most classes are one hour long, but some classes meet for a longer period and/or twice a week. These details are noted in the registration documents. Every class has a minimum and maximum number of students set by the mentor and overseen by the leadership team. If a class fills, we will maintain a waiting list and update your status periodically.
Our classes are designed to be helpful and convenient to homeschool families at a very reasonable price. We are, therefore, dependent upon your help. Each family will contribute approximately four hours of time, referred to as work duties, each semester. The parental volunteer time ensures that there is adequate monitoring of the campus, study halls, and lunch period, and that there is help with cleaning and returning the facility to the Chapel setup.
Since we are not a school, we do not offer counseling, after-school care, learning labs, official transcripts, standardized testing, graduation ceremonies, special education resources, etc. As the homeschooling entity registered with the state, you are required to provide or arrange for these services should your children require them.
We ask that you only enroll students who are respectful, well-behaved, and able to follow the EMMA guidelines. We will not hesitate to uphold the integrity of our program by dismissing students and/or parents who cannot comply. Our staff will not spend copious amounts of time dealing with these or any other issues, especially during non-EMMA days. Please consider these matters seriously before enrolling your student. In the unusual event that you or your student cannot cooperate with our policies, and therefore must be suspended or expelled from the program, no refunds will be given. EMMA’s handbook is located on our website, and we ask you to carefully read it with your student to make sure you and your student are willing to comply with our policies.
If you have questions about any aspect of our program, please contact us. We’ll be happy to assist you.
