Homeschool Plus Benefits

We can be a supportive partner in making your homeschool successful. Homeschool Plus offers:

  • Credibility, accountability, and a professional image of your homeschool.
  • Practical assistance for the homeschool parent who is swamped with work.
  • Quarterly progress report cards.
  • Permanent student records.
  • And much more...

Homeschool Plus Provides:

An Accredited Program

The National Association of Private Schools, a Christian organization that grants accreditation to private schools and academies, accredited our CLE Homeschool Plus program. We were pleased to receive this status without needing to change our curriculum content or standards. A school’s accreditation status from an independent accrediting organization does not provide a legal guarantee that a student will be accepted in any private or public transfer institution. However, it does provide more credibility and demonstrates the program’s voluntary self-examination by a third party.

Academic Counseling

When you enroll, a personal academic counselor will be assigned to your family. Your counselor will answer your questions about Homeschool Plus, and assist in making decisions that affect your child’s education—from beginning placement to graduation with a CLE diploma. All our counselors are committed to caring and professional customer relations.
Your counselor will contact you periodically. In addition, you may call your counselor toll-free at any time during normal business hours. Help is also available by mail, fax, or e-mail.

Home Educator Training

You will receive a free training packet when you enroll. These LightUnits deal with CLE curriculum structure, Biblical principles of education, and procedures for a successful homeschool. You may take the course by correspondence or during a summer session at a CLE Training Center. A CLE Homeschool Teacher’s Certificate will be issued upon successful completion of the training.

Included in your training materials is:
The Homeschool Handbook, a valuable tool that –
   - Answers many questions you will face as a new homeschool family.
   - Outlines the responsibilities and privileges of homeschooling.
   - Offers tips and suggestions for organization.
   - Is filled with encouragement and resources.
   - Helps you benefit from the wisdom and experiences of others.

Achievement Testing Service

We offer an achievement testing service to CLE Homeschool Plus families. The test provides national norms for evaluating student progress in comparison to other students of the same age, and for diagnosing areas of academic weakness so remedial steps can be planned. (The cost of the achievement testing service is not included as part of the CLE Homeschool Plus fees.) Achievement tests also help to determine the recommended starting place for your student in CLE's Bible, Science, Social Studies, and Reading.

Academic Projections

The high school academic projection is a goal-setting tool designed to help you and your students get the most out of the secondary years of their education. It "projects" the courses a student will take through his high school years.

Record Keeping

CLE maintains a file for each enrolled student. This is based on the Quarterly Progress Reports and various other forms provided by CLE. All needed forms are included in the program fee.
Our records would include the following:
   - A transcript of student's work from previous schools, if available.
   - A record of academic work and attendance while in our program.
   - A profile of the student's standardized (achievement) test results.

Report Cards

CLE provides you with manual report cards that you can keep for your own records. We will also send you computerized cumulative report cards each quarter.


CLE offers Grade 8 and High School CLE diploma to those students who successfully complete the work required for graduation, pass a diploma-qualifying test, and submit the graduation fee. This provides tangible verification of completed studies. CLE graduates have been accepted into over 175 colleges and universities worldwide.


Transcripts are provided for students who are currently enrolled in the CLE Homeschool Plus program or who have been enrolled in the past. Transcripts are the official record of high school credits earned showing the student's grade point average for work completed while enrolled in our program, and are based on what has been reported to us on the Quarterly Progress Reports. CLE transcripts will also include approved high school credits earned as listed on official transcripts received from previous schools.

  • Enroll at any time of the year.
  • Define your own school year.
  • Use approved courses from other publishers.
  • Receive a free subscription to CLE LightLines.
