The University-Model

University-Model Education for PreK-12 is an innovative approach to learning that combines the benefits of home-schooling and traditional Christian education. With this model, students attend school for two or three days per week, where they receive the guidance of experienced teachers and a structured learning environment. On the other days, they complete assignments in their “Satellite Classrooms,” which are managed by their parents or guardians, who instill character-building values in the students. This approach allows parents to play an active role in their child's education while providing a well-rounded academic experience.

The Structure

In most University-Model Schools®, elementary students attend school (central classroom) two days a week and are in their home (satellite classroom) three days a week. In some schools, elementary students are in the satellite classroom three days a week.

Beginning in middle school or junior high (sixth or seventh grade), students attend school three days a week and are in their satellite classroom two days a week. While in the satellite classroom, elementary and middle school students follow teacher-designed assignment sheets under the direct supervision of their parents.


By the junior and senior years, students follow a university-style schedule. Following this schedule will provide upperclassmen the opportunity to participate in extracurricular activities or part-time jobs. This type of schedule will also eliminate the adjustment to college. Secondary students are responsible for accomplishing teacher-designed, out-of-class assignments on their own time, under the counsel and supervision of parents. This methodology provides excellent preparation for college.

As students progress through their education, the level of parental involvement progresses alongside them. In the elementary years, parents act as private tutors, providing one-on-one guidance to their children during days in the satellite classroom. In junior high or middle school, parents take on the role of a guide, supporting their children in their studies.


By senior high, parents become more like course monitors, overseeing their child's progress and providing assistance as needed. Regardless of the stage, parents are expected to remain actively involved in their child's education with a loving and responsible approach that continues through graduation.
