A hybrid homeschool experience for preK - 12

Pairing the benefits of public and private education for students in Elmira, New York and the surrounding region of the Southern Tier.

At our Hybrid Homeschool Center, we pioneer an innovative approach to education, combining the structured learning environment of traditional schools with the personalized, intimate setting of homeschooling.

Our mission is to provide a nurturing, academically challenging environment where students attend on-site classes two days a week, focusing on core subjects led by professional educators. On the alternate days, parents take the helm, implementing a tailored, home-based curriculum to reinforce and supplement the learning process.

We believe in the integration of foundational disciplines with a rich array of enrichment classes, offering a holistic educational experience that embraces creativity, critical thinking, and personal development. By striking a balance between public, private, and homeschool advantages, we aim to foster an environment that is flexible, interactive, and customized to each child’s unique learning style and pace. Our vision is to revolutionize education, cultivating not only scholars, but well-rounded individuals prepared for a lifetime of learning and growth.

Family Enrichment Center - homeschooling tutoring Elmira NY

Learn & Play Space

  • FEC has carefully chosen curriculum agreed upon with the select tutors/class and subject. The purchase of a select textbook/workbook will be required for purchase by parents. The supply list will be provided upon enrollment. The specific curriculum can be discussed at the Student Assessment and personal interview with the Director and at the Open House in August.

  • FEC will provide one-two days of material covered (depending on the enrollment each student chooses,) and will fulfill those days - week over school days required for submission. FEC is co-teaching with you as a parent to teach, assign and grade on the days the students are enrolled. These assignments and days qualify and can be reported. The remaining days are the responsibility of the parent homeschooling to fulfill and report.

  • Yes, the students will be assigned "homework". We call this "Homeschool Work". The "assignment" work will begin in the classroom, to ensure the students have fully grasped the concepts and will be completed at home. The students will return the next class date with their completed Homeschool Work and grade with the class and the tutor as a group.

  • Yes, FEC will provide a completed syllabus of teaching they will complete and the parents will teach the off days from this syllabus from the curriculum purchased. The main teaching will be done at FEC on one of our Core M/W or T/T groups, and you, as a parent, will follow through with the assignments on the off days and fill in with hands-on learning and the personal touches of homeschooling. The FEC tutor will send homeschool work and assignments for their classes to provide academic learning for a Monday - Thursday learning pattern. It is the job and responsibility of each homeschool parent to follow through and check assignment completion before their student arrives for classes. All coursework is graded and expected to be completed. It is the responsibility of the parent and student to work through questions and problems in the assignments without continual contact of their tutor on off days from FEC schedule.
