Terms & Conditions
Parents are expected to take primary responsibility for the student’s education. This includes supervising their academic activity and assuring that assignments and tests are completed as required.
At Logos Online School, we understand that our role in the education of young people is under the authority of parents. It is a parent’s task to bring their children up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord, and this helps define the boundaries of the task of Christian teachers and administrators. We are not replacing parents, therefore, we encourage students to joyfully submit to their parents in all things.
Parents are expected to procure and maintain all required equipment and materials needed for each registered course.
Parents are expected to regularly log in to ClassReach, the online student management system, and to make sure they are receiving electronic messages from ClassReach. An email will be deemed to have been received and read 24 hours after it is sent to the email address provided by parents in ClassReach.
Parents are expected to oversee their student’s activities on the internet. Students attending online classes and engaging in extracurricular online activities with classmates will certainly face temptations that are unique to this media. Parents should be diligent to guard online communications, particularly any that take place outside of our closed communication system (ClassReach). Note: This article, “Smart Kids and Dumb Phones by Pastor Douglas Wilson may be helpful in navigating these waters.
Parents are expected to secure any answer keys that may be in the home, and ensure that they are accessed only when permitted by the instructor.
Tuition & Discounts:
Classes meet online daily, Monday through Thursday, for 50 minutes each day -- for 42 weeks.
Regular tuition for online, teacher-led courses for the year is $675 per course.
Full-time ("Diploma Track") discount: Any aggregate of four or more courses qualifies for a 10% discount, bringing the reduced tuition for each course to $607.50 (x4 classes = $2430).
There are no additional fees (consulting, diploma, etc).
When registering for classes, you will pay a non-refundable and non-transferable 20% deposit for each course in order to secure a seat in a particular class. The 20% deposit applies to the total tuition fee.
Books and other required materials are in addition to the above course costs. Logos Online School does not sell these materials, but we can recommend various places where they can be purchased.
Registration & Payment Plans: Upon registration, Logos Online will create a monthly payment plan for the balance of tuition, paid in monthly installments with the first payment due June 1 and the final payment in May.
Families who register after June 1 will be invoiced immediately for the months that have transpired at the time of registration. For example, if a student registers on August 25, the family will pay the 20% deposit as well as the monthly payments for June, July, and August. They will then continue forward with the monthly payment plan for the balance of tuition.
Families desiring to pay in full may do so at any time after their ClassReach account is set up. If a quarterly payment plan is preferred, an administrator can easily make that adjustment.
Withdrawals: Logos Online School retains and hires the best available teachers for your students. To do so, we need reliable enrollment numbers, and the sooner the better. We contract our teachers for the entire school year based on registrations and deposits, so our withdrawal policy reflects this commitment. As previously noted, the 20% tuition deposit is non-refundable and non-transferable in all situations.
Students withdrawing before June 15:
If tuition has been paid in full, a refund for the tuition paid (excluding the 20% deposit) will be issued.
If the family is on a monthly or quarterly payment plan, any tuition paid before June 15 (excluding the 20% deposit) will be refunded, and the obligation to pay the balance of tuition for the year will be forgiven.
Students withdrawing after June 15 through the first two weeks of classes:
If tuition has been paid in full:
- After June 15 = Receive a 90% refund of tuition paid (less the 20% deposit)
- After July 15 = Receive a 80% refund of tuition paid (less the 20% deposit)
- After August 15 = Receive a 70% refund of tuition paid (less the 20% deposit)
- If the family is on a monthly or quarterly payment plan and withdraws between June 15th and the first two weeks of school, no refunds of tuition paid will be given, but the obligation to pay the balance of tuition for the year will be forgiven.
Students withdrawing after the first two weeks of classes:
- If tuition has been paid in full, no refunds will be given for tuition paid, but we will provide a prorated tuition credit for the next school year, which may be applied to any member of a student's immediate family.
- If the family is on a payment plan, no refunds will be given for tuition already paid, and the obligation to pay the balance of tuition for the year will continue. However, the balance of tuition paid after withdrawal (not the 20% deposit) may be used as a tuition credit for the next school year for any member of a student's immediate family.
Late Enrollment: Logos Online School may accept students after school has begun, but this is determined on an individual basis. Details of payments, credit for the class, etc. will vary based on the particular circumstances.
