TPS has been a blessing for me and my family. I wanted to be more challenged as a student and also dig deeper into knowing Jesus. I found both of those things here as well as wonderful teachers! I thought I was terrible at foreign languages, but my French has improved so much in one year. I am also gaining a higher understanding of all the math I have learned so far. Thank you to all the teachers at TPS and all the staff that help make it happen!

I started TPS in 7th grade, taking English 1 and Latin. After that year I began taking nearly all my classes from TPS, through my high school graduation, from English 1 through Advanced Composition, Literature, and Poetry, to math, where I did Algebra 1 through AP calculus, to an awesome four years of French, and several electives ranging from Web Design to Study Skills to Theology. I loved my time with TPS. I'm now graduating from Grace College with my B.S. in Life Sciences & Education, and I'll also receive my teaching license for secondary science. TPS prepared me for nearly everything I encountered in college, and I wouldn't be the teacher I already am without the influence and encouragement and investment of my TPS instructors. I'm so grateful to be able to pass on to my own students what my TPS instructors gave to me: a love for learning and a hope for future achievements.

I had a great time this year in all my classes. Art was definitely my favorite class, but I really enjoyed every single one of my classes this year. The teachers are all amazing; so understanding and willing do above and beyond to help their students. Although the workload was pretty stiff, my teachers laid it out in a way that was manageable, so I was able to keep up. I really enjoyed TPS this year and I can't wait for the coming school year!

...every class is taught from a biblical perspective, integrating truth from Scripture into the material... ...every teacher I've had is enthusiastic about what he or she teaches, and I can tell the love they have for the material, for teaching it, and for those they are teaching... ....and now in English 6 my writing has reached excellence I would never have dreamed of... ...through TPS I've met some phenomenal people and made strong friendships...

A China parent, I strongly believe that TPS is the best choice for my girl since my son (now he is now studying in his second year in the US college) got the benefit from TPS a few years ago.

One of the beauties of TPS is that the homeschooling parent can listen in on the class (while tending to other duties) and know how to support the student in his or her pursuit of academic excellence. Teachers are quick to respond to any concern the student or parent has and often answer within 24 hours! Homework is submitted online and comes back with detailed feedback that is personalized for the student. Before we started with TPS, I was afraid it would be very impersonal. How wrong I was! Teachers address students by name throughout the class and students come to know each other through the chat bar. Best of all, I know my children are under the care and instruction of a loving, Christian teacher who models prayer and godly standards in every aspect of the class.

In my first year at TPS I took courses that were all known for being challenging. I was nervous that I wouldn't be able to adjust, but this anxiety disappeared after my first live lesson in each subject because all my teachers were extremely helpful and patient with me. After discussing with other TPS students in my city, we agreed that grace, ease, and a sense that TPS teachers really want to help us seemed to be common themes. This is part of what I think makes TPS special. In other online schools I have not experienced the same level of comfort or care from my teachers.

TPS has changed the way I look at math. I have taken three math courses with different teachers, and all of the teachers have been encouraging, fun, and very helpful! They employ memes, songs, and funny drawings to help me wrap my mind around hard concepts. Before TPS I struggled immensely with math, but now math is no longer my GPA nemesis!

TPS isn't just a school, it's a safe community for Christian kids. When I first joined TPS, I was a very lonely middle-schooler with few social opportunities and no friends. Not only did TPS give me a wonderful high school education, it gave me a chance to meet other homeschoolers my age. Over the years I have formed very close friendships with people from all over the world. I have found Christian teens who have blessed me and impacted my life on so many levels. I'm so thankful that TPS is a perfect environment in which I can build life-long friendships.

If you want your students to learn how to write, don't bother with other online schools -- just send them to TPS.

How does a TPS class work?

TPS provides fully interactive classrooms to students worldwide, even in remote locations with limited connectivity. Our live classes feature quality audio, chat, interactive presentations and a shared whiteboard for all participants. Students can interactively present content from their computer as well. Classes are recorded to allow for occasional missed class make-up.

TPS teachers provide frequent timely individual feedback for evaluation and improvement. Teachers are also available on a reasonable basis to provide help outside of class by email, office hours, group meeting, or an occasional individual meeting.

Students view class messages, track assignments, submit work, and view grades and feedback through an interface that allows them to manage all their courses in one place. Parents have a single interface to oversee assignments, grades and feedback for all their students and courses.

Upon completion of a course, all records remain accessible indefinitely, and parents can print homeschool grade reports, obtain signed grade reports or request accredited transcripts.

How do I register students and enroll in courses?

Please see our Register and Enroll information.

How do I get teacher placement approval for a course?

Immediately after you enroll, you will receive two automated emails for each course. One email discusses placement and Teacher Approval for the course. Please carefully follow any guidance to submit placement information, tests, essays or other work specified.

Teacher Approval materials and placement tests are due within one week of enrolling in a course (no extensions, sorry!). After you have Teacher Approval for a class, make your first payment by eCheck (preferred) or credit card.

You pay only after you are holding a confirmed approved seat in the class you want.

When are my tuition payments due?

Initial payment is due after you hold a confirmed approved seat in a class you want. Subsequent payment due dates depend on the start date (full year, summer, fall, spring) of each class. Special payment plans are also available. More information on tuition payment schedules...

What are the technical requirements for TPS classes?

TPS classes can be taken on Windows, Mac and Chromebook computers (not tablets, yet). 1 Mbps or higher stable internet is recommended (slower speeds work but reduce the quality of the class, and higher speeds improve the class experience). We support the Chrome and Firefox browsers (others generally work but we don't support them). More information on TPS technical requirements...

Does TPS offer academic counseling?

We provide free academic counseling by phone or skype for families seeking to build their academic plan using TPS courses. Families seeking a TPS Diploma must meet with our Academic Adviser when they enroll each year. Please contact TPS Support to make an appointment.

Does TPS offer accredited transcripts? Diplomas?

TPS offers self-printed homeschool grade reports, signed Grade Reports in pdf form on school letterhead, and transcripts accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools. TPS also offers a standard and an honors diploma. More information on TPS grade reports, transcripts and diplomas...

How do TPS students score on AP® exams?

TPS AP® course students are top scorers on AP® exams, and most get scores of 4 or 5. More information on TPS AP® courses...

How can I get college credit with TPS courses?

TPS offers a number of upper high school courses for both high school and college credit. These courses are designated as "College Credit" in the Course Finder details for each course. To receive college credit for the eligible courses, once the course is successfully completed the student registers with Belhaven University, pays the course setup fee and transcript fee, and requests the transcript from Belhaven. More information on TPS College courses...
