Cheverly STEM Education Center
The Cheverly STEM Education Center is a non-traditional education program that primarily provides engaging STEM classes that are not typically available to homeschooled students. Our classes provide structured learning opportunities with a social backdrop all to support the journey of homeschoolers and their families. We started with engaging science, technology, engineering and math classes, but have added a few cool and complimentary humanities as well. Our classes are taught by educators and field professionals and are appropriate for students ages 11 thru 18. We also offer summer STEM camps - why should homeschoolers have all the fun?
Our students are typically 6-12 graders. Unlike typical homeschool cooperatives, Cheverly STEM is a drop-off program. Our students must be able to navigate through their day from class-to-class, taking notes and participating in class discussions and labs. Our students are active participants in the learning process. Our teachers share this goal, by providing engaging classroom activities. Teachers and students work with collaboration and respect. Please feel free to schedule a 'shadow day' to see us in action.
Our teachers are educators and/or field professionals. Many currently working part-time, which allows them to teach with us. We are fortunate to have such a high-quality faculty.
