At Tomball Classes, the teachers consider their classes to be a ministry and are committed to meet each student's educational needs as best we can. We are keenly aware that we are not a school, only a support arm, helping each family reach the goals set by parents for their own children.
Since our classes meet only once per week, teachers rely heavily on daily parental supervision of the student's work at home. We expect students to work diligently to complete weekly assignments and be prepared when they come to class in order for the class time to be productive for all students. An unprepared student stifles not only his own progress, but also the effectiveness of class time for all other students.
Full Year Commitment
We also ask that parents share the same full year commitment as the teachers, with the understanding that each teacher will establish his or her own drop policy to deal with emergency situations, such as illness or an unexpected move from the area. In August, each teacher may make a decision to go forward with some small classes, based on this full year commitment. Additionally, in any class that is full, each student has taken a seat that might have gone to another student. In light of these considerations, please consider your enrollment a full year commitment, whether or not your child completes the full year of classes. Expect to pay the full year's tuition, unless you have made emergency arrangements with the teacher.
Family Registration Fee
To defray rising costs without steep tuition increases, each family will make a single $50 registration payment annually, payable to Tomball Classes for Homeschoolers. This payment should be sent to Suzanne Young, 2495 Sawdust Road #2131, The Woodlands, TX 77380. The registration fee is non-refundable after June 1 and must be paid before students attend any classes. The registration fee increases to $65 after September 1.
Supervised Study Hall / Fellowship Hall
For your convenience and your child's safety a free study hall is provided in the gym. From 8:00-12:30 students must study quietly. They may talk quietly from 12:30-4:30. This service is provided for students only. Students who will be on campus before, after, or between classes must be in study/fellowship hall. They may not wander around the facilities. Students will sign-in when they arrive at Tomball Classes and sign-out when they leave . A late fee will be charged to parents if their students are not picked up by 4:30.
We look forward to another great school year.
