Home School Policy

Joshua Adventist Multi-grade School realizes that formal school is a choice and many parents choose to home school their children.  We support parents who are able to make this choice and seek ways to strengthen home school education for the good of the child.  Schools have resources and professional expertise which may be unavailable to a parent at home.  Parents often search for outside programs to round their child’s education.  The school is open to exploring ways in which we can support parents through individual classes, the music program, sports, and other aspects of student life.

Students wanting to participate in activities should register as a home school student and pay a registration fee.  This covers liability insurance and provides library and computer privileges.

Registration Fee:  $100

Monthly tuition fees are as follows:
