PSEO-CHAT

Crown offers the Post-Secondary Enrollment Option (PSEO) to qualified students at CHAT. This program permits students to earn college credit for free while still in high school. Students from CHAT can take classes in a hybrid format in which they meet at Grace Church in Eden Prairie, MN for an hour and a half face-to-face with a qualified course assistant selected by CHAT and approved by Crown. The rest of the weekly activities for classes are online and are led by one of Crown’s online faculty members. This option gives students the opportunity to get support from a familiar homeschool course assistant while taking a high quality online course under the guidance of a credentialed faculty member from Crown. Hybrid courses are limited by location, however Crown does offer all courses completely online as well as on Crown’s campus. The courses have a low student to instructor ratio and are offered in a 15 week format.
