Program Eligibility

Special Needs, Learning & Behavioral Disorders

It is our mission to provide a fun, safe, and effective learning program for all students. To do this, it is important that each child is in the class that is best suited for his or her abilities. If your child has a learning or behavioral disability, please indicate this in his/her application. This will help us to know how we can best serve you and your family.

Understand that Homeschool Connections is not equipped to serve students who aren’t able to function within the range of grade levels that their age indicates, academically or behaviorally. If a child is not able to do so, they may be asked to change classes or leave the program.


Age Eligibility

Children must be 5 years old by December 1 to participate in kindergarten classes. It is important that you assess your child’s readiness before enrolling in kindergarten and 1st-grade classes. Children should be able to follow simple directions and have developed motor skills in order to hold a pencil, use scissors, etc.

Children must be at least 6 years old by December 1 to participate in elementary (LE) classes.

Children must be 18 years old or younger on September 1 to participate in high school (HS) classes.

A student may only enroll in classes that include student’s grade level. Students enrolled in classes outside of their age group will be dropped from the class and notified via email. Use your student’s schedule to verify that their student profile lists the correct grade.

Study Hall

Study Hall fees are $85 per study hall per semester.

Any student on campus without a parent and not enrolled in a class must be registered in a study hall during that time. Any student found on campus without a parent and not in a class will automatically be directed to the study hall room and charged a study hall fee.

Students may not be registered for back-to-back study hall periods.

Study halls are intended for independent work and do not provide tutoring, so students will need to bring quiet materials to study, read, etc.

Lunch

Lunch fees are $20 per semester.

Any student on campus during the lunch period will be charged the lunch fee, regardless of parental supervision.

Parents who sign up to supervise as lunch monitors can have lunch fees waived. There are a limited number of lunch monitors at each campus. If you are interested in volunteering, contact your campus supervisor.
