As an extension student, the curriculum is organized so the student can work from his home and select his hours to study. An extension student does two weeks of schoolwork and mails it to the school. The work will then be graded and mailed back to the student. While the work is traveling back and forth, the student knows exactly what is due for the next two-week assignment and starts it, therefore never getting behind in school.

If you want to enroll in North Texas Academy, grades 9 – 12, and be on the Traditional Program, where the teacher helps the student when needed and grades the work, the cost for this program is $2,345.00 IF WE ARE PROVIDING THE BOOKS. The tuition is $1,800.00 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 $1,800.00. 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 $2,345.00 plan requires $745.00 down payment and the balance is paid out at $160.00 per month. The $1,800.00 plan requires $300.00 down payment and the balance is paid out at $160.00 per month.
NOTE: All tuition payments on any program with PLANO HOME SCHOOL ACADEMY and NORTH TEXAS ACADEMY, including payments made ahead of schedule, are non-refundable.
