Academy Program

About the Program

The Academy Program is a branch of EPIC Homeschool Network, Inc. and was formed to support parents/guardians who choose to educate their child/ren at home. We provide core classes that would provide grades and credits for school, enrichment classes as well as clubs. If you are interested in field trips and socialization opportunities, check out our basic membership program here.

Families can choose to do the full program or a-la-carte. Students enrolled in the full academy program get access to our academy classes and clubs. Families are provided with quarterly one on one homeschool coaching with a dedicated homeschool advisor. They have access to the required homeschool standardized testing up to four learners as well as annual report card and transcript creation services.

Regardless of which program you choose to do, the parent/guardian must remain the teacher of record and file a letter of intent to home school with the Georgia State Department of Education by the time of enrollment and keep a record for their file. EPIC Homeschool Network, Inc. will make academic records for each child in the classes they enroll and give it to the parent/guardian. It is the parent/guardian’s responsibility to keep these records for a period of 3 years.
