Welcome to Family Tree Learning Center a unique independent study/ home school program that offers the opportunity for families to form a partnership between teachers and parents for the education of their children. This Hemet Unified School District program provides support for parents/families who wish to instruct their children at home. It is designed for families who, for a variety of reasons, prefer to meet the educational needs of their children outside of the traditional, comprehensive school setting.
Family Tree Learning Center is a voluntary educational option available to students from kindergarten through eighth grade. Families can choose such options as one-on-on supervising teacher appointments, as well as small group workshops. The program provides a standards-based educational experience while responding to the student’s specific educational needs, interests, aptitudes and abilities. As a recognized alternative for regular classroom instruction, this home school independent study program provides a quality academic program equal or superior to the quality of a classroom based instructional program.
The parent and student meet once a week with a certificated teacher who assists the family to ensure that the instruction being provided complies with state standards, yet meets the individual needs of the particular student and family focus. When a student is enrolled in Family Tree Learning Center, the home educator is provided with standards based textbooks, workbooks, and other curricular materials necessary for home education. A credentialed teacher provides assignments and assessments, working with the parent weekly to customize a learning experience appropriate for each student. Project based learning is a focus of the home school program with opportunities to engage in community based educational activities. Workshops on effective techniques to teach writing, mathematics, and reading are available as a support to the home educator. Weekly tutorial sessions are scheduled to provide additional support for students. On-line resources are easily accessible.
Students residing in Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego counties are welcome to enroll in the Family Tree Learning Center Home School program. We are located in the City of Hemet on the Dartmouth Annex directly south of Dartmouth Middle School, and share the campus with Helen Hunt Jackson High School and College Prep High School. These two programs are also part of the Ed. Options program offered by the Hemet Unified School District.
