  • Course Breakdown:

    • You may take as many courses as you need. Some families take four or five classes, and some come for one course.

      • We greatly complement the dual enrollment programs at the local community colleges. 

    • The courses and tutors do not replace the parent as the primary teacher.

      • Each student is expected to complete the homework outside class time and be prepared to participate in class.

      • Parents must follow up to ensure the student completes the required homework.​

  • How Our Program Partners with Homeschooling Families:

    • Level Up is for families who have homeschooled for at least one school year.

      • It is not a good fit for families who simply want to turn over responsibility of overseeing their student’s progress to someone else, nor for families that simply want to check the courses off their list. We require students to work hard and be monitored closely by their parents.

    • Utilizing Level Up Tutorials as a supplement to the home school experience affords many benefits. Because we want the students to succeed, we promote good study skills within the classes.

      • By teaching them to be responsible for keeping up with the class assignments, we promote ownership of education by the student. Study skills are reinforced by the tutors. 

      • All students can benefit from the strategies of becoming more responsible and organized!

  • Expectations we have of our families:

    • Students, we ask you to...

      • ...respect the teacher and fellow students.

      • ...abide by church rules and respect church property.

      • ...wear modest, neat, and tasteful clothing (jeans are acceptable).

      • ...work hard and follow through with assignments.

    • Parents, in order to help us run smoothly, and for your student(s) to benefit from these classes, we ask you to help keep your students accountable to some requirements that we expect them to abide by:

      • The requirement for all students to take these courses seriously and do the homework required by the tutor. This includes being willing to do their best to fulfill the assignments given by the tutor and be prepared for class.

      • The requirement for respect for the tutor(s) they have classed with, their fellow students, and the church where we meet.​

    • Parents, we also require you to evaluate the class material for a worldview perspective from which the tutor may present and note that all payments for materials and fees need to be made promptly.​​​​

  • Further Details:

    • We do not take the place of the parent as the primary teacher.

      • ​It is required that parents are actively involved.

      • Since our courses meet on a limited basis, they require follow-up at home under the direction of the parent.

    • It is our desire to comply with the laws of North Carolina which now state that tutors are a source that homeschool parents may use.

      • To ensure parental involvement, parents will be asked to sign various forms indicating the monitoring of a quiz or test or verifying completion of homework supervised at home.

    • Many of our courses require communicating with the instructors, so it is necessary for the students to have access to the internet.

      • Some courses also use an online quiz service for testing, so it is important that this process is not hindered.

      • Libraries have internet service if it is not available at home.

    • If at any time a teen is continually disobedient or fails to do the assignments required by the tutors and they feel it is not beneficial for the student to remain in the class, the Level Up Board reserves the right to ask a student to discontinue the Tutorial program without refund.

To ensure agreement to these terms, we ask the parent and student read and sign our requirements on the registration page.
