Note about class times...

All class times are subject to the availability of each instructor.

Refund Policy

If you must drop a course you have registered to take, you may be eligible for a partial tuition refund. For more information about refund eligibility, please visit our drop and refund policy page. Please remember that $125 of the tuition for each course is non-refundable.

SAT® Prep Genius Drop and Refund policy: For any drop requests submitted by the 15th calendar day of the course, the registrant will receive a $100 refund. No tuition refunds will be offered after the 15th calendar day of the course. The 2020-21 $25 registration fee is non-refundable. 

Section Closure Policy

HSLDA Online Academy strives to keep courses affordable while providing quality, Christian instructors and curriculum. In order to achieve this balance, it is necessary for a minimum number of students to enroll in each individual class section. If the number of enrollments does not reach the minimum for an individual class section, HSLDA Online Academy reserves the right to cancel the section. During those instances, HSLDA Online Academy will make every effort to accommodate impacted students by transferring them to another section of the same course, as closely aligned with their original live class meeting time as is feasible. HSLDA Online Academy communicates these changes via email to students and parents as quickly as is administratively possible. 

Books and Materials

Books and materials are not included in the tuition cost for each course. Students are responsible for obtaining required books and other resources.

The cost of books varies depending on the course and on the types of books students purchase (for example, new books vs. used books, hard copy format vs. electronic format).

You can view information about books and materials on each course page or by visiting the HSLDA Online Academy bookstore.

Please note that you will need to create a distinct bookstore account, separate from your Academy username and password.