Where to Register: New families should register their students through this website by selecting your class schedule (see Classes dropdown above). Returning students may re-enroll via the ClassReach online platform during the pre-enrollment period. After pre-enrollment is closed in ClassReach, returning families will also register via this website.
Writing Quality: It is assumed that the students will have sufficient mastery of writing skills including grammar, vocabulary, and expression commensurate with their grade level.
Computer Skills: The student must have a reasonable ability to type on a computer keyboard.
Grade Reports: Teachers will maintain an accurate grade book. Students and parents access grades and graded assignments via ClassReach, the Logos Online School student management system. Final grade reports are also accessible via ClassReach two weeks following the end of each semester.
Attendance and Make-Ups: Teachers post recordings of classes, which should be viewed by absent students in a timely manner. The student is responsible for obtaining notes or assignments from the missed class.
Due Dates: All assignments are due in the manner prescribed by the teacher, Pacific Standard Time.
Homework: Daily homework will be limited to what the average student can reasonably accomplish in 30 minutes each day (per class). Reading for the Integrated Humanities class is the exception to this expectation, but will be limited to 1- 1 ½ hours each day.
Cheating & Plagiarism: For issues involving cheating/plagiarism, reconciliation and restoration will be the primary goals of the teachers and administrators as they guide the student towards confessing and taking responsibility for their actions. If cheating is confirmed and the student is repentant, the student should formally apologize to the parents and the teacher. If the student cheated on a test/quiz, they may retake the test/quiz but will receive no higher than a 70% in for that test/quiz the grade book.
Honor Roll: Logos Online School recognizes outstanding student scholarship for full-time, Diploma Track students each school year.
- All A’s = A Honor Roll
- All A’s & B’s = A/B Honor Roll
Graduates who achieve the A Honor Roll during their entire high school career with Logos Online School (grades 9-12) may wear the gold honor cord at the LOS graduation ceremony. Graduates who achieve the A/B Honor Roll (or a combination A and A/B Honor roll) during grades 9-12 with Logos Online School may wear a silver honor cord. Transcripts for students transferring into LOS during high school will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis to determine if they qualify for either honor roll.
- Biblical behavior standards will be followed at all times.
- Students are required to have their video cameras on during the scheduled class. Students are participating in a community activity and must engage both visually and audibly.
- The student’s physical “presentation” should not distract the student or his neighbor, but promote a scholarly atmosphere. This includes the student’s posture, personal attire, hair/makeup, and the background of their video feed.
- Students, parents, and auditors may not share classroom links without express written permission.
- Talking (including instant messaging & chatbox) will not be permitted during class except: 1) When the teacher asks for a response. 2) When it can be inferred that it is permitted by the teacher. 3) When it is germane to the topic being discussed in class.
- Background noise or music is not permitted.
Logos Online School uses Class for Zoom as our video-conferencing platform.
The following operating systems are supported with Class:
- MacOS-Mojave 10.14, Catalina 10.15, and Big Sur 11.1+
- Windows 10
- Android 6
- Chromebooks that have access to PlayStore (see this Chrome Compatibility Matrix, and Chromebook FAQs)
For the best experience using Class, CLASS recommends having RAM of 4 Gb. It is recommended for your processor to have a dual-core 2Ghz or higher (Intel i3/i5/i7 or AMD equivalent.) CLASS does support Single-core 1Ghz or higher.
You will also need:
- Internet connection (broadband is best)
- Microphone—Most computers have built-in microphones and speakers, but you will get much better audio quality if you use a headset.
How We Build our Classes
- Our schedule is set up to ensure that all the required classes are available for students who are pursuing the Diploma Track.
- The classes/times are established by the school, and then the teachers are given the opportunity to select the times that work for their personal schedule.
- The teachers are listed next to the times as a service to our families. We anticipate—but do not guarantee—that a particular teacher will fill that time slot.
- A class must have a certain number of students enrolled in a specific time (section) in order for that section to “make.” In the event that a section is closed, we will work with the students to adjust their schedules so that they are able to take all the needed/desired subjects.
- If a section fills and there are still a significant number of students desiring to enroll, we will open a second class at the same time.
