~ ~ ~ Fall 2021 ~ ~ ~ ~
The Cheverly STEM Education Center is thrilled to announce the we are in the planning stages of re-opening in the fall. We hope that our new zoom skills will allow us to offer hybrid classes along side of our usual in-person classes. But after a year of just zooming, we can't wait to get back together in person! No matter the format, our goal remains the same: to provide high quality, engaging and hands-on science, technology, engineering and math classes for middle and high school homeschoolers!
Course Schedule and Registration Information are coming soon! If you'd like to leave us some feedback as we begin to design the course schedule, feel free to complete our Homeschool Interest Form:

More detailed information and registration for our summer camps is coming soon. Until then, mark your calendars for July 12-16 and July 19-23
Our summer camps offer the right amount of learning and fun and are geared for rising 5-9 graders.
New and Restructured Chv STEM Fall 2021 Program Options
Welcome to the Cheverly STEM Education Center! Needless to say this year is still going to be a bit different from our usual. We are beginning to plan for a safe and in-person Grand Re-Opening for Fall 2021. We are hoping to use our new tech skills to broaden our program, allowing for hybrid and in-person classes.
Hybrid and In-Person Classes:
We are pleased to be able to offer many of our classes in a hybrid format, including students via room and students in the room. We will also offer classes that meet both in person (for activities and labs) as well as via zoom. And of course, we will have our usual full-out in-person classes. We will be able to adjust our format to meet the needs of students as the semester moves along. Our goal continues to be to provide some structured learning opportunities, a bit of togetherness and a small slice of normal. Safety is our top priority.
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.
