Questions & Answers
HOW DO I SCHEDULE A TOUR?
Please send us an email if you are interested in touring our facilities. We would love to meet you! Tours are only available on the first and third Monday and Wednesday of each month between the hours of 9:30-2:00 pm.
A parent Q&A along with a student assessment will be scheduled following the school tour. Assessments take approximately 30 minutes. Depending on the assessment and parent Q&A, an invitation to register for the upcoming school year may follow.
The last day to register or the current school year is October 1st. NPCA will not accept new students after this date.
DO YOU OFFER FINANCIAL AID OR SCHOLARSHIPS?
As a small homeschool co-op, we have limited resources, but always try our best to help families who may be in a tough financial situation. Scholarships are offered on an as-needed situation and are not guaranteed each year. Please contact the school for a scholarship application.
DO I NEED TO PROVIDE STUDENT TRANSCRIPTS FROM THEIR PREVIOUS SCHOOL?
Although copies of transcripts are not required for students entering elementary, please provide copies of testing documents if learning accommodations are necessary for your student to be successful. Students entering 7th grade through high school must supply a current report card and/or transcript.
DO I NEED TO PROVIDE PROOF OF SHOT RECORDS FOR MY STUDENT?
At NPCA we do not require proof of student shot records. We understand each family is different and want you to make decisions based on what you feel best for the health of your student. We do ask that you kindly keep your student at home if they are not feeling well and report any contagious illnesses to the administrations so they may inform other parents within your student's class.
WHEN DO STUDENTS ATTEND AND WHAT AM I EXPECTED TO DO AT HOME?
DO STUDENTS RECEIVE GRADES AND REPORT CARDS?
As a homeschool co-op, our goal is to help bridge the educational gap between home and school. Students have the option to register for our M/W program, T/TH program, or M-TH program. Lesson plans are based on a M-TH schedule. Therefore, when students are at home on either a M/W or T/TH, it is the parent's responsibility to ensure their assignments are completed and any new concepts are introduced.
Yes, beginning in first grade, students are issued numerical grades for core subjects, art, and PE. Report cards are issued every 8-weeks and will be posted on our online school portal.
DO YOU REQUIRE STANDARDIZED TESTING?
No. As a homeschool co-op, we do not follow the TEA guidelines and therefore, standardized testing is not required. Students are given core subject tests, such as, spelling test, math test, reading assessments, history quizzes, etc.
DO STUDENTS WEAR UNIFORMS?
No. We allow our students to dress freely while maintaining a modesty dress-code. Clothing items such as spaghetti straps, short dresses/skirts/shorts, midriffs, or jeans with holes are not permitted. Our student handbook outlines the modesty dress-code in more depth.
