Parents assume the role of “co-teacher” for the younger grades. The on-campus teacher introduces new concepts in class, and provides detailed lesson plans and a checklist for each subject that parent co-teachers use at home with their student(s). Parents are provided everything they need in a detailed, guided fashion. In the older grades, as students begin to work more independently (beginning somewhere between 4th and 6th grades), parents transition to the role of tutor and, with the more difficult material in upper grades, a course monitor. We do not expect parents to master and teach the more advanced material in the upper grades. NCC will provide extensive course material and resources for the advanced subjects in these grades.
