Frequently Asked Questions
Question: Is homeschooling legal?
Answer: Yes! Homeschooling has always been legal in all 50 states. Currently, about two-thirds of the states have specific laws authorizing and regulating homeschooling. Preschoolers may legally operate as a small private school or provide "equivalent instruction". The details vary considerably from state to state and opinions about the law(s) vary from district to district. Before starting a virtual private school or homeschool program, it is important that you review your individual state requirements. Please refer to Home School Legal Defense Association at www.hslda.org for more information.
Question: Do I need a teaching degree to homeschool my child?
Answer: No. Dedication, commitment, and hard work (not special training) have proven to produce outstanding educational results in the homeschool setting. Anyone willing to dedicate their time, and with the assistance of a homeschool program such as EIPCS, can successfully homeschool any child.
Question: What if my child has special needs?
Answer: Thousands of families are homeschooling children with special needs, ranging from those in active sports, acting, and other careers, to those with attention deficit disorder (ADD) or severe multiple handicaps. Parents often find that when they bring these children home to be educated, they make significant progress with personal, one-on-one attention. It has been proven that children function best in an organized and structured environment with fewer distractions. Attending a virtual private school or homeschooling, usually proves to be the answer.
Question: How much time does it take?
Answer: A lot less than you think! Students can move through their program at their own pace. In the younger grades, parents, and children often find they only need 3 hours to accomplish their work for the day. This leaves several hours open for activities and educational field trips. High school students usually finish all their work (including research papers, essays, and special assignments) within 4-6 hours per day.
Question: What about socialization?
Answer: Research has found that most students at home are involved in a wide variety of outside activities. These students interact with a broad spectrum of people of all ages and make positive contributions to their communities. Experience has shown that preschoolers are well socialized and able to make lasting friendships across age and cultural divides.
Question: What about electives and extra courses?
Answer: Many teen students supplement their education with community college classes, taking over the direction of their education much earlier than other students their age. EIPCS offers electives in Bible, Spanish, French, Art, Music, Shop, Home Economics, Health, Computers, Personal Development, Physical Education, and Community Service. The curriculum director can assist students in choosing and actively participating in their elective studies. On the K-8th grade level, Art, Music, PE, and Spanish can all be counted as typical elective classes.
Question: How do I track my child's progress?
Answer: EIPCS offers excellent progress tracking through www.MyGradebook.org for tracking student progress, for special assignments (such as book reports), and for contacting certified teachers. Once parents have accessed our virtual private school or homeschool, they can see required tests, quizzes, papers, and grades. This will all be inputted into www.MyGradebook.org website for monitoring. This is an excellent management and communication tool provided at EIPCS!
Question: Will my child receive an official transcript?
Answer: Yes! Students will receive an official Florida State transcript for the purpose of transferring to another private or public school, or for the time of graduating being granted of their official high school diploma. All records are maintained by Educators Inc. Private Christian Schools until a written request by another school or by a parent is made.
Question: What about a diploma choice for students who do not have plans to attend college and just want to graduate?
Answer: Students in need of a high school diploma, regardless of their age, can take advantage of our basic diploma. Our basic diploma is based on 5 credits of vocational training. This is NOT a GED equivalent, it's an actual option for an official diploma. However, because this diploma does not meet a standard diploma's 24-credit requirement in English, Math, and History, this diploma option is not recommended for college bound students or those who plan to continue their education past high school in the future.
Question: Does EIPCS offer formal graduation ceremonies?
Answer: Yes! At the end of May each year, EIPCS has a formal cap and gown diploma ceremony for all of our graduates. Virtual private school students and homeschool students from around the world are invited and encouraged to participate in this special event with their families. To attend one of our graduation ceremonies, you must reserve a spot by completing our "Graduation Ceremony Form".
Question: Will my child be able to attend college with a EIPCS diploma?
Answer: Our virtual private school and homeschool graduates closely parallel their public-school counterparts, about two-thirds go on to attend a post-secondary education and about one-third go directly into the job market. Students who chose a standard diploma have the option to dual enroll during their high school years and go on to complete 2 to 4-year degrees at a community college. Many of our students who have chosen the high honors and scholar diploma choices, have gone on to 4-year universities, including prestige universities like Harvard and Yale. To learn more, please ask about and research our achievements.
Question: Can I contact a certified teacher if I need help?
Answer: Yes! We offer several different outlets for tutoring, such as live video calls, by email, and tutoring over the phone. Our curriculum director is available for questions, services, additional web site assistance, etc. and can always be reached at email@example.com. In the event that a student is having difficulty with their chosen curriculum, a custom designed subject curriculum can be put together for your child on as-needed basis.
