**Registration for the FULL courses (not the parent-graded courses) for the 2019-2020 academic year is now closed. Please consider enrolling your student for the 2020-2021 academic year!
Registration for the FULL courses (not the parent-graded courses) for the 2020-2021 academic year will open at 12pm (12 noon) EST on March 1, 2020. At that time, a link will be posted here to a registration form to download and/or print, fill out, and email back to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Once the completed registration form is received, a course payment invoice will be emailed to you.
If you are considering applying to Honors Chemistry through PA Homeschoolers, a separate registration form is required. On March 1, 2020 at 12pm (12 noon) EST, a link will be posted here to a registration form to download and/or print, fill out, and email back to me at email@example.com. Once the completed registration form is received, course payment information will be sent to you. NOTE: Only homeschooled students can take courses through PA Homeschoolers. If your student is at a brick-and-mortar school, you MUST take the course directly through Clover Valley Chemistry.
Seats in the full version courses will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis and your student’s seat will be considered reserved after I have received the $50 non-refundable deposit (see below).
Each course is one year long (36 weeks) and the pricing per course per student is as follows:
*Chemistry $550 USD
*Honors Chemistry $600 USD ($650 USD if taken through PA Homeschoolers)
*Introduction to Organic Chemistry & Biochemistry $650 USD
Students will also need to purchase or rent a textbook for each course. Chemistry and Honors Chemistry require the purchase of a lab kit. The Intro to Organic Chemistry & Biochemistry course requires a study guide and a molecular model kit. Details on the required textbooks and lab kits/other materials are given in the descriptions of the individual courses on their webpages (see the top of the page for links).
A non-refundable $50 deposit is due upon registration to hold the student’s place in the class. For 2019-2020, the remainder of the course fee must be paid by July 19, 2019. The course fee (minus the deposit) is fully refundable until September 13, 2019 and 50% refundable after that date and until January 6, 2020.
The schedule for 2019-2020 is for courses to begin on August 19, 2019 and end on May 17, 2020 with two days off from Oct. 14-15, three days off for Thanksgiving (Nov. 27-29), two weeks off from Dec. 23-Jan. 3, and one week off from Mar. 9-13. We will also take off most other holidays. Because of the asynchronous nature of the teaching lectures, families who don’t wish to take time off at these times of the year can work through and work ahead in order to take alternate holidays.
The live “office hour” times for each course are as follows:
Honors Chemistry: Monday / Thursday from 11am-12pm Eastern Time
Chemistry: Monday / Thursday from 12:30pm-1:30pm Eastern Time
Introduction to Organic Chemistry & Biochemistry: Monday from 2:30pm-3:30pm Eastern Time
Attendance at these office hours is not mandatory for students. The teaching of the material is done exclusively through the pre-recorded video lectures and textbook readings. The “office hour” times are simply to give students a chance to get help in real time.
As always… If you are interested in any of the chemistry courses on offer or have questions regarding any aspect of the courses, please don’t hesitate to contact me!
