This individual serves as the teacher who actually instructs the student using the provided materials. A parent with a high school diploma and some academic credit beyond high school may be the Mentor. Individuals other than a parent may serve as the Mentor provided they hold a college degree.
The Test Proctor:
This individual administers the tests which will be mailed directly to him/her. Further, the Test Proctor certifies that proper testing procedures were followed and that the student actually completed the test. The Test Proctor cannot be the student’s parent. If the Mentor is someone other than the parent, then he/she also may serve as the Test Proctor. A Test Proctor must hold a college degree.
Determine who will serve as the Mentor and Test Proctor. Then simply print out and complete the application packet, including the Course Selection and Request for School Records forms. You must be able to answer all questions “yes” on the application in order to begin the program. Select the courses desired, compute your tuition as indicated, and mail the application packet, Mentor and Proctor documentation, and tuition check to the address shown.
Upon receipt of a completed application packet and check, Eaton Academy will order and ship to you all required materials for the course(s) you have selected. Once each Life Pac Booklet has been finished, the Test Proctor is to mail in the test for grading. Upon satisfactory review of the test (students must finish with a test average of at least 80%), Eaton Academy will record and email grades back to the parent. Properly completed Life Pac Booklets may be mailed back after each semester (5 books) or at the completion of each course(10 books). This program is designed to operate as independent study. Eaton Academy does not provide instructors for these courses. Families convenient to Roswell, Georgia, may enroll in on-site tutorial sessions at an additional cost.
Each course is divided into structured, manageable booklets, usually ten booklets per complete course. These materials contain some Christian religious elements which students may choose to investigate. Eaton Academy is not affiliated with any religion and maintains a non-discriminatory admissions policy.
Parents must register with their local school district that they are home schooling their children.
Parents may administer the Distance Learning Program provided they have a high school diploma and have completed some academic credit beyond high school.
Individuals other than a parent may supervise the program provided they hold a college degree. As part of the application, Eaton Academy must receive documentation indicating who will be mentoring the student and what credentials that person holds.
Tests must be proctored by someone other than the parent. The identity and qualifications of the proctor must also be included with the application.
To receive a diploma from the Distance Learning Program, students must provide Eaton Academy with one set of nationally standardized test scores from their high school years, such as the ITBS, Standford, ACT, PSAT, or SAT.
Specific graduation course requirements for a career technology diploma are available upon request.
