Welcome to Elementary!!

 

We are so pleased that you have chosen our program to enhance your home school education!  Our elementary program is Kindergarten through Sixth grades. Classes meet every Thursday from 9:30- 2:30pm. 

 

We take a very "hands on" approach to learning.  We find our students retain so much more when they have engaged with the topic. The students at KDO Academy may take trails west in the Westward Expansion, relive the Middle Ages with knights, experience a Chinese parade, tour through the rainforests to find creatures there, explore outer space, or take a tour to all 50 states within the year!  Students get to play group games, do projects, give presentations, and interact in so many ways! Parents have the opportunity to use the classroom lesson at home and explore even more. A weekly newsletter is sent to parents in order to communicate the information they will need. Have your own curriculum? That’s ok too! This is a great enrichment tool for any homeschooling program. Great learning, great fun, all while making great friends!

 

On this site (see links above) you will find our policies and guidelines, medical form, safety form, and the calendar for the year. Please read through the policies and procedures of KDO to be sure you are in agreement. To attend class, the REGISTRATION, MEDICAL AND SAFETY forms must be submitted (see menu above) as well as payment received. 

 

Tuition, etc.: 

  • Tuition is $20/wk for the first child, $18/wk for the second, and $15/wk for any child thereafter.

  • A non-refundable registration fee is due:  $35/student K-4th grade; $45/student 5th-6th grade (the additional cost is for 5th & 6th grade access to JupiterEd.com; KDO's online school system which provides communication between student/parent and teacher)

  •  A $35 per/family cleaning fee; payable at registration

  •  Families may earn back the cleaning fee through credits. See 'Available Positions' page for more information.

  • Note:  The fee for bounced/returned checks is $25.

 

Communication:

  • K-4th grades use Shutterfly.com for their weekly review and communication.  The teacher will give you the set up information.

  • 5th/6th grades use JupiterEd.com to maintain class rosters, teacher communication, online quizzes and homework assignments (if applicable).  Upon completion of Registration, the Registrar will issue you a password for the student portal and the parent portal.  You may go in there to see your student’s enrollment. 

  • All correspondences will be sent home with the students.  If you need to give the teacher anything, all teachers and staff have a folder in the mail bins located in the front foyer.

 

Helpers: 

  • It takes many hands to make KDO Academy function! See Available Positions tab for more information on how you can help!

  • Those that help earn credits towards tuition, and if you fill five slots, you may register the following year early and ahead of the crowd!

 

Lunches: 

  • Students must pack a non-refrigerated lunch each week. 

  • Once a month, we offer a special lunch opportunity. Student may sign up at the front desk if interested. 

  • Each week, we also offer a snack cart filled with snacks and fruit drinks.                                                                                                              (Sodas are available for high school students only.)

 

We are looking forward to working with you! Please let us know if you have any questions, comments, or concerns. We welcome hearing from our parents!
