Overview

Homeschool Partnership Program

The girls are absolutely delighted with their class. We have been able to do all classes well at home and co-op, with the exception of Math. Our family (really) needed your math classes. We are forever grateful to your school."   -  MCS Homeschool Parent

Expectations

Any student who is a participant in the MCS Homeschool Partnership Program must adhere to the MCS Handbook and discipline policy.  Any student who is taking multiple courses and has a period or more between classes will be scheduled into a study hall while waiting for the next class or must be picked up by the parent. All students must be supervised while on the MCS campus. MCS Homeschool Partnership students will wear the approved school uniform and apparel.

Courses Available

Priority scheduling is given to full-time students, and seat availability will determine what courses are available to students in the Homeschool Partnership Program. Students may request enrollment in any course currently being taught at MCS. For a list of all class offerings, go to mcseaglesoh.org to see the MCS Course Description Guide. 

Extra-Curricular Participation

Any student who wishes to participate in athletics or fine arts must be enrolled in a minimum of two classes, one of which must be a core class. A core class is defined as any class that may be categorized in one of the following areas of study: Bible, History, Science, Math, English or Foreign Language. In order to participate in athletic or after school events on any given day, a student must be in attendance that day for their scheduled class periods.

Athletics

Madison Christian School is a proud member of the Ohio High School Athletic Association (OHSAA) in the Central District. The High School and Jr. High teams compete in the Mid-Ohio Christian Athletic League (MOCAL). In addition to the minimum course requirements, all Homeschool Partnership students must meet the OHSAA and MCS eligibility requirements.

College Credit Plus

College Credit Plus is a government funded program allowing students in grades 7-12 to earn both college credit and high school credit through college coursework. A College Credit Plus informational meeting is held at MCS each March to explain the program and answer questions.  All students must notify school administrators by April 1st of each year of their intent to participate and then apply to the university of their choice.

Ohio has never offered homeschool students a better start on a college education. It is our experience that funding for this program has been easier to attain as an independent homeschooler than by trying to receive funding through MCS. 

Therefore, if interested, we recommend you pursue this opportunity directly by going to the College Credit Plus Program page on the Ohio Department of Education website at http://education.ohio.gov/Topics/School-Choice/College-Credit-Plus

Food Service

Homeschool Partnership Students are encouraged to pack a sack lunch if your classes occur before and after our lunch periods.  MCS currently does not offer a hot lunch program, so all students carry a brown-bag lunch.  There are limited snacks and drinks available for purchase during lunch period.
