Middle Sc hool HomeschoolingFour Options for 6th-8th: Southeast Academy offers different programs to fit the parent’s budget and involvement. SEA’s unique structure can reduce parent involvement to the level that works best for the family. Parents can choose between our Parent-teacher Led Online, Parent-teacher Led Combo, Distinctive Service program, or Elite Service program.

The Parent-teacher Led Online program uses an award-winning internet-based structure for middle school with thousands of multimedia features, including digital tutors. The accredited program presents a Christian worldview. Students can complete their schoolwork from anywhere using typical broadband internet access. The Parent-teacher Led Online program allows for the convenience and benefits of the online learning system without the added cost of teacher grading or teacher support. A large portion of student work is automatically computer scored, which saves parents time and promptly corrects student thinking while the concept is fresh in the mind. Parents and student can view grades online anytime, which enhances student motivation. New concepts and skills are also integrated across other subjects for reinforcement. This program is called “Parent-teacher Led” because the parent will be more involved throughout the day than our Distinctive and Elite programs below mainly due to the parent being responsible for subjective scoring and tutoring when necessary. Subjective scoring is where human scoring is required for areas our automatic scoring cannot cover, such as essay answers. This is SEA’s lowest cost program for middle school at $125 per month or $110 per month if paying annually. That is about $6 per school day for an accredited private school enrollment. The Parent-teacher Led program includes initial placement testing in the curriculum; 5 subjects curriculum of Math, Language Arts, History/Geography, Science, and Bible; course counselor; technical support; school communications; record keeping & reporting; semester report cards; user guides for curriculum; and annual achievement testing that is required in some states.

The Parent-teacher Led Combo program uses a combination of online and booklet subjects. Math, Language, and Science subjects use an online format, while History/Geography and Bible subjects use a booklet format. The accredited combo format helps transition students from an entirely paper-based curriculum to the benefits of online curriculum by using a combination of formats during the year. Many students will then use an entirely online format the following year. The student will also have more handwriting experience during the year with the combo program than switching entirely to an online curriculum. The combination of formats will offer students some non-computer time for a portion of each day where a computer and/or internet is not required.  The combo program uses the same award-winning internet-based structure for the online subjects. Each of the two booklet subjects are made up of approximately 10 colorful booklets that are mailed out to the parent throughout the year. The booklet curriculum also presents a Christian worldview. Parents have a little more involvement than the Parent-teacher Led Online program because the two booklet subjects do not have automatic computerized scoring for daily work, quizzes, and a test prep assignment called a self-test. Booklets have a unit test where the completed test is mailed to SEA for scoring and record keeping. A very simple quarterly report form for booklets is also mailed to SEA that asks for a list of completion dates for each booklet during that quarter. There is a short delay in viewing booklet grades online due to the mailing of unit tests by the parent. The combo program is called “Parent-teacher Led” because the parent will be more involved throughout the day than our Distinctive and Elite programs below mainly due to the parent being responsible for subjective scoring and tutoring when necessary. This is also SEA’s lowest cost program for middle school at $125 per month or $110 per month if paying annually. That is about $6 per school day for an accredited private school enrollment. The Parent-teacher Led program includes curriculum; initial placement testing in the curriculum; course counselor; technical support; school communications; record keeping & reporting; semester report cards; user guides for curriculum; and annual achievement testing that is required in some states.

The Distinctive Service program uses an award-winning internet-based structure for middle school with thousands of multimedia features, including digital tutors. The unique feature of our Distinctive Service program is that SEA takes care of subjective scoring. SEA teacher scoring provides human scoring for areas our automatic scoring cannot cover, such as essay answers. This structure frees up parents to focus on encouragement, incentives, and occasional tutoring when needed. Compared to our Parent-teacher Led Online program, the Distinctive Service program only costs a little more than $1.50 per day extra to have SEA do the scoring of student work. That normally works out to be an amazing value to parents. The accredited program presents a Christian worldview. Students can complete their schoolwork from anywhere using typical broadband internet access. Parents and student can view grades online anytime, which enhances student motivation. New concepts and skills are also integrated across other subjects for reinforcement. If the parent is busy, Distinctive Service users can purchase optional tutoring sessions from SEA if needed. The Distinctive Service program is $165 per month or $152.50 per month if paying annually. That is about $8 per school day for an accredited private school enrollment with SEA teachers scoring student work! The Distinctive Service program includes curriculum; initial placement testing in the curriculum; course counselor; technical support; school communications; SEA teacher scoring; record keeping & reporting; semester report cards; online curriculum user guide and training videos; and annual achievement testing is included that is required in some states.

The Elite Service program has all the benefits of the Distinctive Service program, plus offers academic concept help via the built-in messaging system, email, telephone, Skype, etc. This is an essential program to free up more parent time! It also protects relationships in the home. The Elite Service program is the best financial value, because students have access to academic help for only $35 per month more than the Distinctive Service program. Having outside academic help available will free up the parent to focus more on encouragement while protecting relationships. The Elite Service program is $200 per month or $184 per month if paying annually. That is about $10 per school day for an accredited private school enrollment with SEA teachers assisting with academic help and scoring student work! The Elite Service program includes curriculum; initial placement testing in the curriculum; course counselor; technical support; school communications; SEA teacher scoring; academic concept help via the built-in messaging system, email, telephone, and Skype; record keeping & reporting; semester report cards; online curriculum user guide and training videos; and annual achievement testing is included that is required in some states.

6th-8th is individualized: Students learn at different rates of speed depending on the subject or concept. Students are guided through the lessons at their own pace in both online and booklet curriculums, giving them the chance to master concepts at their ability before moving on to more challenging lessons. This allows students more time when needed, but also allows them to move quickly when they have mastered a concept. Students finish lessons by completing various questions, activities, and quizzes. There are approximately 130 lessons per two-semester subject.

Semester, quarterly, and monthly payment options are a provided convenience for the parents’ commitment of two semesters.
