School Programming - Every school in Shelby County, along with Home Schooled, are invited to
every program we offer. These award winning programs are very popular with the schools because we provide a learning experience that is not attainable within the classroom. Each
program meets or exceeds Ohio State Curriculum standards.
February - Coming to America: 5th grade
May - Civil War Day: 8th grade
June - Dare Camp
October - Pioneer Day: 4th grade
The school programs are supported by grants from the
Monarch Foundation, Shelby County Community Foundation,
Shelby County United Way, and the Sidney/Shelby Chamber of Commerce. We greatly appreciate their continued support.
