Wilmington Christian School
is on the leading edge of
innovative education through our
Homeschool Partnership Program
and our Online Academy

Given the reality of the “Gutenberg to Google Revolution,” rigid
formats and structures for learning do not always work for today’s
students. WCS’s approach to education is nimble enough to offer
customized learning options and yet stable enough to have earned the
trust of dozens of families who leverage our Homeschool Partnership
Program and Online Academy to meet their unique needs

Wilmington Christian School offers classes for
homeschool students from grades 6-12, with flexible
options to meet the needs of homeschooling families. In
addition to being able to take a maximum of three seated
classes, homeschool students can take an unlimited num-
ber of online courses through WCS’s Online Academy

Homeschool Partnership Guidelines
Students may take a maximum of three credits/courses (whichever is greater)
with WCS under the program; to graduate with a WCS diploma there must
be a minimum of eight WCS credits during high school as well as the
completion of 40 service hours. To receive a diploma, homeschool students
operate under the WCS ID number

According to Delaware Independent Athletic Association (DIAA)
requirements, students must be enrolled in a course during the season(s) in
which they participate. Students playing a sport must be fulltime (5 courses
between WCS and homeschool) during any semester they are playing a sport
and must be enrolled in a minimum of two on-campus courses per year (one
of which must be a core course)

Students taking multiple classes with WCS may have a gap between class
periods. Students may attend a maximum of two study halls at WCS per day

Transportation must be arranged so that students arrive at the beginning of
the first class period and picked up at the conclusion of their last class
period/study hall. Students must follow sign in/sign out procedures

Transferring students are on a trial for one marking period and may continue
with the program if they are maintaining a 2.0 or higher GPA and following
the standards in the student code of conduct

Upon acceptance into the WCS Homeschool program, parents/guardians
must provide a transcript at the conclusion of each semester complete with
courses, credits, and grades for classes taken outside of WCS. Families will be
required to complete a scope and sequence for classes taken outside of WCS,
according to WCS specifications. (WCS to provide template.)
Families will be required to meet annually with the homeschool guidance
counselor to determine eligibility for program and ensure graduation
requirements are being met

Tuition and fees must be paid directly to WCS in one or two installments:
(1) Balance in full prior to the start of school or (2) Two payments in equal
installments paid before September 1st and January 15th. Part-time students
are not eligible for the Tuition Assistance Program or other school-sponsored
