A Chat with UCHE Academy
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
UCHE Academy provides over 80 creative and engaging homeschool support classes, including chemistry, PE, archery, fine art, zoology, speech, theater, guitar, and much more. With three San Diego locations, parents never have to travel far to find great classes in a supportive community.
Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring?
For most classes, UCHE provides all supplies. Students only need to bring a notebook, a pen, and a water bottle.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
UCHE began in 2009 with a heart for supporting the homeschool community. We wanted to provide excellent academic and artistic opportunities for our own homeschooled children as well as for other homeschoolers in the community. UCHE has continued to expand, and we now offer three locations in SD.
What do you love most about your job?
We love seeing students connect to the learning process in a way that fosters curiosity and creativity. As educators, we find great joy in imparting a lifelong love of learning in our K-12 classrooms. As Yeats said, “Education is not the filling of a pail but the lighting of a fire.”
