We highly recommend parents enroll early or no later than when local schools in your area begin the school year.
5. Curriculum List:
Parents are required to submit the Curriculum Report Form within 30 days of enrollment. It will list the curriculum being used by the student in each of his or her subjects (where applicable).
Aaron Academy recommends that parents consider the many excellent Christian resources available for home educators. Still, it's the parents' decision what materials the students use for their academic subjects.
6. Semester Reports:
Parents will be required to maintain attendance and grades and submit this information at the end of each semester.
The first semester covers any student work completed from July through December of the school year. The second semester covers the work done from January through June.
If a student transfers out during the middle of the semester, these reports must be submitted immediately to allow our office to update the student's file.
7. Testing:
Achievement testing for students in Kinder through 8th grade is NOT required. We do suggest that parents consider testing since it's a great tool to appraise your student's levels in several subjects.
High School Testing Policy: In order for senior students to be eligible for high school graduation, one of the following testing requirements must be satisfied:

(A) For students NOT planning to attend college: One Stanford Achievement Test or One Iowa Test (with a minimum Stanine score of 4, taken in the 9th, 10th, 11th, or 12th grade).

9. Expulsions:

12. Notice:
Aaron Academy will not discriminate against or exclude any family from enrolling, or continuing to be enrolled with the school, based on race, color, nationality, or ethnic origin.
Since Aaron Academy is a religious organization, the Board of Directors reserves the right to discriminate in areas of religious beliefs and affiliations. Consequently, the school is not obligated to accept those who may not meet admission requirements.
Further, we believe in the Biblical fundamentals of family, marriage, education, community, ministry, and evangelism.
