Do HomeStudy students have to follow the regular school calendar of June – March?
HomeStudy allows learners to work at their own pace. Having said that, a learner who follows the regular school program (June–March) may find it easier to join school activities like competitions as well as the year-end ceremonies. The learner will also have less transition adjustments when shifting to regular schooling.
Do we have to submit the projects of our children?
No. However, you may want to share the projects with other parents through our Community page.
Do you have a permit from the Department of Education (DepEd) to offer a home study program?
Yes, we are recognized by the Department of Education (DepEd).
Does my child have to go to school to take tests?
No. For quarterly tests, learners can take the tests remotely using the VCIS online test platform. Parents/guardians will be asked to sign an affirmation that no one will assist the learner while taking the test.
Can we ask for tutorials, in case my child needs help with academics?
Yes, just give us a call so that we may schedule a session with a teacher. Note that tutorials will be charged hourly rates.
Is VCIS HomeStudy™ exclusive to VCF members only?
Our program is open to all individuals regardless of church affiliation, religion, nationality, and geographic location.
Can I order optional materials later during the school year?
Yes, but please note that orders will only be processed upon full payment. Upon order completion, materials will be delivered within 60-90 days in case we do not have it on stock.
After using the materials I ordered this year, can I use them for my younger child next year?
Enrollment in the HomeStudy Program requires a purchase of the basic package for the level you wish to enroll your child in. Other materials that are not part of the package may be reused by the other children.
If I don’t buy some of the recommended materials, may I just go to your school to browse and copy some parts of the materials?
Parents may browse and copy from the materials in our office. However, photocopying the materials outside the office premises is strictly prohibited.
Are your materials appropriate for special children?
Since it will be the parents who will mainly facilitate the lessons, they can modify the lessons and materials to make them comprehensible for the special needs or conditions of their children.
