High School, Grades 8-12
At Educational Harbor, we encourage teens to think outside the box. Students are encouraged to participate in local internships within the community. In 2020-2021, we will be holding courses Monday through Thursday from 9:15AM-3:30PM. This allows students the flexibility to take courses outside of Educational Harbor as well as hold a job that they can work on Fridays. They can also pursue independent interests for credit. For example, outdoor activities is a half credit and can be obtained with a variety of independent activities such as fishing, disc golf, and other recreational activities.
Our high school is exposed to Christian apologetics and character development through Bible stories. Our curriculum comes from a Christian worldview. Here is a list of the books we used or will use this year:
Apologia for Sciences (Biology, Chemistry, Anatomy, Marine Biology, Physics)
BJU Press (Earth/Space Science)
Abeka (All math)
Masterbooks (History and Science)
Constitutional Literacy (specifically Government)
PACE (specifically Economics)
Lifepac (specifically Health and Finance)
A variety of authentic literature, both classic and modern
We typically supplement with the following programs:
Crash Course (History / Science) on YouTube
The Great War (specifically WW1) on YouTube
A variety of movies like historical fiction and adaptations of literary works
A variety of board games that model history, economics, and science
Kahoot and Quizzlet
Kutasoftware and IXL (math extensions)
Math U See and Teaching Textbooks (to reteach math concepts if necessary)
Classes will be similar to college in that students will focus on 3 classes in the fall and 3 in the spring. Other outside choices include Sign Language, arts classes from Circle Arts Academy or Palmetto Art Center. Students will need to complete 135 hours of work to obtain credit. This includes assigned work, which can be completed at home or in academic enrichment with tutoring.
Full tuition for this year is $5600. This includes homework help and tutoring as well. All class sizes are capped at 12 students, with most being 8-10 students. This means your student will have access to individualized attention. Students may register with Educational Harbor as a private school, or may be a home school student and take any number of classes a la carte. To register, please e-mail Stacey Mayo at email@example.com
Students at Ed Harbor can also dual enroll at South College of Florida (and we are working on Manatee Technical as well)
Please email to request tuition prices for the 2020-2021 school year.
Students may also participate in the sports teams of their local high school since we are not large enough to have our own.
Some of our students are working toward the Congressional Award! See more information here: http://congressionalaward.org/
