Secondary Academic Class Day is a non-denominational Christian homeschool co-op that provides academic opportunities for 7th-12th grade homeschooled students. HCCH is a Christian organization, adhering to the historical tenets of the Christian faith. SAC Day tutors are required to agree with and sign the HCCH Statement of Faith.
As a SAC Day tutor, you plan your class, choose curriculum students will need to purchase, and set your own supply/tuition fees. You also decide how many students you need to sign up in order for your class to make. If we don't get that number of students, you are not required to teach the class. The SAC Day Board supports you in many ways. We facilitate registration and collect all tuition by check (written to you) or cash. We provide and pay for the facility use, set the annual schedule, and provide assistance with discipline issues if needed. You will provide grading (even if it's non-traditional) but parents are still responsible for high school transcripts/record keeping. It is our goal to make this a great place to come and teach what you are passionate about without having to deal with the administration duties that come with tutoring.
We require that our tutors have education and/or experience that qualifies them to teach their classes. We don't require certain certifications or levels of degrees. However, when it comes to certain core classes like math, science, English, Bible, etc. we would expect you to have extensive education/experience that qualifies you to teach that subject. We also run a background check on all our tutors.
We ask our families and tutors to make a school year-long commitment to be at class day every scheduled Monday from August to May. The occasional absence for illness or vacation is expected. You will be required to find and pay a substitute for your class if you have an expected absence. The substitute must be approved by the SAC Day Board. We collect annual tuition from families in the form of post-dated checks and distribute them to you on the first Monday of each month (August, September, October, November, January, February, March, and April). The school year consists of 32 weeks total, so it is easier to collect 8 full month payments, even though August, December and May only have a couple of school days. We take off Labor Day, Thanksgiving week, 2-3 weeks at Christmas (depending on where the holidays fall), President's Day, and Spring Break in March.
