    If my child is taking classes at NGA, what is my role in his or her education?
    According to the state of Georgia it is the homeschooling parent’s responsibility to take full ownership of their child’s education. NGA provides supportive services in the core subject areas (math, science, history, language arts/English and Spanish) to assist parents to meet state requirements and college preparatory expectations. It’s has been our experience that homeschooling families need more assistance in the meeting the standards in the core subject areas, thus our focus.

    Do I have to teach a class?
    No. parents of middle and high school students have the opportunity of participating in our drop off option and paying per class instead of teaching. Participating families must assist or teach classes & hold one other job (i.e. hall monitor, lunch duty, etc) to qualify for the lower tuition.

    Do I need a degree to teach?
    No. We require that you have a love for learning, a love for children, a strong work ethic, and a willingness to collaborate with veteran teachers and administration.
