Preparing the Next
Generation of Daniels

You are responsible for all of the information below. Read Carefully!

 

Getting Started

1.) Choose the program that best fits your needs.

Homeschooling Program

This is traditional, do-it-yourself homeschooling. Parents register each child at the beginning of each year and pay the required fees. They purchase or create the curriculum they wish to use. They teach their children at least 180 days in the school year. The staff of D1A creates official transcripts using the grades reported by the parent at the end of each semester. Learn More!

 

Correspondence Program

Sometimes homeschool parents would like what this program offers:  curriculum decided by an experienced teacher, more accountability and structure, help with calculating grades, the experience for the student of answering to someone other than a parent. This program gives parents the comfort of a strong educational base with a Christian emphasis and gives students an easy-to-use workbook approach that can be carried anywhere.   Learn More!

 

Online Program

Reignite the passion of learning with the newest learning management system from Alpha Omega Publications. Built exclusively for Christian schools, this comprehensive curriculum for students in grades 3 through 12 includes lessons in five core subject areas: Bible, language arts, math, science, and history and geography, with a diverse list of electives also available. Ignitia courses are not only rigorous and interactive, but provide instruction based on a Christian worldview, encouraging students to consider challenging questions from a biblical perspective.  Learn More!

 

2.) Complete the registration packet and gather all required papers.

Download the registration packet here. Please use a different registration form for each child. You may submit the completed registration by mail, fax or bring it into the school. Include the correct amount of fees and any other papers required or the registration will be rejected.

Birth certificate

  • An official copy must be submitted with registration for any student new to D1A.

Parent’s proof of high school education or higher (For Homeschooling Program only)

  • If this is the first child you are registering with D1A, you must submit a copy of a parent’s high school diploma or transcript showing graduation date, or any proof of schooling after high school such as a college transcript. Call the school if you have questions about this.

Proof of guardianship
If someone other than the student’s parents (i.e. grandparents, friend, other family member) is enrolling the student, you must submit copies of official documents proving guardianship of the student.

Unofficial copy of high school transcript for students in grades 9-12 who are registering on the Satellite or Correspondence Programs

  • This will help us to be able to start your student more quickly on the new materials. Without it we will have to wait until their former school sends us records.

5.) Withdraw your student from former school.

In addition to registering with Daniel 1, officially withdraw them from any previous schools. Go to the school and find out what you need to do or call them and ask.  (Not necessary if switching schools during the summer break.)

6.) Begin teaching your student at home.

On the Homeschooling program you will need to obtain school materials to use. You can purchase them across the internet, from individuals, from curriculum fairs and from retail stores. On the Correspondence program you will be receiving your curriculum from Daniel 1 along with a schedule to follow.  On the Online program you will receive instructions on how to access Daniel 1’s Ignitia website.

Requirements

Yearly Enrollment

Enrollment is good only for the current school year. Students must be re-enrolled each school year.

School Year

The school year starts on July 1st and ends on June 30th of the following year. Enrollment is open year-round. Transfers are accepted throughout the school year. Most students enroll for the new school year during July and August.

Start Date

The student’s enrollment at Daniel 1 Academy begins on the date he/she registers for that school year. (Example: Student starts home schooling in August, but does not register until sometime in November. The school days between August and November will not be counted as school days at Daniel 1 Academy.)

Attendance

Daniel 1 Academy requires a minimum of 180 days but we do not require an attendance report. Parents are to be responsible for making sure their student meets this requirement.

Grade Reports

Parents of students on the Homeschool Program are required to submit a grade report for each semester. First semester reports are due January 30th and second semester reports are due June 30th. If a student withdraws from D1A during a semester, the parent must submit the grade report at time of withdrawal.

Achievement Testing

Daniel 1 no longer offers achievement testing.  Parents who want testing for their student should search the internet where there are many options from which to choose.  High school students will still have a testing requirement using the ACT test.

Withdrawing from Daniel 1 Academy

To withdraw from D1A during the school year, you must complete the Withdrawal Request Form and send it to Daniel 1 along with a grade report form for the time spent homeschooling. We will not release records to another school unless all accounts are settled and reports have been turned in. All fees are non-refundable.
