American Academy On-Line Home School Program

American Academy On-Line Home School Program

Online Curriculum Grades 3 through 12.

The online program we use is published by Alpha Omega Publishers and is called “IGNITIA”. Every subject is on line. The On-Line Program is tailored for grades three through Senior High School.

How the Program Works

  • The student is able to log in at any time during the day and does not need to have a certain time to do the work.
  • A schedule is set up and assignments are due on certain dates which are flexible.
  • The Program is self-grading and in some cases the parent will assist in the grading of written material of the assignment.
  • The student works on the daily assignments until the year’s assignments are completed.
  • The Academy also is in contact with the student assignments for the school year.
  • The grades are taken by the Academy from the online program and placed on the Academy’s record system for later report cards and transcripts.

Parent Training   

  • After enrollment and first tuition payment is made, the parent is sent an email with a link to the training for parent oversight as the “Home School Supervisor”.
  • The Training will help assure the parent that the student is completing the proper amount of work each school day.
  • After the parent takes the training which lasts about an hour on the computer, the parent submits the training results to the academy.
  • After the first tuition payment is made, the Academy places the students account on a credit card automatic withdrawal for the remainder of the school years tuition costs.
  • If the first tuition payment is paid, the Academy sends an email to the parent with the link for the student to log in to the students school assignments.

Affordable On-Line Program

Because the parent takes part in the supervision of the student, the American Academy is able to offer the program to families at an affordable price.  After the Enrollment Fee is paid there are 9 payments of tuition for a full school year and 5 payments of tuition for a semester.

Monthly billing statements give the parent a record of payments of tuition.
