Please Note: Class and Supply Fees listed cover Fall Semester 2020 and Spring Semester 2021. All classes meet for 50 minutes at a time for 28 weeks. Please see our dates & schedules.

If we are unable to hold orientation August 10th and our in-person start date is pushed back, these classes will be held online on the days and times they are scheduled until our 1st day of in-person classes. No class or supply fee refunds will be issued as we will be paying tutors and purchasing supplies. (Supplies needed while doing online classes will be organized by tutors and available for pickup at the director’s house.)

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".

  • 8th through 12th Grade: 3 - 4 hours per week

 Ancient Cultures: K - 3rd Grade

History for the elementary child is most loved when it can be recreated, worn, seen, or even tasted. Utilizing the senses is key for instilling in children a love and appreciation for the past. Students will become excited as they are introduced to different cultures and ideas of the ancients from Egypt, the Indus Valley, or the Inca Empire. We will study these civilizations using hands-on projects that will embrace a student’s creativity. Whether it is a rainmaker of the Mayan Indians or a Chinese lantern, students will craft ideas that had great value to the ancients yet still resonate with the world today.

Pre-Requisites: Students must be able to use scissors and cut proficiently, color and paste well, and write simply but legibly.

Class Fee: $200

Supply Fee: $35

Middle Ages: 4th - 7th Grade

What can be more exciting than King Arthur and his chivalric knights or Guinevere and beautiful ladies of the court? Would you like to discover the great cathedrals of Europe and create stained glass or what might be your family coat of arms? Do you know about Joan of Arc or the Black Plague? Students will glimpse into the time of the Middle Ages for the thousand years from about CE 325 with the fall of the Roman Empire to the 1500s and the beginning of the Renaissance using maps, time lines, handouts and hands-on projects that cover historical figures, government, art, architecture, music, literature, and science.

Pre-Requisites: Students must be able to read and write well and quickly and follow basic instructions.
