Supplemental Teaching Extention Program (STEP)

Our Mission - STEP partners with actively involved parents, providing them with a Christ-centered, financially appealing, college and career preparatory program to facilitate homeschooling through high school!

We have gathered privately contracted teachers who are proficient in the subjects they teach, to meet with students for inspiring classroom instruction and discussion.

While students study and complete the academically challenging coursework at home, the Supplemental Teaching Extension Program comes alongside parents and existing ELCC classes to equip students to be "salt and light" in whatever career path God leads them.

Please browse through this information and be encouraged that you can continue to homeschool high school, and STEP can help!

Twice per week meetings, student accountability and self-governance are hallmarks of the STEP program.

Students attend ELCC on Thursdays and receive assignments, lessons, and instruction. On Tuesdays, students attend the Supplemental Teaching Extension Program and receive supplemental teaching, more in-depth learning, and accountability. This is a drop-off, 9:00 am- 2:45 pm program during which students will attend 5 classes. These 5 classes are designed to supplement classes already being taken at ELCC.

High School planning is essential for success!

While many parents desire to homeschool through high school it can be very difficult to plan a path through the high school years. STEP meets this challenge by walking with parents through the planning process, developing a roadmap for success, and providing the tools needed to follow that roadmap! STEP further assists the parents of high school students by developing and maintaining student records and transcripts. Transcripts and high school records are uniquely important to the college application process. Keeping student records and transcripts can be one of the most intimidating aspects of homeschooling high school. STEP removes this barrier to help parents fulfill their calling to home educate their children.

Another barrier to homeschooling high school can be intimidation over future career choices, college acceptance, and high school testing. STEP partners with the larger academic community to facilitate college visits, explore career and college options, provide ACT and SAT test prep as well as end-of-year testing (meeting the Ohio requirements for homeschooling). Our mission to facilitate homeschooling high school is accomplished through these partnerships and one on one meetings with parents and students.
