Q: What grades does the 3 Day Model offer?
A: Northpoint's full day 3 Day Model is for students in Pre-Kindergarten through 6th grade program.
Q: What days does the 3 Day Model meet?
A: Classes meet on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 8:30 am-3:30 pm each week. Our Pre-Kindergarten class meets from 8:30 am-1:30 pm with an option to add an enrichment block for full day Pre-Kindergarten. Students are given assignments to complete at home on Mondays and Fridays.
Q: If I have a student in 7th-12th grade, can they attend a third day each week?
A: Yes, students in 7th-12th grade are able to enroll in our Choice Elective Day on Mondays. More information is available under "Choices" on our menu.
Q: Is Northpoint accredited?
A: Northpoint Homeschool Classes is a resource for homeschool families and is not accredited. Parents are responsible for keeping and maintaining their student's transcripts. Our Director of Academics hosts a transcript workshop meeting each year to assist families with record keeping and our online grading system keeps a record of grades for parents.
Q: Can my student pick and choose the classes he would like to take or does he have to take his entire class load at Northpoint?
A: Students in our 3 day model are enrolled for the full day on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Students in Pre-Kindergarten through 3rd grade will have the same teacher throughout the day for their core subjects, Bible and enrichment activities. Students in 4th-6th grade will have a grade level teacher for the core subjects of math, science, history and language arts. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, they can pick and choose from a variety of afternoon elective options for the last two periods of the day that are combined with our 2 day model students. On Wednesdays, students will have additional class time and enrichment in the afternoons.
Q: What is my responsibility as a parent?
A: On Monday and Friday each week, we ask for at least one parent or guardian to commit to being present to homeschool their student(s). Teachers will provide assignments to complete at home and parents will serve as a facilitator to ensure that their student is completing assigned work. For the primary grade levels of Pre-Kindergarten through 3rd grade, the time spent on at home days will be minimal. As students progress into 4th-6th grade, the workload on the at home days will increase to prepare them for middle school and high school.
Q: Does Northpoint offer financial assistance or accept School Choice Vouchers?
A: Northpoint is a private program offering homeschool classes to families, so we do not accept any state or federal funding. Because of this, we do not qualify to offer vouchers and do not provide financial assistance. Families can choose to pay tuition in full or utilize our quarterly or monthly payment plans, depending on their campus.
Keep in mind that we consider our program to be a five day per week model with two-three in class days and two-three at home days. This makes our tuition very affordable compared to the pricing of traditional private schools.
The other advantage to our separation from state and federal funding is that Northpoint is under no obligation to incorporate CRT, SEL or any other controversial curriculum into our model. We focus on high quality academics!
Q: Are masks mandatory at Northpoint?
A: Masks are optional and up to parent discretion. We continue to practice proper hand hygiene, frequent sanitization of high traffic areas and enforce strict policies on staying home when you are sick. Otherwise, we are not requiring masks or social distancing for the 2022-2023 school year.
Q: What if we decide to drop a class in the middle of the school year?
A: Enrollment at Northpoint is a commitment for the entire school year. Parents are given the option to pay monthly or for the year, but our program plans our annual budget based on student enrollment. For more details on our withdrawal policies, please refer to the Financial Agreement.
Q: Can students attend Northpoint if they have a learning disability or have received accommodations (i.e. IEP or 504) from another school?
A: While under certain circumstances, Northpoint can be a good fit for students with learning challenges, Northpoint is not equipped nor are teachers and staff specifically trained in this area. In addition, students must be able to conduct themselves in the classroom without being a disruption and must also be able to complete the work outlined in each course description.
Q: If a student struggles with anxiety, can he or she still attend Northpoint?
A: Students must be able to conduct themselves in the classroom without being a disruption and must also be able to complete the work outlined in each course. For example, many classes require presentations in front of the teacher and peers as part of the class grade. If the student is unable to complete the assignment, he or she will be unable to earn the points for that presentation.
Q: What if my student has a medical condition that may cause extended absences?
A: While the Northpoint model provides for more flexibility than a traditional public or private school, attending classes in person is crucial for students to master the concepts taught during school days. If students have days they will miss, we ask that families notify teachers in advance and make arrangements to complete assignments at home. It is ultimately the parents' responsibility to ensure that their student is caught up on assignments and is keeping up with the class content.
Q: Is Northpoint affiliated with the church?
A: Northpoint is a non-denominational program and is unaffiliated with any specific denomination or church. However, Northpoint has a long-term lease agreement in place with Hope Church.
Q: What if we do not have our children immunized?
A: Immunization records are not mandatory.
Q: Is my enrollment fee refundable if we change our minds before classes begin?
A: No, the enrollment fee is non-refundable.
Q: Can my student go to Northpoint if he has been suspended or expelled from another school or homeschool program?
A: Students must be in good standing with any previous school or homeschool program in order to be considered for enrollment at Northpoint.
