Commonly Asked Questions
Question: How do you communicate with parents?
Answer: Each Friday, Freedom folders are sent home with the students. These folders contain important information from the Academy office as well as middle school newsletters. On the middle school newsletters parents and students will be informed of upcoming quizzes, tests, projects, and other important events. Along with the Freedom folder, the students also receive a STAR (Students Taking Academic Responsibility) folder, which includes a weekly progress report to keep parents informed of how their child is doing academically.
Question: How much homework can I expect my child to have?
Answer: Students can expect approximately 90 minutes of homework a night. However, homework is not assigned on Wednesday or Friday evenings out of respect for church and family time. Additional time is necessary for independent reading as well as studying and preparing for upcoming tests and quizzes. Study time and reading time may not factor into the amount of homework a student has at night. Also, any class assignments not completed while at school will also be included as homework that evening. Homework is used as an academic tool to assess the individual student’s knowledge of the subject being discussed. It is not used as busy work or punishment! It is the responsibility of the student to complete all assignments and turn them in on time.
