When purchasing any course, you will have two main decisions to make:

  • Should I purchase a monthly subscription or a 1-year subscription?
  • Should I purchase a self-study course or a teacher-led course?

The following prices apply for all combinations of these options on this two-semester course.

Monthly Option1-Year Option
Self-Study  $15.00 / month$120 / year
Teacher-Led  $35.00 / month$300 / year

 

If you choose a 1-year option, then you can add additional siblings to the same class for $40 (self-study) or $220 (teacher-led). Additional siblings can be added by the teacher from within the course after your initial login.

If you choose a monthly subscription, then additional siblings can be added under the same teacher at the same monthly subscription rates.

Monthly or 1-Year Subscription

You can choose an affordable monthly subscription or purchase a 1-year subscription. Students will progress through courses at their own pace, normally finishing this course in two full semesters. But some students may complete the material more quickly or slowly.

Monthly subscriptions are billed to your credit card each month. You can maintain the subscription for as long as your student needs to complete the course and cancel the subscription when complete.

1-year subscriptions let you pay one discounted price up-front for a full calendar year of access. After the first year, if you need more, you can convert your account to a monthly subscription.
