Please read below "A Note About Our Curriculum." Prior to purchasing curriculum, please confirm with the tutor that their list is accurate and no changes have been made. Literature lists are typically updated during the summer.
Shurley English and Horizons Math are used throughout our program and chosen specifically for their rigorous approach to laying a firm foundation in skills that students need to be successful in High School and beyond. Otherwise, the curriculum for classes offered at eXtend Tutorial is chosen by the individual tutors. Each tutor is asked to choose a published spine/text which may be supplemented by other materials that they source or create. At times, the most economical and readily available text is not entirely ideal, and the tutor may choose to use some of the material as a framework, but not design the course to follow it completely. Also, the authors or publishing companies, and some material in the published texts may espouse ideas that do not align with your family’s values. In that case, tutors may point out issues, or choose to ignore them altogether. While every effort is taken to ensure the required resources do not violate the basic tenets of the eXtend Tutorial Statement of Faith, it is impossible for us to scrutinize the curriculum through the filter of every family enrolled. To that end, we strongly advise each parent to carefully vet the curriculum list according to your family’s standards before enrolling your student in a class. Tutors are not responsible for parents’ displeasure with any curriculum choices after the fact.
All classes are taught in a group setting by qualified tutors in an engaging, structured setting.
Because classes are provided a la carte, families have the flexibility of taking as few or as many classes as they wish. You are under no obligation to take the full compliment of classes, but instead are able to tailor a schedule to meet your individual student's needs.
Annual tuition for all elementary and middle school classes is $325 per class, per student (plus any applicable materials/lab/copy fees as specified by the tutor). The exceptions are Elementary/ Middle School Elective Classes, which meet once a week. Please see the Course Descriptions document for specifics.
Annual tuition for high school classes is $350 per class, per student (plus any applicable materials/lab/copy fees as specified by the tutor) except as noted by the tutor -- i.e. classes with longer meeting times, classes with additional credit options, and once a week elective classes. Please see the Course Descriptions document for specifics.
A DEPOSIT OF $30 IS DUE TO EACH TUTOR BY APRIL 10, 2022 TO HOLD YOUR STUDENT'S SPOT IN CLASS. Families are to make payments directly to the class tutor in the manner(s) specified by the individual tutor. eXtend DOES NOT ACCEPT ANY TUTOR PAYMENTS.
The first installment payment (see the three available payment schedules below) AND any applicable materials/lab/copy fees are due to each class tutor by June 10, 2022.

3. Three Payments (due June 10th, September 10th and December 10th):
**Late payments are assessed a $30 fee per student, per class, payable to the tutor.
