Many homeschool parents find our high school hybrid program beneficial as their children become young adults. Whether for expertise in certain subject areas or the benefits of a participating in an athletic program, this partnership combines a family’s passion for educating at home with resources from a premier Christian school. It is our privilege to work with homeschool families in partnership as we inspire students for purposeful lives of learning, godliness, and service.
Immanuel Christian High School Homeschool Hybrid program offers unique hybrid options to families who want the best of both worlds: to continue home educating in high school with access to the opportunities a traditional high school offers. In our hybrid program, high school students can take up to four courses per year, participate in Winterm; and earn either an Immanuel Christian High School diploma or a homeschool certificate, depending on your child’s goals.

High school students are invited to enroll in two to four classes of their choice from our entire course list. Because Winterim (January Term) is integral into the culture of our program and in order for homeschool students to gain maximum academic and social benefit from this life-changing opportunity, homeschool students desiring to participate in the Winterim travel options are required to enroll for the entire Winterim (January) term and must enroll in two courses during first and second semester.
Enrollment in a minimum of two individual classes is required for participation in Winterim each year. Winterim will be optional for homeschool hybrid students and will require the Principal’s approval of the request. Charges will vary based on the trip. All students would be expected to participate in all fundraising efforts.
It is our hope that students enrolled through the homeschool hybrid option immerse themselves in ICHS student life. Attendance is encouraged for chapels, advisory groups, community service and lunch, as well as for retreats and all school activities and events. Extra-curricular clubs, fine arts programs and Winterim trips are also open. All hybrid students receive the normal amenities of lockers, lunch privileges, yearbooks, textbooks and attendance on field trips for the classes in which they are enrolled. Hybrid students enrolled in four classes may run for student government offices if desired.
Our athletic conference requires student athletes to be enrolled in two classes to participate.
Hybrid students will be expected to bring their own device and pay a technology fee of $50, or pay a $250/year technology fee to use an ICHS device for the year.
Students must have own transportation and may not remain on campus outside of class times or pre-approved attendance times.
TESTING AND GUIDANCE
Hybrid students may participate in standardized testing including PSATs (9-11) and practice ACTs (11). Our Guidance Counselor will provide college and career planning as they do for all Immanuel Christian High School students. Results of testing are sent to the family and kept in our online academic database, FACTS online. Immanuel Christian High School will not report testing to any public or private agency.
We do our best to arrange hybrid schedules around each family’s needs but it is difficult to ensure a student will be available at specific times or on specific days. Our Guidance Counselor will work to create a schedule that meets your needs to the best of their ability. All hybrid students who have breaks between classes are welcome to study in our media center during free time. Hybrid students are assigned a homeroom in order to be included in class activities but are not required to be present in homeroom unless they have a class adjacent to homeroom.
Homeschool hybrid students will be included in all published materials celebrating the senior class in all graduation activities. Students are encouraged to walk and be announced alongside their classmates are our high school graduation ceremony and will receive a homeschool certificate rather than an Immanuel Christian High School diploma.
