The Enrichment Program is a homeschool co-op that meets on Fridays at a church in west McKinney. We offer a full-year program consisting of a Fall and Spring semester; the enrichment program meets 10 Fridays per semester, with many of the high school courses meeting on extended Fridays. Most classes are taught by MArCH parents. One parent is required to serve every hour their child is present (nursery is available for the youngest in the family). Parents teach, co-teach, assist, prepare lunch, set up, clean up and run literally every aspect of the program. God uses each person’s unique abilities to create an amazing learning environment for homeschool families.
Courses vary each semester and include a multitude of subjects. Courses in math, science, history, computers, language arts and test preparation are offered for various grade levels, from kindergarten through 12th grade. These classes, if selected by a family, generally require students who are middle and high schoolers to do work at home on non-enrichment days. Teachers often offer courses from Apologia, Bob Jones, Thinkwell and IEW. Starting Points is often offered. Many of the courses offered for middle schoolers and high schoolers are credit-type classes.
In addition, fun elective type courses may include PE classes (flag football, gymnastics, table tennis, traditional elementary PE); arts and crafts (painting, beadwork, knitting, drawing); hands-on creative learning on a particular theme (American Girl, Exploring Space, Legos); private music lessons; chess club; career/life prep; psychology/personality studies; discussion groups; and more. A well-established drama program offers a sequence of classes and the opportunity to perform in a play or musical. For more information, visit our class example list by clicking on the link below, but please note that this is just an example of classes, not an official list. Classes vary semester to semester.
In addition, high schoolers can choose to participate in student council, honors society, green cord service program, Collin College Dual Credit and a formal graduation ceremony. Juniors may participate in a “year of service” which culminates in a “year of honor” during the senior year. MArCH also publishes a full-color yearbook each academic year. Many of these activities are open to all MArCH members (even if not participating in enrichment).
