2021 – 2021 School Calendar:

The school year is divided into 2 Semesters. Parents enroll for each Semester individually. Students enrolled in the Fall Semester will be given the opportunity to register for the Winter/Spring semester before it is open to the public. 

13 week Fall Semester: Week of September 7, 2021 - December 6, 2021.

18 week Winter/Spring Semester: Week of January 10, 2022 - May 16, 2022. 

 

SC Homeschool Regulations:

Parents enrolled in Ignite Microschool will register with SC as option 3 Homeschooler. Parents are responsible for ensuring their child competes 180 days of school. It is advisable that you join a homeschool association to help you complete Homeschool regulations with the SC. Ignite will not be acting as a homeschool association. 

Age grouping:

The 2 day - a week program is open to kids ages 5 - 7. We offer a multi-age program to allow for kids to learn not only from the teacher, but also from each other.

Tuition:

$1200 for the 13 week Fall Semester

$!660 for the 18 week Winter/Spring Semester

There are no attendance requirements. Families are free to take vacations or choose not attend school for any reason. However, tuition will not be prorated or returned for days missed.

Parents commit to enrolling their child(ren) and paying tuition for the entire Semester. With such a small group of students, it will put undue pressure on Ignite to have children leave throughout the semester. If, however, Ignite and the family come to a mutual agreement that Ignite Microschool is not your child’s best learning environment, we will discuss options for ending the semester contract.

Admissions:

Parents will complete and submit the on - line Application form for each child. Parents will then email the reference form to two refences who have worked with your child as a teacher, coach, club leader, nanny, babysitter, or medical provider. Once the application and references have been received, the admissions committee will review the application and Beth Kinzer will contact you with the decision. A $75 non-refundable registration fee is due upon enrollment to hold the child's spot. This fee will only be collected once a year. Parents with children enrolled in the fall semester will not pay the registration fee for the Winter/Spring Semester.

Location:

Ignite is located on the eastside of Greenville near Brushy Creek Elementary and Eastside High School. Ignite Location details are described here.
