Many patients at City of Hope use home instruction before returning to school. K-12th grade students who are unable to attend school can receive alternative education in their homes through their local school districts. City of Hope’s School Program helps patients and parents coordinate home instruction through their local school district and assists families to advocate for special accommodations if necessary.
We strongly suggest that families consider home instruction for the time between discharge and returning to school.
- Increased normalcy
- Continued intellectual growth
- Smoother transitions back into school after treatment
