Before applying for an online course we want you and your child to understand just how the homeschooling system works. Below we set out what your child can expect on a course and the support they and you will receive.
With our Online Academic Programs, we encourage our students to become independent learners. Our system is based on over one hundred years of experience helping students gain qualifications successfully while studying at home.
When your child is enrolled in one of our courses, they will be allocated to a Student Progress Manager (SPM). The SPM will call you both via Skype soon after enrolment and will be in regular contact with your child to help them stay on track with their studies. She will prepare an Assignment Schedule for your child and will liaise with you both as they progress through their course(s) to ensure that all is running smoothly.
For each subject your child studies with us, they will have a designated Tutor who will work with them through the course. He or she will be responsible for grading and providing full feedback on your child’s assignments and answering any course-related questions they may have along the way. We send you and your child each Tutor’s profile when they are enrolled, so you both will know quite a bit about them before “meeting” them in your Skype call.
If your child is taking an exam course, our Exams Officers are here to help you with any queries you may have about registering your child for their exams, such as finding a convenient exam center.
Teachers communicate directly with individual students throughout each course to ensure that every student is mastering the content, staying on track and performing high-quality work.
Our learning platform is designed to create engaged, active learning and foster a feeling of community with our students. In addition to online content similar to what online schools use for their entire programs, we also incorporate one-on-one sessions, group discussions, live lessons with class participation, group projects and interactive coursework to help students directly engage with their work, their teachers and with other students.
Our proprietary, internationally accredited academic curriculum is developed and maintained in-house by qualified teachers who actively instruct students at the flagship school in Austin, Texas. This is in direct contrast to other online schools that license a one-size-fits-all curriculum from third parties. The courses cover all core requirements as well as global languages and a variety of electives including SAT/ACT prep.
We offer a wide range of support services including tutoring, advising, college application assistance, scholarship search and application consulting, SAT/ACT prep and more.
