Lewis-Palmer Home School Enrichment Academy
Instructor: Rose Dunphey   
For the  2015-2016 School Year

The Lewis-Palmer HomeSchool Enrichment Academy (HSEA) is a program designed to support families of home schooled students in kindergarten through 8th grade.  Children in grades K-5 receive a full array of Enrichment activities to include Music, Art, PE, and exploratory activities in science, literature, geography, and history.  Students in grades 6-8 can choose from several elective offerings in those subjects and more. HSEA provides all the necessary materials and equipment.  
The Lewis-Palmer Homeschool Enrichment Academy is offered at no cost to enrolled families, made possible by educational funds received from the state of Colorado.  Due to this fact, students enrolling in HSEA are required to attend for the full day (Thursdays from 8:20 - 3:30) and may not be dually enrolled in other programs or schools that also receive state education funds.  While HSEA offers homeschooled students a connection to the public school setting, we are not staffed to offer a full array of education services, including special education services.  
Please direct any questions regarding enrollment to Rose Dunphey,
(719) 640-6392 or Lori Benton, (719) 488-4700.
