Yes, absolutely! UDL offers open enrollment so you can start whenever you wish. It begins when it is convenient for you.
Yes, this IS considered Homeschooling. Our programs are very similar to “traditional classroom” education but with the flexibility of homeschooling. United Digital Learning has taken all the guesswork out for you. Everything is built right into our programs such as Assignments, Lesson Plans, Quizzes and Tests. Best of all, it is extremely user friendly for all to enjoy.
You, as a parent, have been your child’s first “teacher” so believe it or not, it’s not that difficult of a transition because we furnish you with all the right “tools”. As with any educational process, your commitment is important to the success of your child. Through United Digital Learning the guesswork has been eliminated by providing you with all the solutions needed for your child’s independent study program. It is our belief, you and your child will enjoy this learning partnership and grow to enjoy each other like never before.
United Digital Learning is a web-based curriculum “provider” – NOT a school. In order to give our homeschool families the same “tools” as the finest traditional schools, we’ve hand-picked the best curriculum in the country! Many of the SAME successful programs/courses used by the most accomplished and accredited private and public schools worldwide. It is YOU, as the homeschooling parent that will be administering and benefiting from this curriculum – hence, designation you an “official” homeschooler.
UDL will design a Diploma with “Your Homeschool Name” once you have determined that your student has completed the course of study in the program / curriculum provided by us. Again, as the Homeschool Family, taking these distance learning courses, YOU can name your school whatever you wish. For example – If your family name is “Smith” you can choose to use “Smith Homeschool Academy”… Or if you live on Main Street, you may want to consider naming your school “Main Street Homeschool”. As always, be sure to check the homeschool laws of your state and seek local homeschool support groups to guide you through the process. Both of which can be found and located at http://www.homeschoolfacts.com/states/index.php/State_Laws and seek advice through your local homeschool support groups, too.
While United Digital Learning is the “provider” for the curriculum/courseware, it is YOU, the parent or guardian who will be the “teacher” overseeing their education. Our staff will be available during work hours to assist you through the process. You are never alone and we are available every step of the way.
