We are so excited! The ballots have been counted and the results are in. Scholars Online received awards in seven categories in Practical Homeschooling's reader and user determined iLearn Awards program:
Mary Pride's own children were among Bruce and Christe McMenomy's first students. She thanks Scholars Online for the part we played in helping them achieve academic and personal success.
It's hard to believe that July is already upon us. Open enrollment for academic year courses continues through 1 September 2017, and full tuition and all fees are due by the start of classes on 5 September 2017, or your student may not be admitted to class. This applies even if you are using the installment option, unless you make arrangements with the accounts manager. While we may accept enrollments and payments after that date for some courses (pending teacher approval), any delays in processing account information could prevent students from being admitted to chat sessions—so please complete registration and enrollment as soon as possible!
Each new student with a paid membership will receive notification of his or her temporary password at the student's registered email address. Please make sure that these notices are not being filtered to junk mail or spam folders.
We have upgraded the Scholars Online Moodle to the latest version, Moodle 3.3, released in May 2017. We are working on videos and tutorials to help teachers, students, and parents learn to use the new release more effectively, so watch this space!
We've also done a major review and update of the underlying code for the rest of the Scholars Online site to improve security and compliance with the latest PHP software release. Please let the webmistress know if you run into unexpected website behavior!
Scholars Online receives donations for scholarships directly, and dedicates all money received from its Bookstore Amazon Associates affiliation to the Scholarship fund. Scholarships are granted on a case-by-case basis for tuition assistance when students would otherwise be unable to take courses due to job loss, medical expenses, or other family emergencies. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to request information about scholarship availability for the 2015 Summer and Academic Year Courses.
Direct contributions to our scholarship fund are tax-exempt, as Scholars Online is a 501(c)(3) organization. To make a donation by check or online, see our Scholarship page. You may also donate by making purchases from Amazon.com through the Scholars Online Bookstore site or by designating Scholars Online as your charity of choice at http://smile.amazon.com.
