This program is designed for parents that feel qualified to teach their child. The curriculum and check-sheets (assignments) are the same as on the Traditional Extension Program, however, the parent does the teaching and grading of all the assignments. At the end of the program, the parent mails the graded work to the school as proof it was done. Once the school receives the work, a transcript will be mailed to the parent for the child’s work for the school year. All work must be sent via UPS or FedEx or some sort of tracking system if you use the United States Postal Service. The program is only recommended for parents that feel qualified to teach their child and do all of the grading on the school work.

If you want to enroll in Plano Home School Academy, grades 4 – 8, 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.
