What are the benefits of enrollment?

Each enrolled family participates in the development of their child's education. The parent's participation in our program means that the curriculum will be tailored to each child's specific needs and will result in a plan of study that encourages that child to develop as an active learner, effective communicator, and independent thinker.

Other benefits of enrollment include:

  • Assistance implementing a Catholic classical curriculum and adapting it to the specific student's needs and goals
  • Practical tips on general homeschooling questions, such as how much time to spend on school subjects, how to educate children in multiple grades effectively, etc.
  • Guidance in how to grade the student's daily work through our rubrics, learning objectives, and grading charts.
  • Grading and evaluation of quarterly student work.
  • Record keeping including semester report cards, health records (CA students), and transcripts that are maintained in our administrative offices. Our semester report cards and accredited transcripts are accepted at private and public schools nationwide. Our high school transcript is accepted at colleges throughout the United States.
  • College/Career counseling throughout high school including college recommendations, a personalized high school plan, test preparation, etc.
  • Private school perks including ID cards, HSLDA family discount, academic diplomas, work permits, community newsletter, and access to standardized testing.
  • Networking with other committed homeschooling parents through our list of enrolled families.
  • Access to our Special Services advisors when needed and to our Learning Support, Teacher Services and Special Services Programs.
  • Free online syllabi, optional hard copies of the syllabi, and a discount at our online bookstore.

What happens after submitting the enrollment application?

Once a family is accepted, they will receive a login to the Family Site where they can manage their students. Entrance assessments will be provided for students in Grades 1-12. These assessments are designed to help the family choose the best curriculum for each individual student. An educational consultant will reach out to the family to schedule a planning consultation to help prepare the curriculum for the upcoming school year and review the entrance assessments.
