Honor Code, Plagiarism & Cyber Bullying
Honor Code True North Homeschool Academy is a company that adheres to traditional Judeo-Christian values. Our teachers are committed to bringing exceptional teaching and online classroom experiences for each student. Students can find each class Syllabus and course expectations on our password-secure site and communicate with teachers via email, zoom, or phone call via appointment. Students are expected to come to class prepared, willing, and able to participate in class and submit homework by dates posted in the syllabus.
While online education is a unique and developing medium, our online classrooms are orderly, and manners are expected. Student interaction and participation are encouraged, and Zoom allows us to have kids “raise” their hands electronically, participate in “break-out rooms,” and use a whiteboard. Classes are recorded for students who may miss classes.
Our students are an integral part of our fantastic community, and we strive to honor them and our teachers in each interaction. Thank you for entrusting a part of your student's education to True North Homeschool Academy. We are honored to partner with you!
