Homework Framework

Framework for Estimated Average Hours of Homework Per Week: As a general rule, the following guidelines are good faith estimates only and, as such, are meant to aid parents as they oversee their child(ren)’s work at home. It should be noted that homework times can and do vary based on ability/work ethic of the student, previous educational attainment by the student, relative difficulty of the coursework, etc. These times reflect a pronounced bias toward English and math from the earliest grades since these two courses are instrumental in the building of a sound academic foundation early in a student’s academic career. These times level out in high school where the Academy assumes a more equalized approach to each of the respective disciplines.
