WHAT EXACTLY DO YOU GUYS DO?
The Omaha Homeschool Learning Center provides weekly classes to supplement your home curriculum. We typically offer 80-90 classes per semester with 550 or more kids in attendance throughout the day.
WHEN ARE YOU ABOUT THIS?
We meet on Wednesdays for 12-14 weeks in the fall and “spring.” Usually we start the first week of September and then again the first week of February. Classes are held from 9am to 4pm; kids can take as many or as few as they like.
Registration starts the first week of June and the first week of December.
WHERE DOES THIS ALL TAKE PLACE?
This semester we are located at St. Peter School, 709 S 28th St, Omaha, NE 68105, which is right off the Leavenworth exit of 480 North. The school is just to the west of the church. Parking is located behind the church.
WHAT DO PEOPLE DO WHO AREN’T IN A CLASS?
We have a Mom’s Room with a plethora of babies, toddlers, and mommies (and an occasional dad). It also has coffee, tea, and some toys.
Older kids are free to study or socialize in any spot they can find, although most rooms are occupied so they are often found in groups in the hallways and other nooks.
AND WHAT IS THIS GOING TO SET ME BACK?
Tuition is typically $95 for a semester class; there also usually an additional charge for supply fees or textbooks. Tuition is higher for classes that meet for an extended time.
Volunteers receive discounted tuition, priority registration, and a stipend applied as credit. (More here.)
WHAT ARE YOU GUYS DOING ABOUT COVID?
All individuals who are five (5) and older shall wear a face covering over their mouth and nose while indoors.
Exceptions to wearing a mask include:
–if people can stay at least 6 feet apart from someone who’s not from their family or household, or
–while immediately consuming food or beverages; or
–Individuals who are exercising in an indoor business or indoor space … while the level of exertion makes it difficult to wear a face-covering provided that minimum social distancing of 6 feet is maintained; or
–is providing a speech, lecture or broadcast to an audience and so long as six (6) feet of distancing from other individuals is maintained; or
–cannot otherwise wear a face-covering because of a medical condition, a mental health condition, or a disability that makes it unreasonable for the individual to wear a face covering.
SO WHERE DO I SEE YOUR CLASSES?
We thought you’d never ask: here.
