Family Administration Plan enrollments are for families who want to be totally independent, but are concerned that the curriculum materials selected (and the subjects being studied) will provide a solid Christian education and prepare their children for college and beyond.
Under this plan, you choose the courses (or opt to have us select them) from a variety of proven and trusted publishers. We then design your curriculum using standardized tests results, academic transcripts from previous schools (if applicable), and any comments and additional information you provide. We ship to you the entire grade level's worth of curriculum (all textbooks, keys, tests, etc.) and even offer curriculum adjustments after the books have been shipped, if needed. Once you have your curriculum, you administer your school as you desire. You don't submit any work to us; you are completely independent.
For more information on our Family Administration Plan enrollment, go to Family Plan on our homeschool academy website. If you desire to have grading and record-keeping services included with your curriculum, see our CLASS Plan enrollment.
Filling Out the Enrollment Application
Many of the fields above are self-explanatory, but here are a few notes on some that might be confusing. If something doesn't make sense, or if you have additional questions, please call us toll free at 800-348-0899, press 1. Remember, you are in the process of completing an enrollment—not simply placing an order.
STEP 1 – Parent-Legal Guardian Information
The parent-legal guardian information identifies who is officially enrolling the student (this can differ from who is paying the tuition or receiving the shipment of curriculum). The legal guardian and spouse listed here are the only people authorized to obtain information about and make changes to the student's curriculum. (If additional names need to be added, use our Authorization Form.)
Family ID: If you have ever enrolled any student in our program, then you will have a family identification number. If you are new to our school, then leave this blank.
Parent-Legal Guardian: This is the head-of-household name (title, first, last) who is officially enrolling the student (this can be different from the person purchasing and/or receiving the box of course materials). Be sure to include both first and last name.
Spouse: This is the head-of-household spouse's name (title, first, last) who is officially enrolling the student. Be sure both first and last name are included.
Phone # and Email: These, in addition to a mailing address, are the official contact points between our school and the parent-legal guardian.
STEP 1a – Official Address
Type in the address to where you want all official correspondence and records sent. This will become your official address on file.
Note: You will be required to enter a billing address during checkout. If that address is the same as your parent-legal guardian mailing address, you may leave this step blank. If no information is provided in this section, we will assume your billing address is your official address and use it for your enrollment.
STEP 2 – Student Information
The student name you provide will become the official name that appears on all report cards, transcripts, and ultimately, the diploma. Be sure to avoid using nicknames and the like.
Student Name: This is the official name we will enter into our records and should be typed (first, last) as you would like it to appear on all official documents.
Student ID: Your student will only have a student identification number if enrolled with us sometime in the past. If this student is new to our school, then leave this blank.
Was Enrolled in CLASS Last Grade Level: If your student was enrolled in our school (either CLASS Plan or Family Plan) for the grade level immediately preceding this one, then choose "Yes." Otherwise, select "No."
STEP 3 – Standardized Testing Information
CLASS offers two different standardized achievement/placement tests—The California Achievement Test (CAT) [paper and online versions, starting at grade 2] and the TestPoint Placement Test—which we use primarily for determining the best curriculum. In most cases, we find the achievement test to be be a better fit for students enrolling into our school. For more information, see achievement test versus placement test.
Students enrolling in grades 2-12 who were not enrolled with us for the immediately preceding grade level are required to be tested prior to curriculum development. Re-enrolling students may choose to be pre-tested, but are not required to do so. If you do not want pre-testing, a paper California Achievement Test (unless you opt for the online version) will be included with your curriculum materials, to be completed at your convenience. The TestPoint Placement Test cannot be used for re-enrolling students.
Students entering grades K-1 who wish to be tested must use the TestPoint Placement Test; the CAT is not available for these grade levels.
Note: If you choose to take an online standardized test, it will take 1–2 business days before the test can be administered. After your enrollment is processed, you will be notified via email with website information about taking the test.
If your student recently used Christian Liberty's Independent Testing Service, you may use that test for the enrollment (and qualify for a refund of the cost of that test) if:
An achievement/placement test is required for this enrollment (i.e., the student was not enrolled with us for the grade level immediately preceding this one);
The test completed was taken within the last six months;
The test completed was for the grade level in which your student is currently enrolling.
If your student recently completed a different achievement test and you wish to use it with this enrollment, see Standardized Testing on our CLASS Homeschools website.
Pre-Test: If you would like your re-enrolling student pre-tested prior to curriculum development, then choose "Yes." We will send you the California Achievement Test you selected in "Testing" (TestPoint cannot be used for re-enrollments). Your enrollment will be held until after the test has been completed and returned.
New students and those not enrolled with us for the immediately preceding grade level are automatically pre-tested prior to curriculum development.
STEP 4 – Course Selection
Within each subject is a list of courses available for this grade level. You may choose one or more courses for your student or opt to have us select the best courses for you. If you do not know which course to select, choose the "I want CLASS to choose my course" option. If there is only one course option for a required subject, that course has already been pre-selected.
For a general description and book preview of the courses listed, see the table below. Note: Book preview is not available for some courses.
Each course option listed in a drop-down menu consists some or all of the following information:
subject – appears if the general subject heading can be broken down into sub-headings (e.g., biology and chemistry are sub-headings of science); generally only seen at the high school level
title – the title of the primary textbook, which is usually identical to the course name
publisher and edition – If book credit is available (see below) for an item in the course, the option to receive some financial credit is provided. This information is included to ensure that the materials you have match the course we assign.
academic credit (high school only) – indicates the amount of academic credit that will be awarded upon successful completion of the course
send me all / I already have… – identifies whether we need to send all materials for the course or if you already have some; for each course name, the top option listed is "send everything"
add / deduct – the amount added or deducted from your base tuition; add includes fees associated with some not-required-for-the-diploma electives, whereas deduct occurs from book credit
NOTE: We reserve the right to modify your course choices if achievement/placement test scores, previous school transcripts, and/or other comments indicate they will be inappropriate. If this occurs, you may appeal the decision by contacting us. Curriculum adjustments can be made, even after the materials have been shipped.
Book Credit: We offer financial credit for select textbooks and teacher's manuals if you already have them and don't need us to send another copy. If an item qualifies for book credit, you can request that we not send it to you when you choose that course (the book credit will be automatically deducted from your tuition). Book credit options are found in the course selection drop-down menus, and have the "I already have…" text listed next to the course. If you need all items, then choose the version of the course that indicates this. Be sure to check the edition listed to ensure your copy matches our course.
We do not award book credit for Christian Liberty Press publications, nor do we award book credit for the second half of a two-year course.

STEP 5 – Additional Information
Parent-Teacher Support: Included with the curriculum is the book How to Successfully Teach Reading, which provides practical guidance for instructors to take their students to a higher level of fluency and comprehension.
Lesson Planner: We provide one lesson planner per family for your school year, which is independent of the number of students you are enrolling. If you need additional copies (or if you would like a PDF version), you can add them to this enrollment as a separate purchase.
Comments and Requests: In order for us to better develop your student's curriculum, we ask that you also include information about his/her strengths and weaknesses, general academic background, and anything else you believe might be helpful. If the information is too extensive to include in this text box, contact us.
If you have any questions about this application or the process itself, please contact us.
If for some reason you need to cancel this enrollment, partial refunds are available up to 30 days after the main curriculum ship date (60 days for foreign shipments). For full details, see our cancellation policy.
