Overview & How to Register
What is the Enrichment Program? The BHEA Enrichment Program is literally designed to enrich the education that each family provides for their children at home. We are not here to educate your children for you, but to partner with you as you do so. You, the parents, are responsible for your students, their education, and their behavior. You are not required to take part in the Enrichment program, either by state law or by any requirement of your membership with BHEA. Roughly one-half of our membership takes part in Enrichment sessions, so there is no pressure.
Can I drop my kids off at BHEA's Enrichment Program? No, not unless your child is over 16, can drive him/herself, and meets other requirements.
Who is involved in Enrichment and how do they qualify? The BHEA Enrichment Program is open to all BHEA members in good standing.
When does the Enrichment program occur? Our Enrichment program consists of 10 to 14 week semesters in both Fall and Spring.
How much does this cost? Our Enrichment Program Registration Fee of $50 per family has been waived for the fall semester of 2020. See the session listings for individual instructor fees and how to pay.
What sessions are being offered this year? For Fall 2020, we have moved those sessions that we could from our central location to small off-site groups or online, using various platforms. We hope to be able to resume as close to normal as possible in the spring semester. You can find the listing of sessions here.
When can I register for the Enrichment Program? You may register for the Enrichment Program any time after becoming a member or renewing your membership. Please note that your Enrichment Program Registration fee has been waived for the fall semester. You can find the Enrichment Program Registration form here. (You must be logged in to the website.)
You may register via email no sooner than 9 a.m. on Monday, July 6. Please be aware that you may not receive a confirmation from the instructor for a day or two. Also, while we are treading in new territory, in normal times, it is not at all uncommon for sessions to fill up. We hope that moving sessions online will actually help with that, but if your preferred session fills up before you get to it, please ask to be added to a waitlist. There is usually a lot of shuffling around throughout the summer and sometimes you can get in.
Important: To remain on the session roster, we ask that your BHEA membership is renewed or completed and your Enrichment Program Registration form is submitted within a week of signing up.
