"St. Joseph and Christ Child" – Bartolomé Esteban Murillo

2022-2023 Enrollment 

Applications are accepted from January 15th through November 30th.  The 2022-2023 school year begins 7/1/2022 and ends 6/30/2023.  Planning for the school year starts as soon as the student skills assessments are returned to your advisor for evaluation.  This means you are welcome to start planning for the new school year as early as January 2022 and start the new school year when you choose.  While most STAA families elect to follow a traditional August through June academic calendar, we have a handy, step-by-step planning tool to help you craft a custom academic calendar that fits your family.

We recommend submitting your family's enrollment application eight to ten weeks before the date you have in mind as your first day of the new school year.  To do so:

1. Submit the enrollment application online

2. Pay the annual enrollment fees by check, money order, credit card, or payment plan.

3. Watch for your welcome/assessment packet to arrive in the mail within a few days.

Thanks for all you do on your end to help make our homeschooling academically, intellectually, spiritually, and morally enriching!!

Denise

My advisor helps me to understand what needs to be done and how to make it really fun for the kids. What I really like are the tips she gives me for dealing with the little ones while trying to school the older ones.

Amber

This is our first year homeschooling. STAA and [our advisor] have made this a very easy transition. We have had a great year!

Gwen H.

I really don't know what I would do without your kindness, and very helpful advice. You are a blessing to our family.

Pat

The assessment testing was quick and easy to do, so I didn't expect much valuable feedback. Boy was I wrong!!! It was like my advisor had met my kids and spent hours/days with them.

Mary Ellen

We have been so very happy with our first year with STAA! Thank you for walking me through it and for all the fantastic resources and materials we are using. There is not one we don't like!

Elizabeth

Our family so enjoyed our wonderful relationship with STAA as our [son] worked his way through high school. It was a wonderful and outstanding experience for him and we continue to suggest your program to all those who are looking for an excellent homeschool experience.

Since I am writing, I will also sing more praises of the Greek Studies plan. [My daughter] moaned over the timed-essay and then did very well. So easy to implement with the choose one reflection topic from each subject and then get ready, get set, go! Apparently the school also gave suggestions for the process essay in "Format Writing." Thank you! For a mom of many this is real time saver.

The academy works as a team to accomplish for your family specific ideas or needs for education, but more importantly, what each individual in your family needs, even Mom.
