What is your cancellation/refund policy?
Registration is considered a contract with ACES Homeschool Groups to exchange tuition for educational services for a period of one academic year (September-May). Parents who choose to leave the program prior to the end of the academic year, will be responsible for the remainder of the unpaid yearly tuition. This is done to protect our program, families and teachers. While withdrawals may be inevitable, we must continue to pay our teachers to offer the high quality experience that families expect. Withdrawals can lead to class cancellations which affects families who rely on classes to fulfill their curriculum needs for the academic year.
If ACES Homeschool Groups determines that we are unable to meet the needs of your child, your registration fee will be refunded and the contract between the family and ACES will be dissolved.
If a classes are canceled due to a teacher illness, a make-up class will be scheduled. Weather cancellations will not be made-up.
Tutoring sessions that are cancelled with less than 12 hours notice will be billed for the hour.
How much tutoring does my child need?
After the initial evaluation, we will create a plan that will best meet the needs of your child and family. Some students attend once/week, while others attend two or more times/week. The length of time is variable as well depending on academic progress and increased confidence.
What do families say about the program?

What does a typical day look like?
Daily schedules will vary depending on the age level of the group. Typically, our mornings include writing, history/social studies, science, presentations/group work and snack. We break for lunch and recess midday. Our afternoon is designated for our book club and documentary discussions as well as our fine arts studies
How intense is the program?
That really depends on you as the primary teacher of your child. You will have an overview of our year's themes, book selections, documentaries and field trips. Students are expected to read the book selection and view the documentary for each month in order to be prepared to fully participate in the discussions. Some presentations or projects will require preparation at home prior to class. But a significant amount of work will take place in class. It is up to you to decide if the program will supplement your existing curriculum or become the framework for your studies for the year.
Where can I find out about upcoming events?
All public events will be posted on our main Facebook page. If your child is enrolled in one of the ACES Homeschool Groups or you have purchased a membership for the year, member-only events will be visible on the private Facebook page.
How can an educational advocate help my family?
Whether you are new to the world of IEP meetings or you've spend many years working to ensure your child has all of the resources he or she needs to be successful, an educational advocate can help. Offering support during meetings, helping to translate the educational jargon, providing resources and referrals to outside providers and services are just a few of the many ways an educational advocate can benefit a family with a child with special needs.
