Home School Partners presents subjects from a Christian/Biblical worldview as explained in the Handbook page on this web site, while making students aware of other worldviews.
Our student (1) wants to be in class, (2) will finish assignments and bring them to class, and (3) will participate in discussions and group activities. A student must have a 75 percent average for all subjects at the end of Week 16 (the last week before Christmas and New Year’s) to be eligible to return the second semester, and must maintain a 75 percent average for all subjects for the rest of the year to remain in class.
Our student will speak courteously to others. We understand that inappropriate talk—anything sexual in nature, obscene or blasphemous language, bullying, and so on—is unacceptable and is grounds for immediate dismissal. NOTE: This also includes anything found in email, texts, instant messages, and posts on Facebook or Twitter or other social media, regardless of whether it happens in class or not. We understand that academic dishonesty such as cheating on quizzes or plagiarism is grounds for immediate dismissal.
Our student will not use classroom time for non-classroom-related cell-phone and computer use, and that cell phones will remain put away unless students are on a break, at lunch, or told they may take them out.
We have read the dress code section completely and agree that our student will abide by it. We understand that repeated refusals to adhere to the dress code will be considered as a reason for the student’s being withdrawn from class.
We agree to read the composition guide handed to students on the first day of class and to make sure our student has access to Microsoft Word or an alternative, as well as reasonable access to an email account and the Internet in order to be able to email compositions. We understand that except for family emergencies, no late compositions will be accepted.
We attest that the student named on this form is not taking or has not within the last 12 months taken any antidepressant (or other selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor) or other psychotropic drug such as (but not limited to) Prozac, Paxil, Zoloft, Luvox, Faverin, Celexa, Lexapro, Cipralex, Lustral, Effexor, Seroxat, or Serzone.
We agree to remit one-third of the yearly tuition ($750 for “9th/10th grade,” $850 for “11th/12th grade”) on the first day of class in August, one-third (same amounts) the first day of class in November, and one-third (same amounts) the first day of class in February, unless arrangements have been made at least 30 days in advance. We understand that no refunds will be given for (a) students who do not return to class by their own choice and/or their parents’ choice (unless the family relocates at least 50 miles away from the classroom location), or (b) students who are withdrawn for not meeting the “Conduct and Performance Expectations,” “Student Expectations,” or “Dress Guidelines” sections on this page. Both (a) and (b) students are eligible to follow along with a “curriculum service” in which assignments and class handouts will be emailed to them throughout the remainder of the class year.
