We’re excited to guide you through your Parent/Teacher Account. Let’s get started!

Step 1: Set Up Your Parent Profile

Complete your Parent Profile to ensure accurate reporting, transcripts, certificates, and diplomas are made.

Step 2: Connect Your Students

Connect your student accounts to your Parent/Teacher Account for easy management. Follow these steps:

  • Follow the instructions on the page to connect your students.
  • Once linked, you’ll find your students’ information in the “MY STUDENTS” section on your account’s main screen.

Stay Informed with Reporting Information

Keep track of your students’ progress through reporting information. Our system displays data from July 1st to June 30th for each school year. This setup caters to both traditional and flexible homeschooling schedules. For year-round homeschooling, we recommend using July 1 to June 30 as your academic year timeframe. Regularly print or export this data to keep records up to date.

Plan with Our Calendar

Our academic calendar follows a standard school schedule, starting the day after Labor Day in the United States and ending in June. Access the Calendar to view curriculum dates, such as Day 1, Day 2, etc. If you follow our calendar, your students should use the “Today’s Assignments” page upon login. If you have your own schedule, direct them to the “Daily Assignments” page.

Understand Our Homeschool Policies

As a platform for independent homeschooling, you are the school. Familiarize yourself with your state’s homeschooling policies. View your states “Homeschool Laws” for guidance.

Managing Student Accounts

If you need to set up new student accounts or add more students, log out of your Parent/Teacher Account and sign up on our homepage. Use your parent email address for each student. Log into your students’ accounts to explore the curriculum and the Reporting section. Reach out to our team if you encounter issues or need help.
