FAQs

We encourage you to reach out with any questions!

I live outside the U.S. Will I need to comply with educational and testing requirements for the country I reside in?

Because you are enrolling in a U.S.-based school governed by U.S. homeschooling and high school educational laws, your student’s education will follow the U.S. high school graduation requirements. At this time, the U.S. does not require testing to graduate from high school.

Is the registration fee per student or per family?

Our registration pricing is per family, but our administration fees are per student.

Do you offer a payment plan?

We do have a payment plan available for the yearly family fee (student admin fee needs to be paid-in-full at registration).

 

To learn more about our payment plans, please schedule your free consult.

What age student can enroll with Homeschool Directive?

Students must be at least 12-years-old by September 1.

Students must not be older than 19 by September 1 during their senior (final) year.

I only have elementary-aged kids, can I still enroll my family?

No. Homeschool Directive’s first priority is to families with high school students. You must have at least one (1) student aged 12 by September 1 to enrolled with Homeschool Directive.

If you have at least 1 student over 12, you can enroll younger siblings if you would like.

Will this educational pathway get my student into university?

While we can’t guarantee acceptance by a university (no school can do that) we can assure you that other home educated students around the world have followed this pathway and been accepted to universities.

Depending on which university your student wants to attend, they may need to take the SAT and/or AP classes.

If taking AP Classes are a requirement of the university your student wishes to attend, we recommend reaching out to Dumb Ox Learning regarding the AP courses they offer: https://dumboxlearning.co.uk/

We can discuss all of this during your academic advisement meeting after you’ve joined the program.

Do you require testing?

No. We believe that it should be up to the parent if their student needs to complete testing. The Academy follows U.S. homeschooling and high school educational laws. At this time, testing is not a requirement for graduation in the U.S.

Will you teach my teen for me?

No. We do not teach any classes. We do, however, have a recommended (though not required) list of vendors who provide AMAZING courses.

Will you plan the school year for me?

No. Because we value educational freedom and student-led education, we leave curriculum and activity plans for the year up to the individual parent.

If you need help creating a curriculum plan for the year, you can hire one of our curriculum consultants for an additional fee.

My student has unique learning abilities/challenges/is neurodivergent/has a passion project/etc. Will you be able to accommodate that?

Yes! We have a simple and flexible requirement structure that you customise for your student. Your assigned Academic Advisor will be able to direct you in that process.

We are unschoolers/Charlotte Mason/Classical/Waldorf/Road Schooling/etc. Will this work for us?

Yes! We have a simple and flexible requirement structure that you customise for your student. Your assigned Academic Advisor will be able to direct you in that process.

How does recordkeeping work?

When you register, an online portal will be created for you to submit completed coursework for recordkeeping. Our team enters that information into our recordkeeping database and issues the transcript to you at the end of the year.

How do parents meet with their academic advisor?

Meetings take place via Zoom.

Additionally, when you register, an online portal will be created for you. You can message your academic advisor at anytime via the portal.

Are you accredited?

We are actively pursuing accrediation through the
Western Association of Schools and Colleges.

Becoming accredited can be a lengthy process but is retroactive.
