ONLINE ACADEMY PLUS (coming in Sept 2021): Teacher-supervised learning with live online

academic classes, for Kinder to Grade 10 students.

with center support (activities are currently done

online due to COVID-19), for Kinder to Grade 12.

Program fee: 6,000AED per learner.

Tech AOP Specialized Developmental Services - THE LEARNING CURVE ONLINE: Specialized

homeschooling with online support, for Grades 3 to 12 students. Program fee: 4,500AED per learner.

Specialized developmental services are available for exceptional or challenged learners. These are auxiliary to the Touch and Tech AOP programs.

(14)

F R E Q U E N T L Y A S K E D Q U E S T I O N S

Your program of choice will depend on factors like preferred curriculum, preferred amount of support, schedule, testing method, assessment type, etc. But

don't worry, you can take our program recommendation questionnaire to discover the best fit for your child’s

needs and your family’s lifestyle.

For students aged 2 and 3, HG's nursery program uses the Kidstarter Curious Curriculum, while Pre-K

students aged 4 may take Touch or Tech BJU. DepEd accreditation officially begins in Kinder, and the child must be 5 years old by June 1. For those who will be turning 5 between August 1 to October 31, students must take the Kinder Readiness Test first. For Grade 1, students need to be at least 6 years old.

It is certainly possible to work and homeschool your children. We recommend that you use a structured

program (Online Academy, Online Academy Plus, or Tech BJU) that will allow you to be your child's learning

facilitator rather than the teacher if you are not able to dedicate the recommended 2-3 hours daily for teaching time. As a facilitator, you connect the child with the

learning tool and curriculum, and supervise and guide them.

The Tech BJU program is very helpful as it provides comprehensive video lessons by subject specialist

teachers. The Online Academy and Online Academy Plus programs provide additional assistance to facilitators

through Class Advisors who monitor progress, provide daily lesson schedules, and conduct weekly homeroom classes. Additionally, Online Academy Plus includes daily live online academic classes wherein the teachers will be in charge of your child's grading.

How do I know which

program to choose?

How early can I start homeschooling?

(15)

F R E Q U E N T L Y A S K E D Q U E S T I O N S

We offer two forms of accreditation, US and Philippine

accreditation. The Philippine accreditation is provided by our partner school, The Master's Academy, which we have been partnered with since we pioneered homeschooling in the Philippines more than 20 years ago. The US accreditation is provided by our partner school, Wellspring Christian Family Schools based in Maryland U.S.A., a Tier 1 NCAA-accredited school, and is particularly beneficial for those who are

planning to enroll their child in a college abroad or are expats.

In choosing the accreditation, you must factor in future plans. Both types of accreditation are recognized in the Philippines and abroad. We have had graduates accepted into top Philippine universities such as UP, Ateneo, and De La Salle, as well as international universities such as Brown, NYU, Stanford, and University of Georgia. Under the US

accreditation, students will not be required to study Filipino language or Araling Panlipunan, but rather, US History and a foreign language. By default, all our programs include

Philippine accreditation in the fees; the US option is available at an additional fee.

Are you DepEd-accredited?

Which accreditation should

I choose: Philippine or US?

If you choose the Online Academy, Tech BJU, or Tech AOP

programs, these follow curriculum packages which include the books and materials you will need for the school year. The

package will be purchased together with enrollment and books, shall be provided within 14 days* of enrollment. For the Touch

program, you will be provided a book list upon enrollment, which contains our recommended books as well as a list of

optional/alternative books you may purchase, including

online/digital platforms such as BJU DLO and AOP Ignitia. You may also schedule a curriculum consultation with a learning advisor who can guide you in making your choice.

How do I choose the curriculum, books,

and materials appropriate for my child?

(16)

F R E Q U E N T L Y A S K E D Q U E S T I O N S

Tech provides structure for the student, allowing for independent learning through the use of our learning platforms. These contain comprehensive video lessons, teacher guides, activity sheets, and online or printed materials. The daily lessons and full-year coverage is preset and planned out for the parent and student to easily follow. Parents’ training on the platform and tools are provided along with a support advisor in case you

get stuck. Grading and monitoring of students are based on quizzes for each unit and quarterly online exams.

The primary difference between Tech and Touch is that the Touch program provides you with a seasoned

homeschool advisor to support and guide you through your journey, as well as an open curriculum allowing you to pick and choose your child's books or select

from our recommended bundles. Touch students have the benefit of doing Portfolio Reviews, which serve as presentations of all their learnings every quarter.

What is the difference

between Tech and Touch?

Tech BJU is a blended curriculum provided by BJU Press, and features a blend of online comprehensive video lessons (on-demand) by expert teachers and

materials, as well as printed books and worktext books for the student that come with the curriculum bundle. Tech BJU is for Pre-K to Grade 10 students.

Tech AOP, open to Grades 3 to 12, is a fully online curriculum provided by Alpha Omega Publications. This means all of the lessons and materials will be available online. Tech AOP is ideal for visual and independent learners who may not need

comprehensive video lessons but would benefit from the interactive text-based curriculum. This online

curriculum is ideal for high schoolers as it includes an array of electives and test prep courses (SAT, GED, etc.) Both programs provide essential academic support

from an advisor, which includes grading guidance, online platform navigation, and exams.

(17)

F R E Q U E N T L Y A S K E D Q U E S T I O N S

The main difference is that Online Academy has Class Advisors. They are in charge of the weekly homeroom classes and help parents monitor their child's weekly progress. Both programs use BJU DLO as their

curriculum, which features recorded videos of lessons delivered to your child on-demand by expert teachers.

What’s the difference between

Tech BJU and Online Academy?

Online Academy Plus has all the inclusions of Online Academy, but moreover, it features teacher-supervised learning and daily live online academic classes (teachers will be in charge of your child's grading). The

advisor-student ratio of Online Academy Plus is 1:25, while in Online Academy, it is 1:40.

What’s the difference between

Online Academy and

Online Academy Plus?

Enrollment for families happens every March, June, September, and December (US accreditation only). Thus, interested families have the advantage of

starting homeschooling earlier or later than June. The school year should ideally be completed in 10 months, however, you have the flexibility to take the program up to 12 months. You may also extend up to a

maximum of 15 months (pro-rata fees apply).

Does enrollment follow the

conventional school calendar?

For school year 2021-2022, HG offers two (2) strands under the Philippine accreditation: GAS - General Academic Strand and ABM - Accountancy,

Business, and Management. These strands are only available under the Touch Program.

Grades 11 and 12 US accreditation are available under Touch and Tech AOP with multiple elective options.

What other fees need to be settled

on top of the program fee?

All our programs are available under the following payment scheme options: one time payment, two-monthly installment, four-two-monthly installment, and quarterly installment.

Are installment plans available?

Yes, you may hire a tutor to assist with homeschooling. The tutor may undergo the included training programs

together with the parent.

HG also offers Online Group Tutorials in Math, Science,

English, Filipino, and Social Studies for Grades 3 to 10 PH & US and Grades 11 & 12 US students through the help of

professional teachers. Good for one academic year (or 10 months), the tutorial will happen in a group setting

wherein your child will join other students of the same grade level. There is a set mini-lesson for 15 minutes, but the majority of the time (35 minutes) is given for students to ask questions via chat while the teacher will discuss these questions or finish with a check up game or activity if there are no questions.
