Are there other fees aside from the tuition and miscellaneous fee of P16000?

There are NO other fees required. We do not collect any fees for online testing or assessment as the Report Card or Progress Report is sufficient to show your child has successfully finished the previous level. Optional expenses you might have on top of the tuition are for Study Booklets, Textbooks or Tutorials and Special Classes. You may, however, access assessment files of DepEd that you can download and print if you wish for your child to have this test. 


Do you charge a different fee for differently-abled children (SPED)?

Victorious Homeschool is an inclusive institution and we accept all children and all children pay the SAME TUITION. Optional expenses you might have for SPED are for official diagnosis from a Developmental Pediatrician, (IEP) Individualized Education Program, and Special Tutorial Classes. 

If you wish for your child's needs to be assessed and addressed, you can ask us for the directory of developmental pediatricians, counselors, and therapists. You may also work with your own trusted doctors and therapists.


Do you have installment plans and promotions?

Early Registration for School Year 2021-2022 from February 1 to March 31 lets you enjoy the NO MISCELLANEOUS FEE promo. It is available to old and new students for the One-Time and Two-Time Payment Scheme. The 10% Sibling discount apply if siblings are registering at the same time.


As the parent-teacher, what are my tasks and responsibilities?

Your primary task is to guide your child’s learning process. You may consult advisers or teachers when you need assistance by calling or messaging the Group Chat Support, Victorious Village and Email platforms. You are also encouraged to remain updated with announcements in the mentioned platforms and engage in the Zooming In parent-teachers meeting, webinars, and monitor your child’s Volt In classes and activities.


What about grades and report cards?

As the parent-teacher or guardian, you are the sole provider of your child’s grades. We provide you with an editable grading form where you input scores (quizzes, performance tasks/projects, recitation/participation) for every quarter. You will submit quarterly grades in the Google Classroom. There is a video tutorial to guide you and you may also contact advisers and parent leaders when you need help.


At what age can I start homeschooling?

Children aged 2-3 years old are considered Nursery Level, while children aged 4 are Pre-Kinder. Aside from the Quarterly Study Guide, Nursery and Pre-Kinder students are provided with free eBooks and join the Victorious Reader Volt-Ins. DepEd registration officially begins in Kinder when the child is 5 years old by the month/date indicated by DepEd. Students need to be at least 6 years old for Grade 1.


Can I still homeschool even if I have a job?

Definitely. No matter your situation, it is possible to homeschool with thoughtful planning and creativity. Of course it requires commitment and at times, sacrifice, but once you have adjusted, it becomes easier and you will see it will all be worth it. You can dedicate less time for academic facilitating on workdays and more time when you are off work. Depending on your schedule, you can teach between 1-3 hours, on specific days when it is right for your family. You will discover daily, ordinary events as opportunities for teaching and cherish the moments you spend together as a family. The Victorious Quarterly Study Booklets are especially helpful as they provide the lessons from presentation, check up quizzes to the quarterly test. Links for supplemental study websites and videos are also included in the material.


What are the benefits of victorious homeschooling?

Parents choose to homeschool to actively monitor and teach their children because of various reasons. Aside from the freedom, flexibility and affordability of homeschooling, many choose to do it because of the importance they place on being together as a family and a way to avoid the pressure to conform to norms not aligned with the family's belief system.


What are the usual challenges of homeschooling?

For many first-time homeschooling parents, challenges include the feeling of inadequacy in teaching academics, the fear of not teaching enough or beneath standards, and the overwhelm of trying to accomplish so many things at once. After some time, many of these parents attest that the whole process of homeschooling gets better. Recognizing that each family is unique and steering away from unhealthy comparison help you appreciate your own accomplishments, no matter how little or slow you think these achievements are. With the right support and a whole lot of faith, homeschooling can be done victoriously.


What about socialization?

The past year limited personal interactions, but under normal circumstances, students would have been involved in activities like sports, theater, special classes, family events, and others where friendships and skills are developed. Usually, homeschooling kids learn to socialize and relate vertically with parents and adults, and horizontally with siblings, and friends. For now, Zoom or Volt In meetings with teachers, parent leaders and fellow students provide creative virtual socialization opportunities and learning experiences.


How do I know if I am qualified to teach my child?

More than academic qualification, parents should have willingness to commit to educating their child. Most parents do not have a teaching degree, and yet are able to teach their children successfully. You can also check out the Victorious Study Options if you wish for extra help.
