As a valued customer and fellow home school educator, we want to thank you for allowing the American Academy to partner with you in the educating of your children. We are now entering our 20th year of service to home schoolers as we provide one of the finest and most credible home school academies and educational homeschooling programs.
The best education for your children?
Sometimes it is easy to grow weary in well doing as we have not taken the path of least resistance in educating our children. This was true with Abraham and Lot. Abraham trained his family in the ways of God, while Lot chose the ways of man. Lot chose the ease and approval of man where education separated Lot’s children from God. We will not answer to the Higher Board of Education for our children when we pass from this world, however, when we are presented before the Lord in eternity, we want to hear for us and our children, “well done thou good and faithful servant”. With this in mind, we need to continue to be consistent in preparing our children not only for this time on earth but also for their time in eternity. — M.L. Reynolds, M.Ed.
Starting the School Year
If you are starting homeschooling programs later than the regular starting date, you will be able to continue home schooling until your children have completed the year’s work. Students are enrolled the year round which allows parents to meet the special needs of the family.
Student’s will be promoted to the next grade when the year’s work is complete.
By the end of the school year, your students should have completed:
12 paces in each subject = Grade school … 60 total paces
High School … 72 total paces
or 3 paces each subject per quarter enrolled.

The Master Record Sheet is required for each student. The white copy is for the home school supervisor to keep in a permanent place. The two copies are required to be sent in to the Academy. The first copy is sent at the end of the first semester and the second copy is to be sent at the end of the school year. Grades and Attendance are required to be kept on the form.
The American Academy maintains a high academic standard in which all students are required to score a minimum of 80% or higher on all PACE tests.
If a student fails a Pace Test with a score below 80%, the student is not allowed to re-take the Test. The Supervisor will need to immediately send the failed Test to the Academy in a regular envelope addressed to the Academic Department. A new repeat-Pace will be sent to the Supervisor to be re-taken by the student. A charge of $5.00 will be placed on the account for the Pace.
HOME EDUCATOR CODE OF ETHICS
The Academy requires that students be supervised and directed by their parents or by those designated to home school their children.
The home school Supervisor must never do or allow any practice that would be dishonest or cause dishonor for their homeschooling programs. Honesty builds Character.
ACADEMY HONOR CODE
In order to protect the credibility of home schooling, it is the policy of the American Academy that there be no dishonesty or cheating while working with Academy Curriculum. In the event of deliberate disregard for the policies and procedures of the Academy, the student will be subject to withdrawal.
