Due to factors related to COVID-19, we are only offering middle school Friday Group elective classes for homeschool students for the 2020-2021 school year.
Community School offers homeschool students the opportunity to join our full-time students in art, music, drama, technology, and Foreign Language and Cultural Studies classes at the elementary and middle school levels. Homeschool middle school students, the equivalent of 5th through 8th grade, can also join our full-time students for a wide range of elective classes known as Friday Groups. Limited spaces are available for homeschool students, and returning students have priority for registration. Contact the Admissions Director for more information. Learn more about our Homeschool Enrichment Schedule, Tuition & Fees, Guidelines.
