Q: Can my student pick and choose the courses he would like to take or does he have to take his entire class load at Northpoint?
A: Students in 4th through 12th grade are free to take one class or multiple classes, depending on the needs and desires of each family.
Students in Kindergarten through 3rd grade may only enroll in a
block schedule that includes Bible, Math, Science, English, and History.
They can then add one or more additional electives.
Q: Why do I need to pay a separate application for the Elementary/Intermediate program and the Middle School/High School program?
A: Both programs have separate administrative, staff and facility expenses and the application fee helps offset these costs.
Q: What if we decide to drop a class in the middle of the school year?
A: Enrollment in a class is for the entire school year if it is a
year-long class or for two quarters if it is a semester class. Within the first
two weeks of a class, a student may choose early termination without penalty. However,
the first tuition installment is non-refundable. After the two-week period, there is
an $80.00 Early Termination Fee for 1 hour and 1½ hour classes
and a $120.00 Early Termination Fee for AM or PM blocks (Kindergarten – 3rd grade).
This fee is payable to Northpoint.
(See Early Termination Policy on the Overview page.)
Q: Is Northpoint affiliated with the United Methodist church?
A: Northpoint has a rental agreement with Fishers United Methodist Church.
Northpoint is a non-denominational program and is unaffiliated with any specific denomination or church.
Q: What if we do not have our children immunized?
A: Immunization records are not mandatory.
Q: Where does my student go if she has a free period between classes?
A: All students must be in a study hall if they are present on the campus
but are not in class. There are two study halls: “social” for those students who
wish to spend time chatting and socializing with other students; and, “quiet” for
those students who need a quiet environment to study. One study hall per day is
free of charge, each additional study hall is $120.00 per year payable in
four (4) $30.00 installments.
Q: Why is there a charge for study hall?
A: Students who have a free hour between classes need to be in study hall. However, because of our social study hall, many students prefer to stay after their classes are done for the day in order to spend time with their friends. Additionally, some students are dropped off or picked up well before or after their classes for the convenience of their parents. This has resulted in very large numbers in most of our study halls which means further supervision is required. The fees collected for study hall offset the cost of hiring an additional monitor.
Q: Is my application fee refundable if we change our minds before classes begin?
A: No, the application fee is non-refundable.
Q: What is the purpose of the administrative/technology fee?
A: This fee goes toward administrative salaries, web site support, room rental fees, custodial services, insurance, and other miscellaneous copy and office expenses.
Q: What is the purpose of a supply fee?
A: Northpoint teachers do not have office equipment such as copiers available to them in our facility. They must utilize copy centers and other office supply stores for copies and supplies. The supply fee helps to offset this cost.
Q: What is the purpose of the lab fee?
A: The lab fee is typically for a science class and is used to purchase materials and supplies for experiments, dissections, and other class projects.
Q: Will Northpoint provide my high school student with a transcript that can be used for college applications?
A: Northpoint provides quarterly report grades, but each parent is responsible for maintaining their student’s transcript.
Q: When is the latest date I can change my student’s schedule?
A: You may add, delete, or change a class without charge until June 30, 2013.
Q: Can my student go to Northpoint if he has been suspended or expelled from another school or homeschool program?
A: Students must be in good standing with any previous school or homeschool program in order to be considered for enrollment at Northpoint.
