Policies & Procedures
updated August 14, 2023

Level Up Educational Academy Homeschooling aims to partner with families to train students to be disciples of Christ through their academic endeavors.

Our Mission:

“Providing academic excellence in a safe Christian environment while promoting a family-style atmosphere by encouraging unity within the community of like-minded families. It is the goal of Level Up Homeschool Programs to encourage social fellowship and support while inspiring our youth to grow mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.”

Biblical foundation: 

  • Our mission entails the cultivation of biblical beliefs and submission to Scripture’s depiction of Christ-like behavior and character. That men and women are made in the image of God; that God created mankind as a differentiated and complementary pair, male and female; that as a God of order and design, God opposes the confusion of man as woman and woman as man; that individuals should live in accordance with their biological sex. As a Christian program acting as a ministry of the Bible, we follow our Vision Statement to, "Continue to uphold godly character through Biblical foundations and inspire our children to become Christ-honoring future leaders."

We hope your student(s) will benefit academically and socially from Level Up Tutorials. To help the Tutorials program operate smoothly and for the student to benefit from these classes, we ask the following:


Students are expected to…

  • …be respectful toward tutors, fellow students, volunteers & SOJ Staff.

  • …abide by church rules, respect the church property & the property or possessions of others. Vandalism is not tolerated.

  • …attend Study Hall in the designated areas when on campus & not in class.

  • …dress according to the dress code: blouses, knit shirts, button-down shirts (long enough that they could be tucked in), pants, modest shorts, skirts. T-shirts are fine, however, they should not contain vulgar or offensive sayings (maintain Biblical standards). Modest, neat & tasteful appearance, please.

  • …be willing to do your best to attend all classes, fulfill the assignments given by the tutor, prepare for class & participate in class discussions.

  • …check email accounts frequently for those tutors who stay in contact via email.

Parents are expected to…

  • …make payments for registration & classes on time; pay for all books & supplies requested by the tutor.

  • …remember that YOU (the parents) are your student’s primary educators for your children. The instruction offered through the Tutorials program is only intended to partner with you in supplementing the work done through the curriculum at home.

  • …support the efforts of the tutor to provide instruction to the student. The Tutorials program is a collaborative effort between parents & tutors; therefore, parents MUST remain engaged with the educational process.
