Yearly Subscriptions

A yearly subscription provides you a full calendar year (12 months) access to the course material. The 1-year window does not start until you redeem your purchased registration codes to create your account. So, you can purchase now and get started when ready.

Monthly Subscriptions

Monthly subscriptions are auto-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 at any time. There is no long-term commitment.

Siblings and Families

If you choose a 1-year option, then you can add additional siblings to the same class for $40. If you choose a monthly subscription, then each sibling will require an additional monthly subscription at the same rate.

In either case, purchase just one student initially, and then create your teacher account and add the sibling from your Teacher's Menu within the course.

Refund Guarantee

If, within the first 30 days, you find your selected course is not a good fit for your student for any reason, we will fully refund your purchase price (1-year subscription or first month subscription) and cancel your account with no obligation.
