Chv STEM Registration 2022-2023
Welcome to the Cheverly STEM Education Center!  As much as we love summer, we are already looking forward to the fall.  And new this year, we will be accepting 5th grade students for a full line-up of classes on Wednesdays.

Now in our ninth year, we are thrilled to be offering new and exciting classes like forensic science, marine biology, persuasive writing & public speaking, history's mysteries, sociology, creative writing, field biology as well as standard favorites like chemistry, engineering, algebras I & II, biology and anatomy.  Many of our core high school classes, (biology, engineering, chemistry, algebra I and II), will meet two days/week, on both Tue and Thur.

As always our mission is two-fold, (1) to provide courses not typically available to homeschoolers, and (2) support a unique and diverse community of learners.  Although we are not a school, classes at Cheverly STEM can support the homeschool journey.  Our classes are student-centered and project-based as well as academically rigorous, and are taught by education specialists or professionals in their field.  

Our class size is usually 12-15, some as small as 8 and some as large as 18-20, depending on the type of class.
We will run a waitlist for any class that fills.

Our academic calendar runs September through May, divided into four 7-week quarters.  Our classes meet Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, 10 am - 3 pm with a full hour for lunch, noon-1:00.  Many of our classes are cumulative in nature making them difficult to join mid-year.  For these classes it is best to consider taking it for the full-year.   Teacher bios and more detailed course descriptions are available on our newly updated (and still developing) website CheverlySTEM.com.

Parent Volunteers
As we've grown over the years, we come to realize that we need a little more help. This year we are asking each family to volunteer 1.5 hours each semester.  Many hands make the load light and this little bit of parent help each day will off-set the need to hire more staff and helps us keep our fees low.  The volunteer sign-up form will be available at the end of the summer as a link on our website.    

There are two parent help categories this year
1. Lunch Monitor - assists monitoring students during our lunch hour and helps to clean up at the end
2. Afternoon Clean-Up Crew - helps wipe down rooms, remove trash, and get ready for the next day

A sign-up form will be available at the start of each quarter.  We appreciate all of the help and support of our parents and families!
