Can I see a sample class site? Upon registration, students will receive access to a Google Class Site. The site will be have a layout of all the units (see yellow column in the image) for the semester or year. The sample image demonstrates Physical Science Unit 15 Chemical Compounds. The page list the definitions for the week/key terms, a Quizlet link to practice the terms, sections to read (if applicable, an online textbook will be provided), online lab video (science course), images, assignments, and projects. This is very similar to a regular classroom Google Site because these pages are currently used in public, private, and home school settings. Each site was created by a certified teacher in the current field of coursework and is being maintained by a certified teacher.
What is tuition? Tuition varies depending on the class. Our curriculum packets are available all year long, but our hybrid courses are only listed in the catalog for Fall and Spring only. The pricing for our teacher directed "hybrid courses" are set by the individual teacher. Please visit the instructor pages for more information.
What will my family need in order to complete a course? Every student needs a good wi-fi connection, a Google/Gmail email address (parent can setup for free), and a desktop or laptop computer. If software is needed for a hybrid course, it will be provided for free as a download.
Many curriculum sites online are free, why does your company charge a fee? The majority of the free curriculum sites are full of pop-up ads and involve no feedback or interaction. The dynamics of families have changed through the ages. This means that many times students work on lessons for a few hours alone, while some have a parent that helps them complete each course. Since the learning experience varies, and student preferences change; we have learned to adapt to each different way of learning by providing an easy formatted lesson that covers all the needed coursework for a class in one area. With the online curriculum, students can work ahead because its self paced. With the hybrid courses, students will receive personalized attention (the free sites do not offer that). Our instructors are certified teachers with set office hours to help each online student.
