How do I sign up for classes?
Step #1. Sign Up for a Free Account on A-T.life
(Take a few minutes to check things out and make sure you are in the right place.)
Step #2. Upgrade to a Family Membership on A-T.life.
(Membership is required to participate in discussions, join live classes and/or enroll students in A-TeC. Follow the instructions, after creating a free account and validating your email.)
Step #3. Enroll your students in A-TeC Academy.
(After your membership upgrade, our staff will send you information on your next steps. Have more questions? Visit the A-T Member Services website.)
Why do I need a membership?
You don’t need a membership to explore A-T.life and follow interesting people, businesses or organizations. You only need a membership if you would like to join in on a discussion, post content or enroll students into our program. A Family Membership is required in order to enroll students in the academy. We use membership to monitor and manage who uses Assemble-Together. This way we can keep A-T safe for kids and fun for the entire family.
Tuition and Pricing
What is the cost for a family?
A Family Membership is $16/mo. Access to our self-paced/parent-led curriculum is only $4.60/mo per student. Access to the Music Dept. is an additional $1/mo per student.
Live class fees vary from free, up to $60/student every six week term (there are six terms per school year). We also offer live tutoring in 30 minute blocks (fees vary) for any specific assistance your student may require.
We offer an “A la carte” program that allows you to mix-and-match our curriculum with any others that you choose and still allows you track all of your student’s work product and grades in our system for easy Reporting and Transcript creation.
Do you Offer Grade Level Assessment Testing?
Yes. We have access to free online testing for Math, Science and Reading. We can then assist you in selecting the best place to start your student’s learning in our program.
Allow us to first answer the question, “Why Hexamesters?”
As long-time homeschoolers, we wanted to create a consistent schedule that allowed us to easily observe the major Holy Days without concern for any school schedule interference. Six-week blocks worked out perfectly. To meet state requirements of 180 days of school, a total of six, 6-week terms are required.
If a school year is divided in half, you get two semesters. Divided in thirds, yields three trimesters. Divided into 6 equal segments… enter stage left, the “Hexamester”! As a side-note, occasionally we still refer to semesters in our terminology; which, equal 3 hexamesters.
