The Mission of NARHS is to strengthen home-based education by providing consultation and tools to support course planning, student work assessment, quality academic learning, and goal setting leading to a high school transcript and diploma which have far-reaching transferability and acceptance.PROFILE OF OUR SCHOOL
The North Atlantic Regional High School is based in Auburn, Maine, with our business office in Yakima, Washington. NARHS is a state-authorized private school recognized by the Department of Education and regionally accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools www.msa-cess.org. We assist students and their parents to create a customized high school program for each student, whether he or she is attending public school, private school, college classes, or homeschool. For homeschool families, parents decide and direct the content of each course, while fulfilling the requirements for each specific high school credit. Once the student has acquired a minimum of 17.5, he or she is eligible for a high school diploma. However, students graduate with varying numbers of high school credits according to their ability, ambition, and academic goals.
Founded and incorporated in 1989, we adhere to the foundational core curriculum outlined by the state of Maine, but allow broad flexibility in fulfilling those requirements under the careful one-on-one assistance of our certified staff.
Students working on their high school courses are allowed to work at their own pace; there are no speed limits here. Students are allowed to go as fast as they like, or as slow as they need.
Our high school program is enjoying an expanding presence in other states, especially among homeschoolers. In recent years, we have been gratified that public schools and other private schools in numerous states have referred students to NARHS.PROFILE OF OUR STUDENT BODY
Students come to us with a mix of public schooling, private schooling, and college work.
Most of our students have been homeschooled for at least part of their school careers, but not all. Some students begin working on their high school diploma requirements before age 14; Others finish the requirements as adults. For some students, we work with their very first course selections for high school, while for others we work to reconstruct the academic work they did years ago.
NARHS graduates have moved into college, universities, careers, and all branches of military and government service. Some continued the family farm, some went to technical schools, and some became apprentices in other trades. Over the years, a few dozen graduates were young professional actors and actresses, professional sports figures, professional musicians. These students presented unique issues to manage while they carried out careers and maintained studies with NARHS. We have that flexibility.
Parents and students enjoy the diversity offered in the academic programs provided under the guidance of our school. Likewise, the school enjoys the diversity offered by this mix of students.
Because each student’s program is custom-designed, there is no class standing or class ranking, but the student’s GPA is calculated to reflect his or her level of academic performance.
Although not all our students were prepared in the same way, they WERE all prepared for the same thing -- they were prepared for adulthood

Easy Grammar is exactly what its title says-it's a grammar resource that's easy to teach and use. With only a few pages to do a day, students can learn without feeling overwhelmed. Everything needed is provided, from teacher suggestions and reproducible student pages to unit reviews and answer keys. If you don't want to make copies of all the student pages, there are separate workbooks and test books available.
In a step-by-step format, this program covers prepositions, parts of speech, usage, capitalization and punctuation, as well as how to write a sentence, a friendly letter, or e-mail.
A great add-on to your regular language arts program, this course will give students the tools needed for successful writing. It breaks each concept down into bite-sized pieces, so by the time they are up to Easy Grammar Plus (grade 7), they should have an understanding of all grammar concepts. And if you'd like to continue reviewing grammar through high school, you can do that with the Easy Grammar Ultimate series. Softcovers, from ISHA Enterprises.-Rebekah

Susan Wise Bauer wrote the Writing with Skill for students to begin to work through independently, and the text is written directly to the student. Organized by days, each "step" progressively moves students through the workbook as they move from one day to the next. Covering the basics of composition, outlining, sentence skills, beginning literary criticism of poetry and prose, writing narratives and descriptions, and researching and documenting sources, the course culminates with a final project. Using extensive literary models and step-by-step instructions on the lesson concepts, students will gain the tools needed to write with clarify and confidence. All source material is included; students will need to write their assignments in a separate book. Grade 5-8. 544 pages, softcover. (younger year levels as well)
All About Spelling takes the struggle out of spelling! Based on the Orton-Gillingham approach, this curriculum teaches encoding skills, spelling rules, and multisensory strategies to help students become proficient spellers. This mastery-based curriculum is also appropriate to use with students who have dyslexia. Students beginning the program should start with Level 1 unless they've worked with a phonogram-based program previously.
The teacher's manual includes a "Preparing for Level 1" section that provides clear action steps to help you prepare, and includes a list of materials you'll need to acquire, which letters/letter combinations will be taught, and how to set up and use the program. This section is followed by step-by-step lesson plans. Twenty-four lessons (15-20 minutes each day) are included and each is lightly scripted for easy instruction.
In Level 1, students will learn 32 phonograms such as qu, th, sh, d, e, n; how to hear the individual sounds in words; how to represent sounds using phonograms; and solid spelling rules governing the use of phonograms. Activities in this program engage visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learning paths. Students continually review through four types of flashcards: Phonogram cards, sound cards, key cards (rules or generalization about spelling), and word cards. These cards are printed on different colored paper so you can easily tell them apart; cards are lightly perforated and must be torn apart. Students will also practice with letter tiles to internalize spelling concepts before working with pencil and paper.
Subjects: Spelling Vocabulary, Poetry

A new series on teaching writing, from the author of "The Well-Trained Mind," In "Writing with Ease," Susan Wise Bauer lays out an alternative plan for teaching writing, one that combines the best elements of old-fashioned writing instruction with innovative new educational methods. The workbooks provide lessons, student worksheets, and teacher instructions for every day of writing instruction. Each covers one year of study. Used along with "Writing with Ease," Level One (first in a planned four-volume set) completes the elementary-grade writing curriculum.

Assessment and LEarning in Knowledge Spaces is a Web-based, artificially intelligent assessment and learning system. ALEKS uses adaptive questioning to quickly and accurately determine exactly what a student knows and doesn't know in a course. ALEKS then instructs the student on the topics she is most ready to learn. As a student works through a course, ALEKS periodically reassesses the student to ensure that topics learned are also retained. ALEKS courses are very complete in their topic coverage and ALEKS avoids multiple-choice questions. A student who shows a high level of mastery of an ALEKS course will be successful in the actual course she is taking.
ALEKS also provides the advantages of one-on-one instruction, 24/7, from virtually any Web-based computer for a fraction of the cost of a human tutor.
