CMS eLearning Academy 2017-2018 Discussion from THSG Homeschool Leaders Forum

There has been a discussion in The Homeschool Gossip's Homeschool Leaders Forum
regarding a link from the CMS eLearning Academy shared by member Alicia M.  (Thank you Alicia for sharing!!)

Here is the text:
"CMS School Web Sites
eLearning Academy
Welcome Homeschoolers!

We are pleased to offer our high school eLearning courses to home-schooled students. ​

Home-schooling is a significant investment of your family's time and money.  CMS wants to make this easier for you by providing high quality online courses for you and​ access to highly qualified teachers.

In addition, eligible students have the option to participate in sports and clubs at their CMS home school.

How it works:​

  • Students must be in grades 9-12 living in Mecklenburg County.​
  • Home school students must enroll in at least two online courses per semester (4 per year) and make satisfactory progress throughout the semester.
  • Students must enroll in CMS, while also maintaining their homeschool enrollment. ​
  • Courses can supplement home school curriculum.
  • Students will have access to highly qualified certified teachers online, by phone, and in person by appointment.
  • Students who take at least 3 courses are eligible to participate in sports teams at their CMS home high school.
  • Students can choose whether to graduate from the eLearning Academy or from their home school.​ ​
The members have been discussing this option and opinions vary.

Member Tiffany L. contacted the Director of the NC DNPE with a specific question, and Diane E. Allen responded. (Thank you Tiffany L. for sharing!!!)

Here is Diane E Allen's, Director of the DPNE, response:


"Our advisement is that parents pay careful attention to the requirements and understand fully the benefits and consequences of their actions. "


The Homeschool Gossip's Homeschool Leaders Forum is for the sharing of important information for all homeschoolers in NC, such as notifications from the DNPE, etc.

If you are a Homeschool Group Leader or Administrator, be it a support group, play group, co-op, no matter how small, please join so that this information can get out to all homeschoolers. It is imperative that we are united and informed when it comes to matters of legislation and homeschool requirements in our state.

Together, we can make sure all homeschoolers are informed!

Great gift idea for homeschoolers!
