School Notes

  • The Extraordinary Education Family Learning Center is a 501c3 non-profit organization in the north Houston area. EEC offers a private, parent-directed educational program for K-12th students that allows parents to be more involved in their childs education while also supporting the familys values. EEC recognizes that each child is an individual and has unique educational needs. By involving the entire family in the learning process, the child's educational, social, emotional and spiritual needs can be considered as a whole.
  • While not technically a school, EEC offers many educational opportunities including academic classes such as math, science and English, enrichment classes such as art, cooking and programming, and extracurricular activities such as robotics, mock trial, and young entrepreneurs club. The campus also includes a native wildlife habitat, an organic garden and a makerspace which is open to the community. In addition, the center partners with the local community college to offer dual credit classes such as Biotechnology and Microbiology.
  • EEC is founded on the belief that parents have both the right and the responsibility to direct the education of their children. Families who participate in EEC classes are considered home schools, and parents retain the primary control and responsibility for their childs education. The program is not accredited, yet numerous students have gone on to win prestigious awards and have been admitted to all types of colleges. Instructors are selected based on their passion, experience and dedication, and the organization is supported cooperatively by parents serving in areas of need.
  • Courses are offered a la carte on a university style schedule. This allows families to customize their childs learning experiences according to the child's needs and interests. Families pay tuition only for the courses they take, and parents are free to seek other options for subjects not taken at EEC. Christian values are taught and supported, yet the program is open to all.
  • Students at EEC are not held back nor pushed ahead simply because of their chronological age. Students benefit from intellectual challenge in areas of giftedness while the same students may need extra help in areas of weakness. Class placement is a team decision between parents, teachers and administration based on many factors including the childs skill level, maturity, and interest.
  • Classes are taught in multi-age/multi-grade groups. Many concepts are accessible to a range of ages which makes narrow age grouping unnecessary. Narrow age grouping can also limit social development. Skills-based subjects such as math are grouped by ability rather than age.
