We are pleased that you have interest in this great way to educate your family.
If you choose to apply and register, we will add your name to our private Distance Learning Facebook page where you can get updates and share your learning experiences with other Distance Learning families. You can also post photos and videos of your family, and your students can share the creative work they are doing throughout the school year.
For NEW Distance Learning families, the application fee is $50 per family. For returning KA Distance Learning families, there is no re-application fee.
Here is how Distance Learning works:
The system we use for the Kimber Academy Distance Learning classes is called zoom.us, and is interactive. Students can talk directly to the instructor to ask questions or make comments just like any other classroom situation. They will be tuning in with many other students across the country at the same time, and they will be able to see each other as they ask questions and participate.
Classes are held 3 days a week, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, from September through May.
Elective classes are normally held each Friday.
Where to Begin
STEP ONE: Decide how you will be watching the classes. You can use a computer, tablet, laptop, or cell phone. Download the free zoom.us program onto the device(s) that you will be using. For computers, register with zoom.us using an email address. For a cell phone, register with zoom.us, using the cell phone number.
STEP TWO: Go to the Kimber Academy website and create a personal account, if you do not already have one — www.kimberacademynational.com.
STEP THREE: Record your log-in information somewhere so you will remember how to log in each day (you can click the box “remember me” as well). After logging in, go to the “Distance Learning” tab on the upper right-hand corner of the Kimber Academy home page and choose “Application & Tuition” from the drop-down menu.
STEP FOUR: On the Application and Tuition page, pay the Application Fee ($50 per NEW family). Our system uses STRIPE. You will then receive an email of verification.
STEP FIVE: Review which classes are offered for the various age groups in your family. (Individual classes are $60 per month. See information on the CLASSES page for bundling as well as yearly pricing — a greater discount price):
Senior Classes (ages 12 and up, taught T, W, Th)
Junior B Classes (ages approx. 9 – 11, taught T, W, Th)
Junior A Classes (ages approx. 6 – 8, taught T, W, Th)
STEP SIX: Sign up for classes, or watch pre-recorded classes to see if Kimber Academy will be a “fit” for your family. BUNDLE: Pay just $300 per month for ALL Senior, Junior-B and Junior-A classes. (Students are free to switch age-groups at any time, depending on preference.) YEARLY PRICE: Get one month free!
Elective Classes — $20 extra per class (normally taught each Friday for 1 hour)
STEP SEVEN: Follow the directions for payment. Options: (1) automatic monthly payments, or (2) Annual payment with 1 month free, and (3) add any chosen electives desired.
STEP EIGHT: Order your curriculum (www.kimbercurriclum.com). There are specific manuals or workbooks for each class, and these are listed with the class. Enrolled families get a 20% discount with a code that will be emailed to you.
STEP NINE: Order a Diagnostic Test for each family member if desired. Testing is conducted the second week of September (NO SCHOOL HELD) and is under the direction of the parents at home. Tests are offered for all ages. Each diagnostic exam costs $30 for enrolled Distance Learning students (20% savings), with free shipping and handling. A discount code will be sent to your email. For more information and to order online with the National Testing Center click here. Additional diagnostic exams are offered in January and April/May. This year’s testing (2022-2023) is the NTC-300 series.
THE KIMBER ACADEMY DRESS STANDARD:
IMPORTANT: Inasmuch as students will be seen by others, they should always look and behave their best when they join class each day. This program is set up just as if they were going to school each day. Kimber Academy dress and behavior codes always apply.
Remember that you can discontinue Distance Learning at any time if for some reason it is not working for your family. After you notify the Distance Learning personnel by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org, your payments, account and access to the classes will be suspended the same day. You may also use the same email address for questions or comments about your Distance Learning experience.
