Issue 84 | October 19, 2015 | Accreditation is Coming!

You Deserve Our Gratitude!

Only 6-7 weeks from now, NARHS will receive the announcement of

FULL accreditation from the regional agency Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.  You who have stayed with us through this whole process of  application and site visit, almost two years worth of work, will soon be rewarded for your trust by securing a transcript that is backed up with ease of transferability into colleges, job opportunity and other public/private institutions.
As a gesture of appreciation, here is what we are offering you:
For every student who is registered with us on  the day that the accreditation announcement comes, a special tutition of
$399.99 for the 2016-17 year will be awarded.
This tuition price will also be extended to siblings of the enrolled student.
The $399.99 tuition will be grandfathered for as long as the student and sibling(s) are enrolled in NARHS without interruption.
In order to maintain the "Friend of NARHS" grandfathered tuition, the students (and their benefiting siblings) must re-register and pay in full by August 31 each year.
We will be sending a newsletter the day we receive the announcement.  Thank you for your loyalty and trust.

We Need Your Input!

One of the projects targeted by the "New NARHS" is the gathering of information about great:

  • home schooling programs
  • co-ops
  • curriculum

as well as other opportunities you have discovered in your area that we can collect and share among others not only for those dwelling near you, but also for idea-triggers for us all.  Send your discoveries to your advisor, or to contact@narhs.org.

In the process of accreditation, we are striving to improve, and we need you to partner with us so that our improvement impacts you as well.  If there is anything we need to change, now is the time to let us know.  We also will be collecting data and your feedback is crucial.  All data-collecting will be anonymous.  Your confidentiality is of utmost importance to us.
