Frequently Asked Questions:
1. What days/times are classes?
All Classes are held on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. 5K and up meet from 8:30-3:00.
2. Can my child just take one class?
No, students must register for the 2 full day program. Exceptions are made for Juniors and Seniors enrolled in college courses.
3. Is this a co-op?
No, we charge tuition and function more like a school. Our teachers are paid staff and most have backgrounds and degrees in education. Parents are not required to work any class hours. We do, however, rely on parent volunteers to make our special events and fundraisers successful!
4. What subjects are taught at Arrows?
Check out our curriculum maps under Enrollment Forms and on are our grade specific pages under Academics to see what is taught in each grade.
5. What should I teach at home?
Your child will get assignments from their Arrows Academy teachers that you will need to complete with them at home each week. As a parent, you are still your child’s primary teacher!
Depending on the age of your child, you may be responsible for the planning and instruction of Math and Handwriting. See our Curriculum Map for details.
6. Is the curriculum included?
A buying guide is available on the website with the list of required materials. The required texts are the parents' responsibility to purchase.
7. Where do I send my paperwork?
4801 Wade Green Road, Acworth, GA 30102
8. How do I put my child on the wait-list?
If we confirm with you that your requested grade is on a wait list, you can submit online application and $100 non-refundable fee to be placed on the wait list in which you would have priority if a space opens in requested grade.
9. & 10. What are the payment options? Are there scholarships?
Tuition can be paid in full at the beginning of the year, or you can enroll in our tuition payment plan which allows for monthly payments.
In order to keep our tuition costs low, we are unable to offer scholarships. We do offer assistant shifts on campus to help with tuition.
11. Do I still have to register as a homeschooler?
Yes, you are still the primary teacher of your child!
According to GA law, you must file a declaration of intent to homeschool with the Georgia Department of Education. This form can be found at https://www.gadoe.org/Curriculum-Instruction-and-Assessment/Pages/Home-Study-DOI.aspx.
12. I’m nervous about covering Math in just 3 days/week. How do other families cover their Math curriculum?
Some families start Math on August 1, some double up lessons in December when we don’t have Arrows classes, and others do Math on either Tuesday or Wednesday afternoons when their kids get home. Look at your Math curriculum and a calendar, and start planning out lessons. Most homeschool curriculums fit well in this modified schedule. As the difficulty and time requirements increase in middle school and high school, we offer Math classes for our older students.
