Character Quality Language Arts (CQLA), Spanish, Speech / Debate, Junior High Math, and science classes are two semesters long, sixteen-seventeen weeks per semester. Students registered for these classes are committing to one full semester with the option of continuing on during the second semester (which nearly everybody does). Composition/writing only are one semester classes.

If you are registering for CQLA after July 1st or you have questions about levels, please contact Ray at 260-450-7063. Returning CQLA students may be moving up to a new level. Please contact Donna (260-433-4365) for advice on CQLA and composition placement for returning students.

Please realize that our classes are heavily academic (i.e. not extra curricular or club- like). Please note sports and other class conflicts before registering.

CQLA students’ complete language arts homework requires 30 mins (for Level A), 45 mins (for Level B), and 60 mins (for Level C) of homework four days a week (non class days); other classes require 30 mins a day for homework. Suggested grades are given for all high school classes via grading sheets periodically throughout the semester.

Note: All CQLA and Meaningful Composition books have samples available at our blog: CQLA samples MC samples—  If you desire to see whether your student would fit in a certain level, you may want to consult the samples. You may also talk to Donna about your student’s level.
