Year End Testing Results
Stanford Testing for this school year is now completed. BCHE owes a mountain of gratitude to all of the volunteer proctors, monitors, and helpers that make testing possible. In particular, we are so appreciative of the following individuals:
Janet Jackson, for organizing registration for testing, enlisting and assigning proctors/monitors, and organizing the annual End of Testing Pizza Party.
Rene Hunt, for preparing demographic information on all test forms and preparing completed tests for mailing to the scoring company.
Melissa Murrish and Susie Adams, for helping tidy and refresh the testing facility at the end of each day.
Faith Presbyterian Church and Pastor Bobby Adams, for graciously opening their facility and granting us free reign to use all buildings as needed.
Test results should be available for distribution about 6 weeks following testing (late April to early May). Watch for email from our Communications Director regarding these results.
BCHE, CHA, Central Brevard Christian Co-op.... Which ones am I part of???
Now, to address the confusion that surrounds BCHE, Inc. (Brevard Christian Home Educators, Inc.), CHA (Christian Heritage Academy), and the Central Brevard Christian Co-op.
BCHE's existence and purpose are explained in its handbook: "We are in association for encouragement and mutual edification of those who recognize the scriptural imperative and constitutional right to so educate their children. We place a strong emphasis on spiritual maturity and training along with the other educational disciplines. Our common goal is to see our children excel in every area of growth: spiritually, academically, physically, emotionally and socially." Membership in BCHE qualifies you to have access to year-end Stanford Testing, Graduation, and other activities (field trips, support group meetings, etc.).
Your membership grants you the opportunity to enroll your student in Christian Heritage Academy. There are additional tuition fees and documentation requirements. This is a non-traditional private school accredited by the National Private Schools Education Alliance since 1996. CHA's stated mission is: "provide record-keeping, provide information on requirements and resources, provide library resources, in order to assist parents in providing a Christian education, and do this in a spirit of excellence that glorifies the Lord."
The Central Brevard Christian Co-op is a structured tutoring organization that has no formal ties with BCHE. Much of the leadership and membership of BCHE participates in the Co-op, and the web-based information for the Co-op can be accessed through the BCHE website. Membership in BCHE does not automatically allow a family to participate in Co-op, nor is the reverse true. The BCHE Board has granted permission to the Co-op to share its website, realizing that in doing so, it would be mutually beneficial to both organizations. Information about the Central Brevard Christian Co-op can be accessed by using the "Co-op" tab on the BCHE homepage.
