Steps to Enrollment
We offer a wide range of courses and programs to meet the individual needs of our community. Courses can be found through Scholé Academy, dual enrollment with the University of St. Katherine, the Scholé Academy Tutoring Center, and the St. Raphael School.
Our goal at Scholé Academy is to help match prepared students for new course challenges and provide them the best opportunity for success. To help families, instructors, and administrators in this endeavor, Scholé Academy administers placement assessments in order to get to know each student and find the best learning environment for him or her, as we seek to educate our students well and wisely.
Explore our courses!
First, read the available course descriptions, noting prerequisites, target grades, and course objectives. If you think your student is prepared for the course, go ahead and register. After registration, a placement assessment may be provided to students, depending on the course and the student’s previous enrollment with Scholé Academy. Registration is finalized when the student’s placement assessment has been returned by the course instructor with placement confirmation.
Read the Student-Parent Handbook.
Please take careful note of our teaching philosophy, our technology requirements, our school policies, the parent agreement, and the distinctions between our grade levels.
Double-check the course section dates and times.
Make sure they don’t conflict with other activities in your schedule or other courses you are purchasing. Our system will not catch double-bookings!
You’re ready to add course selections to your cart!
Our Assistant to the Principal will be in touch with you after your enrollment to help you with next steps, including any placement evaluations that may be required for your course selections.
This registration will be finalized when the student’s placement assessment has been returned by the course instructor with placement confirmation.
We do not have any local Christian classical schools and I love that we have the opportunity to attend one of the best from our own home. Having a little less on my plate allows me to have some space to care for my own soul, which is necessary in the marathon of homeschooling.Scholé Academy Parent
Scholé Academy has been life-changing for our homeschool. Thank you for introducing my family to the idea of scholé, or restful learning. It is wonderful to learn from a place of rest and peace and joy.Scholé Academy Parent
Through its curricula and unique approach, Scholé Academy has successfully achieved harmony between vigorous academics and restful contemplation. Poignant conversation and written work challenge students in welcoming environments that encourage authentic learning. Scholé’s wide variety of classes, excellent leadership, and faithful adherence to its philosophy make it a top choice for home educators.Mrs. Shaltanis
The [Writing & Rhetoric] program inspires excellence in speaking, writing, and reading through the practice of elocution, repetition, imitation, and slow reading each week. The community atmosphere of the class keeps learning fresh!Mrs. Schinstock
