Are there specific times my child will need to be online?

For our live on-line classes, yes. Our classes are delivered live on-line via Zoom. You can download Zoom for free and you will receive an invite to class from your teacher. We do have students who cannot attend classes, and they watch the class recording. For the Classical Memory with Claritas classes, we do not record the information that is specific to Claritas (new memory work and memory review. This amounts to about ½ hour of the 90 min session).

For our self-paced classes, no. Students can access these classes anytime through Moodle.

Will my child receive a grade?

Yes –Our teachers give and grade assignments, are available for semester reviews with parents and give a final grade.

What if my child struggles with the material?

Students have access to the teacher– they are all just a message away! Messages are usually answered within 24 hours during the week.

What does a typical week look like?

Our course Syllabus are housed in Moodle and each student has access to this, along with the course schedule at all times. Each class differs in amount of homework, but typically students will attend class and then have reading, assignments, videos and projects to work on during the week. The expectations are clearly stated and teachers are available throughout the week to give feed-back and help as needed.

What is your educational philosophy?

We believe that Education is the Transmission of Culture and we are committed to transmitting a Judeo-Christian culture in our classes. We believe that teaching is a form of discipleship and to that end pray for our students and seek to provide Godly mentorship. We desire that our students grow in their mastery of the material as well as their understanding of their selves and the part they plan in God’s amazing plan.

What is your refund policy?

We understand that you may realize our classes are not a good fit for your child and so we offer a full refund less 10% fees, for the first 14 days after a class starts. Just email lisa@truenorthhomeschoolacademy.fom
