What Is a University-Model® School?
University-Model® education takes the best aspects of traditional public or private school and the best aspects of homeschooling and blends them into one unique model. UMS (University Model® School) uses a university-style schedule adapted to the elementary, junior, and senior high levels.
Professional faculty conducts central classroom instruction in their area of expertise. Elementary students attend classes on Tuesday and Thursday while secondary students go to school on Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. Students spend satellite days off campus with parents, who continue the instruction and monitor student progress as directed by the classroom teachers.
The parent and faculty roles are defined for each course providing parents with the required level of assistance for their student. Weekly lesson plans and projects are prepared by the UMS® faculty and uploaded online including detailed instructions for parents.
Parents are trained and equipped to deliver instruction faculty collaborate with parents on student achievement goals and strategies whether planning on attending college, trade school, apprenticeship, or the workforce after graduation.
