Homeschool Testing Services
Homeschool Testing Services offers both online and on-site standardized testing each spring. Testing sites are typically CC community sites. HTS also offers standardized testing preparation services.
CC Connected is a subscription-based online resource that provides access to a vast collection of educational resources and a virtual community of leading learners and educators.
Homeschool Counselor is in its infancy, but the subscription service is growing and already provides exclusive resources such as high-value scholarships, tools for making choices, Great Books college connections and tools for making the best possible presentation to college admissions officers.
Challenge III and IV students may enroll in a unique college credit program partnership with Southeastern University in Lakeland, Florida.
National Memory Master
Students memorize thousands of facts from disciplines such as math, science, English grammar, history, Latin and geography and recite them in competition. Competitors are judged on flawless and creative performances. 2016 was the first year for the National Memory Master competition, which was held during the Capstone Cruise, and the winner, Hannah Tully of Vancouver, Washington, won $10,000.
National Number Knockout
National Number Knockout is a mental math game using addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, roots, and exponents. This the fifth year for N2K as a national competition among 16 finalists, which was held during the Capstone Cruise to the Bahamas. Sophia DiPiazza, 13, of Allendale, Michigan, won $10,000, and her teacher (her mom, Rebekka) also won $2,000.
Challenge Graduation/Capstone Cruise
2016 was the first year for the national Challenge Graduation and Capstone Cruise, but CC plans to make it an annual event. The May 1-5 cruise aboard Carnival’s Victory to Nassau, Bahamas, included the national championship rounds of National Memory Masters and National Number Knockout. Twenty-one graduates and more than 350 members of the CC family enjoyed this year’s cruise.
