TPS provides fully interactive classrooms to students worldwide, even in remote locations with limited connectivity. Our live classes feature quality audio, chat, interactive presentations and a shared whiteboard for all participants. Students can interactively present content from their computer as well. Classes are recorded to allow for occasional missed class make-up.
TPS teachers provide frequent timely individual feedback for evaluation and improvement. Teachers are also available on a reasonable basis to provide help outside of class by email, office hours, group meeting, or an occasional individual meeting.
Students view class messages, track assignments, submit work, and view grades and feedback through an interface that allows them to manage all their courses in one place. Parents have a single interface to oversee assignments, grades and feedback for all their students and courses.
Upon completion of a course, all records remain accessible indefinitely, and parents can print homeschool grade reports, obtain signed grade reports or request accredited transcripts.
Please see our Register and Enroll information.
Immediately after you enroll, you will receive two automated emails for each course. One email discusses placement and Teacher Approval for the course. Please carefully follow any guidance to submit placement information, tests, essays or other work specified.
Teacher Approval materials and placement tests are due within one week of enrolling in a course (no extensions, sorry!). After you have Teacher Approval for a class, make your first payment by eCheck (preferred) or credit card.
You pay only after you are holding a confirmed approved seat in the class you want.
Initial payment is due after you hold a confirmed approved seat in a class you want. Subsequent payment due dates depend on the start date (full year, summer, fall, spring) of each class. Special payment plans are also available. More information on tuition payment schedules...
TPS classes can be taken on Windows, Mac and Chromebook computers (not tablets, yet). 1 Mbps or higher stable internet is recommended (slower speeds work but reduce the quality of the class, and higher speeds improve the class experience). We support the Chrome and Firefox browsers (others generally work but we don't support them). More information on TPS technical requirements...
We provide free academic counseling by phone or skype for families seeking to build their academic plan using TPS courses. Families seeking a TPS Diploma must meet with our Academic Adviser when they enroll each year. Please contact TPS Support to make an appointment.
