Homeschool hybrids & Cottage Schools
Homeschool hybrids and cottage schools are a mix between homeschooling and private school. The hybrid homeschool co-ops usually require students to attend class from 8:30 to 3:30 two or three days a week. The hybrid school teaches concepts and sends assignment sheets home for reinforcement on each subject. The cost of a program like this is usually less than half of a private school. In addition to tuition, parents are also required to buy uniforms and books.

"The mission of Veritas Christian Academy is ministry through education. We aim to partner with Christian parents to provide a classical education founded upon a Biblical worldview. The University Model of education combines the best aspects of private and home schooling. Successful students are self-starters. Many students who have not been prepared for university life and studies struggle with the transition from high school to college. A University Model changes all that. Students begin even from a young age to practice the self-discipline, character, drive, and motivation to complete studies at home, only attending class two days a week. We aim to launch children on a lifelong pursuit of knowledge, wisdom, and understanding in their purposeful and passionate service of Jesus Christ, for the glory of God."
