Classes for Your Family

ECHO was created to provide activities for homeschoolers with limited opportunities. Therefore, first priority in class placement will be given to returning families whose children are NOT participating in an ALE public school program (this includes CVA, MCP, Three Rivers Home-Link, K-12,etc.) followed by new families not participating in an ALE.  We will then place returning and new families who are participating in an ALE.  

Each Student registers for four class hours. We offer multiple class choices for 5-6 yr olds, 7-9 yr olds, 10-12 yr olds, and 13 yrs and up. Our preschool kids, 3-4 yrs, remain in the same class together for all four periods and do not change classes. If there are special circumstances in which partial enrollment is needed, please e-mail This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with your request. The ECHO Board has the responsibility and reserves the right to determine the registration process for the good of ECHO.

Class sizes are limited. After we have received and processed your paperwork, you will receive an e-mail confirming the classes in which your child has been enrolled. If a first choice class you signed up for is full, we will automatically put your child in their second or third choice during the same period.
