• Do you provide the textbooks? Where do I get textbooks? How much do textbooks cost?


    +

    FreedomProject Academy does not supply textbooks for students. FPA has chosen with much deliberation all textbooks to be certain they have not been adapted for Common Core, are factually accurate, contribute to a classical education, and embody the Judeo-Christian belief system central to our program.

    FPA has partnered with Rainbow Resource, which has agreed to carry all of our books on their website.

    Select the "Buy Books Bundle" tab inside each class on our website to buy them bundled together from Rainbow Resource. You may also find individual books on their website with the provided ISBNs or you can use the ISBNs to search for books one at a time on the Internet.

    Book prices vary by grade level and course. We have worked hard to only require what is necessary and have taken cost into consideration when choosing textbooks





  • Do you require placement testing? How much time is my child going to spend on homework?


    +

    First-time Elementary students for the 2016-2017 school year are required to take reading and math placement tests in order to place students at grade levels where they can succeed. First-time students entering FreedomProject Academy's Junior High and High School are required to take a math and English placement test. Present students who have not taken a math course with FPA must also take a placement test should they choose to add a math course.

    All potential Physical Science, Astronomy, Chemistry, and Physics students who have not successfully completed Pre-Algebra for Physical Science and Astronomy, Algebra I for Chemistry, or Algebra II for Physics with FPA must take a math placement test, which measures a student’s understanding of the mathematical concepts necessary for success in the science course, before enrollment in Physical Science, Chemistry, or Physics can be finalized.

    Those who have not been with FPA for their first year of foreign language must take a test for placement in a second or third year of foreign language. We have found that incorrect placement is very difficult to correct once classes have started.

    Our school is rigorous. We expect students to attend class, pay attention, turn in assignments on time, and study hard to learn and retain the materials we are teaching. Due dates are given and enforced so students learn life lessons of being responsible with their time and to those in authority.

    Elementary students should expect to work on assignments outside of class for two hours per day including Fridays (though no classes are held on Fridays). Sixth grade students should expect to work three to four hours per course outside of class time. Junior High and High School students should expect to work on assignments outside of class for five hours per week per course.


  • Who grades the assignments? Who prepares the transcripts? Who prepares the diplomas?


    +

    Our teachers grade your student’s assignments. Report cards are provided at the conclusion of each semester. Transcripts are available upon request. If a student meets the requirements for a diploma as listed above, we will issue a diploma. See full information on Graduation Credits


  • What is the maximum age for a student that you will accept at FPA?


    +

    FreedomProject Academy establishes the maximum age for students in its K-12 program to be twenty (20) years of age by August 15.


  • Can I just take one course with FPA? Can I take classes from multiple grade levels?


    +

    Absolutely! You can take any number of classes from 1 to 4 for Sixth grade and 1 to 5 for Junior High and High School. All Elementary students are full-time only.

    Your student can take classes from whatever grade level they need for each subject area in Junior High and High School as long as they are able to pass the test for that level. Elementary students must take all the classes at his or her given grade level.


  • Is FPA accredited? Can we get a diploma from FPA?
    Does your school meet the requirements for state homeschool laws


    +

    FreedomProject Academy is fully accredited by the National Association of Private Schools. FPA’s accreditation guarantees other schools, colleges, and universities across the country will acknowledge the courses students complete during their time at FPA. Students and parents should be secure in the knowledge that FPA’s accredited program will provide a nationally recognized diploma, allowing graduates to pursue higher education or move directly into the workforce.

    Freshman students wishing to earn a diploma from FPA need to be full-time students and successfully complete the required courses all four years. Sophomores who join FPA this year need to be full-time students and successfully complete the required courses for three years. Juniors who wish to earn a diploma must successfully complete at least two years as full-time students. Seniors are welcome to join FPA for one course or as a full-time student, but it will not be possible for them to earn an FPA diploma. Graduation Credits.

    FPA has compiled resources for families to use to determine if they are meeting their own state's requirements. We have provided links to every state homeschool association and links to legal summaries provided by HSLDA (Home School Legal Defense Association). State Info


  • What will I, as a parent, be expected to do? What happens if my child gets sick?


    +

    We partner with you in your child’s education, but you can expect to spend time helping your child with homework and making sure that they get their assignments submitted on time. You need to stay up-to-date with what assignments are due and when they are due so that you can help your child focus his or her time and energy in the proper channels.

    From time to time, illness comes and teachers do their best to work with you to help your child stay up with their class. The best thing you can do in this case is to keep in contact with your child’s teacher(s).

    If your Junior High or High School student is struggling in a subject, FPA offers a tutoring package for $100 per family, which covers a full year of English, math, and science tutoring. This package can be added at any time during the school year.


  • What type of equipment/technology will I need? We don't like technology - is FPA for us?


    +

    You will need a computer that is less than 5 years old, a document scanner, and a USB headset with a microphone. Students are required to use the headsets during class times. Required Technology

    Students can listen to live classes while on a device like an iPad; however, their participation is limited. We strongly recommend being on a computer for class.

    We are a technology-driven school and as such, you need to be willing to embrace the technology we use such as email; Adobe Connect; Canvas; computers; file types such as pdf, doc, and docx; the USB headset; and your document scanner.


  • What about students with Special Needs and Learning Disabilities?


    +

    The terms special needs and learning disabilities are broad and encompass many things and varying degrees of needs and disabilities. Our teachers are prepared and willing to handle individual differences but the extent of those differences may exceed what is possible to handle in an online environment.

    Parents with students whose needs and learning disabilities have affected their ability to function in other learning environments must discuss previous, suspected and/or known difficulties with the Curriculum Director before enrolling.

    A conversation with the Curriculum Director will help parents determine if FPA will be a successful environment for their student. The Refund Policy is applied to all who enroll; a preliminary conversation may save frustration and money.


  • Does my child have to attend the live sessions of class? Can we go on vacation while our children attend FPA?


    +

    All of our classes are presented live, in real time. This is the BEST option for your child as they will be able to participate in the interaction with the teacher and other students. However, we realize that sometimes your student may have to miss class. All classes are recorded and available for viewing 24/7.

    If you do have vacation times planned that do not coincide with our FPA planned breaks, it will be your responsibility to ask the teacher(s) far enough in advance for assignments so that your child will be able to keep up with the class. One travel extension is permitted per semester. To qualify for the travel extension, parents must notify the teacher(s) and the Student Development Director at least 2 weeks in advance about the dates of your scheduled travel. Any assignments not completed prior to travel or while traveling become the responsibility of the student and parent. All missing assignments must be submitted within one week of returning from travel.
