Families that pre-register in March will have the opportunity to select classes before class selection is open to new families.  Payment of a primary deposit ($50 per class) will be required to select your classes. Additional payment dates will be June 15th and August 1st. Failure to make summer payments will remove students from classes. No refunds will be given for students who miss a scheduled payment.

The novel coronavirus, COVID-19, has been declared a worldwide pandemic by the World Health Organization. COVID-19 is extremely contagious and is believed to spread mainly from person-to-person contact. As a result, federal, state, and local governments and federal and state health agencies recommend social distancing and have, in many locations, prohibited the congregation of groups of people. Vanguard Homeschool Academy cannot guarantee that you or your child(ren) will not become infected with COVID-19. Further, attending Vanguard could increase your risk and your child(ren)?s risk of contracting COVID-19. By registering or attending, families acknowledge the contagious nature of COVID-19 and voluntarily assume the risk that their child(ren) and self may be exposed to or infected by COVID-19 by attending Vanguard or related events and that such exposure or infection may result in personal injury, illness, permanent disability, and death.


Financial Commitment  

Class fees range from $140-$250 for the 24 weeks.  See the class descriptions for fees for each class. Music classes and private lessons fees vary.  Some classes have additional fees. Please read the course description for each class to confirm the class fees that are required before registering. Please note that students registering for the full year are getting a discounted rate as fees do increase for students who start year long classes in January. Tuition for joining a class in January is NOT half the year price. Very few classes are available to start in January.

Private music lessons are $19 per half hour /$228 per 12 week semester. Private lessons and tutors are for the YEAR 24 weeks.

Please register students for classes with the intention to participate from August to May. If it is necessary to drop out of a class, you will be bound to satisfy the class tuition for the year. All fees are due at registration. Material fees are non-refundable or transferable. Students may not attend class unless all fees are paid and accounts are in good standing. We regret that refunds are not available if students withdraw from classes. In an attempt to keep our fees as low as possible we must set our yearly budget based on the fall commitment. We are unable to offer a drop/add date for students to receive refunds. Be sure to read class descriptions and requirements carefully. Ask questions about each class BEFORE you register. There are a few exceptions made to class selection but  if approved material fees cannot be transferred to another class therefore a switch of class (drop/add) usually will require an additional $40-$60 for materials towards the new class.

All fees are non-refundable.  All fees are due to register for a class.

Family Registration Fee: Per family (not per student) Discounts are given the earlier families register. Family Registration fees are non refundable. If a family decides not to register or attend classes the family registration fee will not be refunded.

It is intended at all fees should be paid when your classes are selected

Do not register for classes or make online class selection until you are ready to commit to the class. Students that drop a class or withdraw are still responsible for the entire year's tuition. Refunds will not be given for choosing to drop a class.

All fees are due when classes are selected.

In the event a check is returned unpaid due to insufficient funds your check will be electronically redeposited for the face amount of the check. Recovery fess will be assessed for all returned checks by Double Check. Additional fees will be applied by the banks involved and a $45 fee will be added to your Vanguard account for any returned checks or stop payment checks. Stop payment checks will be treated as bounced or insufficient funds. Questions regarding returned checks can be directed directly to our check recovery service, Double Check.

Submission of registration fee grants my child permission to participate in VHA classes and activities. I release and discharge VHA and the host church and their agents from and against all claims and losses of any type arising from my child's participation in VHA activities. By participating in VHA classes or activities parents give permission for student to receive emergency medical care if needed. Please print and complete a FAMILY REGISTRATION and PARENT RELEASE form and mail with your payment. Participation in classes assumes agreement to all policies including medical release.

COVID-19 virus has a long incubation period during which carriers of the virus may not show symptoms and still be highly contagious. It is impossible to determine who has it and who does not. By registering or attending, I acknowledge the contagious nature of COVID-19 and voluntarily assume the risk that my child(ren) and I may be exposed to or infected by COVID-19 by attending Vanguard or related events and that such exposure or infection may result in personal injury, illness, permanent disability, and death. I understand that the risk of becoming exposed to or infected by COVID-19 at Vanguard may result from the actions, omissions, or negligence of myself and others, including, but not limited to, Vanguard leaders, volunteers, teachers, guests, Pleasant Grove Baptist Church and program participants and their families.
