Q. If we are currently registered as a home-schooled family, do we need to unregister as such once we enroll in your program?
A. Yes. We are a public charter school. Once your student enrolls with us, they are considered part of the public school system.
Q. Is my student required to participate in state testing through your program?
A. Yes. Like every other public school, we receive state funds to operate our school and therefore required to meet state requirements in reference to state testing.
Q. What are the graduation requirements for your school?
A. Currently, a student needs 24 credits to graduate.
Q. I have a four year old who is already reading. Can I enroll my student at the age of four into Kindergarten at your school?
A. No. Your student must be five years old prior to September 1st of any given year in order to enroll into our Kindergarten program.
Q. Your program states that teachers do home visits every two weeks. Is that a requirement, or is this part of your program flexible?
A. We have learned that every student requires an individualized approach. At our charter, the staff and teachers strive to make every experience a positive one. For example, if your family would prefer less home visits but more email interaction, then we are happy to make this accommodation for you.
Q. Is it possible for my student to take an elective course at our local school?
A. We encourage families to talk directly first with their local school’s principal. We have experienced great success with this particular scenario. It does however require the approval of the local school’s principal to allow your student to be on school grounds during school hours.
Q. Are there funds available for alternative curriculum?
A. Yes! Starting in the 2018-2019 school year there is $1000 ($500 per semester) available per student to use on curriculum.
