About Home School Connection (HSC)
HSC is an interdenominational Christian homeschool co-operative (co-op) that offers hundreds of classes taught by both co-op members and tuition teachers. Our members include roughly 100 families, with 100 high school students. HSC does not provide transcripts or have the capability to rank students, as HSC students frequently also take classes in a variety of other settings, including home, colleges and other learning institutions.
Many of our teachers have terminal and advanced degrees and significant professional experience in their fields. We encourage HSC teachers to cover subjects and content for which they have a passion, rather than simply fulfilling a perceived need. Teachers have full freedom - and often take advantage of it - to teach what they love, rather than teaching to a test. The result that we observe, year after year, is students infected with a love and capability for learning.
HSC high school students attend classes two days per week in a lecture or lecture/lab format similar to a college schedule. Students manage 5-10 hours of homework per academic class at home each week. HSC offers a four-year cycle of science, history, and literature subjects. In terms of workload, our honors classes are similar to typical AP classes. HSC students have the opportunity to participate in small specialized classes such as high-level robotics, as well as large group experiences with 50+ students in classes such as musical drama.
HSC students have successfully attended a wide variety of colleges and universities, including: University of Michigan -- Ann Arbor, University of Notre Dame, Johns Hopkins University, Hillsdale College, University of Dallas, Michigan Technological University, Saint Mary’s College (Notre Dame, IN), Benedictine College, Grand Valley State University, Kettering University, Madonna University, Eastern Michigan University, Ave Maria University, and Spring Arbor University.
