The flexible school model for kindergarten to 6th grade
School at home (homeschooling) and school on site at Unica.
This school model was examined by the AVS (Office for Elementary Schools) and approved for an unlimited period.
TEACHING AT ANOTHER LOCATION (HOMESCHOOLING)
On Wednesday and Friday, the students learn at an external learning location (homeschooling). The material for this is provided by the UNICA school.
It is important that the children are accompanied and supported by someone. This person is in communication with the teachers of the UNICA school.
The workplace at home must be adapted to the child.
There are regular “digital” time slots for each family to ask questions about the assignments.
PRESENCE LESSONS AT SCHOOL
On Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, the pupils attend classes at the school.
School start: 8.10 a.m.
Classes end at 2:55 p.m. at the latest (may vary, depending on the school level)
No classes during the Ferien des Kanton BL
Other days off can be found in the annual schedule.
The UnicaFlex class is a separate class and complements our regular school program.
The class is taught and supervised by certified teachers.
The majority (51%) of lessons are covered at the school.
Certain subjects can be attended in a regular class at the UNICA school.
TRIPS & PROJECT WEEKS
Every one to two months, the class plans an experience outside of the school building. These can be hikes and exhibition visits (Museum of Transport Lucerne) or projects such as glassblowing, forest excursions, robotics, Lego building and much more.
Once or twice a year, we conduct a project week as a whole school. During this week, the students are free to choose the workshops and gain new experiences and insights outside of their usual class group.
We have smaller classes, which allows individual attention.
The class is multi-level. We divide into a kindergarten class, a younger class (1st-3rd grade) and the older students (4th-6th grade).
Each class has its own class teacher.
There will be group sequences where the whole class (1st-6th grade) will be together.
This model perfectly fits our lifestyle. We can invest in our children and tackle projects that the children are very interested in right now.
This school model covers all subjects of the Lehrplan 21. The learning material is acquired at the school and at home. They receive the material from the school.
All subjects are offered in the school. The in-depth study and the exercises for it will be done at home.
The UNICA School takes care of the learning assessments, the review of learning progress and the evaluation at the end of each semester.
FOR WHOM IS THIS SCHOOL MODEL?
- For families who value spending time with their children and who see learning as a process that also occurs outside of school.
- For parents who are interested in educational topics and want to and are able to invest more in their children’s education.
- For children who can work independently and want to learn
Thank you for your interest in our school model!
We would like to invite you together with your child to a non-binding meeting with the school management or the project management. School entry is possible at any time.
Since space in this class is limited, we will fill the class as registrations are received.
