The Step-Up Enrichment Program at Saint Vincent College is a program open to all families who are actively home schooling or cyber schooling children in grades PreK - grade 12. Home study students from the surrounding area may choose to participate in as many as three enrichment courses designed and taught by college students who are enrolled in the teacher certification program and supervised by faculty. The courses are held on the campus of Saint Vincent College every Friday afternoon. Each course consists of ten one-hour classes each semester. Each semester brings a new list of course choices in each grade span. Even though each class has a target grade range, these are only guidelines. Each child is unique and the program offers flexibility to meet the needs of the child.
The goals of the STEP-UP Program are to:
1) Offer assistance and support to home-school families in meeting instructional needs to meet requirements for their specific curricular goals.
2) Encourage a collaborative learning experience through group projects with other home-schooled and cyber schooled students in the area.
3) Enrich the learning experience of nontraditional students through a variety of interesting enrichment units taught by college students in the field of education who aspire to be teachers.
