Homeschool Enrichment Centers (HEC) is a learning center. We are not a school. Think of HEC as a tutoring center or rec center that offers classes. We offer full core classes, enrichment & elective classes for preschool through High School. Since we are not a school, we do not have records or keep grades. You, the parent, are the teacher and should be keeping grades OR if you are with a independent study charter, then your charter. We are here to help you in your homeschool journey to supplement classes. You can take as little or as many classes as you choose. You can take one or you can take 15, it is up to you.
And YES, you can homeschool High School through HEC and it can count as credit to graduate! 
Please see below for many questions you may have.

Children going to school

Is HEC a school?

No Because we are not registered with the state of CA as a school, and you do not need to stay on campus full days, 5 days a week, we are not a school. Therefore students can attend whether you are an independent homeschool, with a psp or with a charter. Any child is welcome!

Art Class

What are we?

We are a learning center offering both electives & core subject classes for preschool through High School. We operate like a university, but for kids, where you can choose as little or as many classes as you wish.

How does it work?

If you are homeschooling, it is up to you, as the parent & teacher, to choose how you want to school. Whether you do all core subjects at home & only take electives & fun classes at HEC or you want your child to take all core subject classes at HEC or you want to do a combination of both, it is up to you.

Assembly of books

Will I have to supplement any core subjects at home if my child is taking all core subjects?

No, for any core subjects, your child will be sent home with school work to do at home on their days they are not at HEC. This includes partial core classes such as writing classes.

Art Class

Do I have to stay on campus?

Yes & no. If your child is only in 1-2 classes or has gaps in between classes, you are required to stay on campus with your child.

Backyard entertainment

Is there a place for me to stay on campus or for my younger sibling to play?

Yes, we have tables all round the campus & a multi-use room for anybody to sit. We also have an enclosed playground for our kids and for younger siblings to play.

Working on Laptop

Where do I register for classes?

In the drop down options on the homepage, go to "Classes"; then go to Fall 2022 Classes. There you will find all of our classes for both campuses. You can filter by subject, day or time.

Computers

Where do I register for the Drop-Off program?

The Drop-Off programs are located in the same place as the classes are. You would add them to your cart like you do with your classes. You will be charged for the drop-off options at the time you checkout.

Dollar Notes

Why do you charge for the Drop-Off option?

Because each class is paid separately to each teacher/vendor, the Drop-Off option is paid directly to HEC to pay for our liability & to the campus aides for the supervision.

Color Bombs

Why can't I just drop off with gaps for my child to study or hangout?

We are not a daycare & do not offer childcare services. We are a learning center & our focus is on educational classes; not childcare. We do offer an extended childcare for working parents before 9:00am after 3:00pm at an additional cost. 

Calculator

How come at checkout their is a "$0" balance? 

There is a $0 balance for classes because the fees for classes go directly to each instructor or vendor. There is no way for us to collect for all 30 of our instructors through our website.

First Time Membership

Why is there a membership?

The membership is a benefit that allows you to register for classes, field trips & take part of our fun activities throughout the year. This fee pays for our insurance, campus needs, activities & other costs.

Credit Card Purchase

It looks like I was charged $60 for a class.

That $60 is not a charge for class, but our annual membership fee. Once you add a class to your cart, it attaches the membership fee as a registration.

How long is the membership good for?

The $60 membership is good for the school year from August through August. The membership is also good at both campuses.

Holding Bills

How do I pay for my classes if you don't charge me for them at checkout?

In each class description, it gives the method of payment that each instructor/vendor accepts, such as Venmo, Paypal. Check or Zelle.

If you are using Charter Funds

Upon registration, All classes REQUIRE a $50 non-refundable registration fee paid directly to each instructor/vendor for each class, in order to save your spot in the class. If your charter funds have not dropped yet, you have 2 options:

1) Register now & pay the $50 non-refundable registration fee per class, out of pocket. This $50 goes towards the class fee. *Check with your charter if this is allowed

2) Register later, when your charter funds drop to pay both the vendor's registration & the class fee.
