    I can't believe I completely forgot about the Excel charter orientation tonight. Can you tell me what the main differences are between Sky Mountain and Excel Charter are? Do they offer the same amount in funds? Is the vendor list the same? Thanks for letting me ask my questions.

      Hi Maria Elena, they offer the same funds as Sky Mountain, but you can move funds from one child to the other. The vendor list is not the same, yet. We will become vendors soon and they are eager to approve vendors that families request. I think the main difference is that Excel sounds like they will be relaxed the way SM was in the beginning. Also, they don't have the high school curriculum requirements that SM has.

      There are many ways to homeschool and using a charter is just one way. And there are many kinds of charters. Excel is one the "new" charters that cater to homeschoolers, but aren't online like CAVA (K12). With Excel, you are assigned a teacher, but parents choose the curriculum. Fortunately, Excel gives each family funds to purchase curriculum, take classes, and/or lessons. Every 20 school days (which works out to about once a month), the family meets with the teacher and hands in samples of the child's work for that month. They only need to turn in one sample from five subject areas. The parent keeps an online log of daily work, but they are very flexible in that if you do two days worth of work on one day, you can separate the activities and enter them on two days. There is plenty of room for new students and they are enrolling families quickly. You can be accepted in just a couple of days as soon as you send in all of your paperwork.

    Wow! This was an amazing event. Thank you to Cindy for putting this all together giving the homeschool information talk. Thanks to Rita, Michelle, and Sandy for coming out from Excel Charter to talk about their school. Also thanks to Victoria for doing the free Scratch Programming demo. Please check out our Fall schedule for gee! as we will have some awesome classes. Also if you signed up with Excel be on the look out for our classes on their vendor list. And of course, thanks to all the children and families because without you none of this would be possible. Peace and Love, George
