Focusing on Activities and Honors
The Brooks Academy recommends a variety of leadership building activities, regardless of a chosen academic path. This includes a combination of intellectual, civic, artistic, athletic, and altruistic engagements.
One of the first questions most people ask about home school is, “What about social?”
Studies show that actively engaged home school students have more meaningful social time than their peers in traditional settings. The reasoning behind this success stems from practical application; children learn faster and are ready to adapt to adult skills when introduced to “Real World” scenarios. In essence, home schooled children actually encounter MORE valuable social time, because their academic performance is not muddled by social pressures.
Some of the Activities and Honors available to the Brooks Academy Home School scholars include;
- Scholar Merited Organizations, such as the Student Government Association and the National Beta Club
- Volunteer/Community Service, such as hosting food drives, collecting school supplies, and visiting the Veterans’s Hospital
- Intellectual Hobbies and Competitions, such as Chess Club, Book Clubs, Spelling Bee Contests, and Debate/Oratorical Contests
- Citizenship and Civic Duty Activities, such as Entrepreneurial Development, Neighborhood Association Groups, and Political Campaign Field Work
