Parents are required to be in charge of atleast 51% of their child’s education at home or online. LIFE Group classes, Co-Op classes, and Tutors may be used for “select” subjects, enrichment and supplements. Online/DVD Distance Learning programs (like Abeka) still require parental involvement and consistent accountability. Parents must abide by record keeping policies and meet with our admin for accountability checks.

Q: Does my child need vaccinations to enroll in Grace and Glory Academy?
No. Families enrolled in Grace and Glory may choose a full, partial or delayed immunization plan for their children, or completely decline immunizations because we are home educating. In the state of California, *privately* home educated students are exempt from mandatory immunizations. Students must be educated at home at least 51% of the time to receive exemption.

We also encourage parents to read about the timeless educational methods of Charlotte Mason – a British educator from long ago, who believed that education was about more than training for a job, passing an exam, or getting into the right college. She said education was an atmosphere, a discipline, and a lifestyle; it was about finding out who we are and how we fit into God’s great world!
