Registration Fees

The registration fee is $50 per student, per semester.

If you are new to Homeschool Connections, your registration fee must be paid before receiving your Orbund login and scheduling your classes.

If you are a returning family but did not pay the full year registration fee, your winter registration fee will be added to your account at the close of registration on January 18, 2019.

Registration fees are non-refundable.

Class Fees and Materials Fees

Fall Semester Classes:

Class fee is $135 per semester, due September 30, 2018.
Classes paid after September 30, 2018 are $175.

Winter Semester Classes

Class fee is $135 per semester, due by January 30, 2019.
Classes paid after January 30, 2019, are $175.

Materials Fees

All students are required to bring basic school supplies (paper, pencils, etc.). Most classroom materials are included in the class fee. However, classes that require textbooks, a laptop or other school supplies will be at an additional expense. Be sure to read the class descriptions thoroughly.

Study Hall Fees and Policies

Study Hall fees are $65 per study hall, per hour.

Any student on campus without a parent and not enrolled in a class must be registered into a study hall during that time. Any student found on campus without a parent and not in a class will automatically be charged a study hall fee.

Students may not be registered for back-to-back study hall periods.

Students in study hall will need to bring quiet materials to study, read, etc. Study halls are intended for independent work and do not provide tutoring.

Lunch Fees and Policies

Lunch fees are $15 per semester.

Any student on campus during lunch period will be charged the lunch fee, regardless of parental supervision.

Parents who volunteer to supervise as lunch monitors can have lunch fees waived. There are a limited number of lunch monitors at each campus. If you are interested in volunteering, contact your campus supervisor.

SOARCE Program

Families choosing to participate in the SOARCE program must enroll independently with SOARCE. It is each family’s responsibility to meet SOARCE requirements including, but not limited to, count day, mentor communication, communicating schedule changes and any other requirement set forth by the SOARCE program.

Families enrolled in the SOARCE program that do not meet the requirements will be financially responsible for any and all Homeschool Connections charges.

For those families using the SOARCE funding, you only need to pay the registration fees at the time you register. To receive funding, you will need to be fully enrolled with SOARCE by the end of August, but it is best to do that sooner than later. Once you complete the count day requirements, they will notify us and will pay for the classes they have approved. You will be responsible for lunch fees, study hall charges, and any classes that were not covered by SOARCE.

PLEASE NOTE: It is very important that SOARCE has an accurate list of the classes you want them to pay for. You must notify SOARCE of any changes made to your schedule.

Class Cancellations

If a scheduled class does not meet the minimum required enrollments, Homeschool Connections reserves the right to cancel that class. In such an event, parents will be notified via telephone or email and given an opportunity to select a different class. There will be no change fees for class changes due to classes cancelled by Homeschool Connections.

Special Needs, Learning and Behavioral Disorders

It is our mission to provide a fun, safe and effective learning program for all students. To do this, it is important that each child is in the class that is best suited for his or her abilities. If your child has a learning or behavioral disability, please indicate this in his/her application. This will help us to know how we can best serve you and your family.

Payments and Payment Plans
