Course Syllabus: To download & view the course syllabus in each class you must login, go to the registration page and click on the name of the class to expand the information and click "view course syllabus".


Secure Forum: All MHS classes have a secure interactive forum to communicate with tutors, parents and classmates. Tutors will use this platform to communicate about classwork and assignments.

Parents and students access the forum by signing into the website using the username(s) & password(s) created on the membership form and clicking on "forum".


Assignments: For core subject classes including Math, Language Arts, Science, Social Studies and Foreign Language the minimum amount of homework/extension work/project homework assigned on our interactive course forums is as follows:

  • Pre-K through 5th Grade: 1 - 2 hours per week
  • 6th though 8th Grade: 2 - 3 hours per week
  • 8th through 12th Grade: 3 - 4 hours per week


Science Explorations: 1st – 5th Grade

This course is designed to help students connect science to everyday life through extensive observation and research. Students will become scientific analysts by designing experiments to test hypothesis related to the mysteries of the world around us. This course provides a basic understanding in Physical, Life and Earth Science.  

Pre-Requisites: None

Class Fee: $250

Supply Fee: $40


High School Biology: 8th – 12th Grade

This course involves a rigorous research and exploration-based model into the discovery of a wide range of topics. Students will expound on their study of human life starting with cells and concluding with organ systems. The second semester is devoted to the classification of the Animal and Plant Kingdoms and involves multiple dissections.

Curriculum: Science for High School: This course involves the student in a discovery learning process by requiring them to do research (visual learning), discuss what they have discovered in their research (audio learning), and hands-on activities with some sort of lab almost every week (kinesthetic learning). No textbook is required.

Pre-Requisites: Ability to read, write and research at the library and/or on the web.

Class Fee: $250

Supply Fee: $80


High School Physical Geology: 8th – 12th Grade

The study of the physical process that shape the earth’s surface and how those processes effect humans and the environment. A combination of lab, lecture, field studies, and student research and presentations will be used to create a basic understanding of the physical processes of earth. The year long course will be very similar to most college Geology 101 which is taught in one semester.

Pre-Requisites: Ability to read, write and research at the library and/or on the web.
