If you want to enroll your child in North Texas Academy (grades 9- 12), but you feel you do not need the assistance of a teacher, this might be the program for you.
The student will take 5 courses, which include an English course, a Literature course, a Math course, one of the Social Studies courses we require, and a Science course. We will need to see the application for Parent is the Teacher Program and from there, we can determine what courses your child needs to do for that year. The math course will also include a Solutions Manual which gives the answer to each math problem in the student’s book as well as shows how to work each problem.
This program is not recommended unless the parent feels qualified to teach high school level courses and can be actively involved with the child.
The parent is the teacher, and the parent does all the teaching and grading of the lessons.
The work is not sent in every two weeks, as on the Traditional Extension Program, but sent in when the entire program has been completed at the end of the year.
A transcript will then be sent to the parent for their child’s work.
The cost is $1,345.00 and must be paid when you send in the application. This money is non-refundable.
If you would like to enroll in the Parent is the Teacher Program, please complete the application. It is titled “APPLICATION FOR THE TRADITIONAL EXTENSION PROGRAM AND PARENT IS THE TEACHER”.
If you want to enroll in North Texas Academy, grades 9 – 12, and be on the Parent is the Teacher Program, where the parent acts as the teacher and grades all the work, the cost for this program is $1,345.00 IF WE ARE PROVIDING THE BOOKS. The tuition is $800.00 and the textbooks cost $545.00 with shipping.
There is another way you can save money on this program! If you want to search for used textbooks, rather than getting all new textbooks from our school, you will pay only the tuition, which is $800.00. We will provide you with the ISBN numbers and names of the books and you can buy used textbooks online. If you are unable to find any of the books, you can always get them new from us, but most parents are successful and can find our textbooks used, online.
If you need a payment plan for either route you go, the $1,345.00 plan requires $745.00 down payment and the balance is paid out at $160.00 per month. The $800.00 plan requires $300.00 down and the balance can be paid out at $160.00 per month.
All tuition payments on any program with Plano Home School Academy and North Texas Academy, including payments made ahead of schedule, are non-refundable.
