If you are interested in being a homeschool school student at First Academy – Leesburg, there are many ways you can do that! You can apply for our Homeschool – Athlete, Homeschool – Band, or Homeschool – Drama programs. The first step in the process is to fill out an application online by clicking the button below. If you are applying to be a Homeschool – Athlete, you can find all of the required documents under the “Parents” tab at www.fhsaa.com. In the application, you must upload the following:
- EL2 (athletes only)
- EL3 (athletes only)
- EL7 (athletes only)
- EL7V (athletes only) – after getting it signed by the Lake County Homeschool Office
- Birth Certificate
- Vaccination Record
- Transcript/ Report Card
You cannot move forward until all of these records are uploaded into the application.
Once you have applied, there is a $650 New Homeschool Registration Fee ($500 for returning homeschool students) that you can pay online or in person by check or money order.
When both of these steps are completed, you will need to set up a family interview with our principal, Greg Frescoln. In this interview, he will go over material in our handbook. Please be aware that one of the things he will review with you is that all homeschool students must complete 10 hours of community service each year! You must sign a handbook agreement and an honor code before moving forward with your registration.
Once all of this is complete, your information will be shared with our Athletic Director, Band Director, and/or Drama Club Coordinator.
If your student does not make the team and does not plan to try out for any other sports, all but $100 of the fee will be refunded.
Please note that being a Homeschool Student with First Academy also allows your student to be in activities, such as school dances and standaradized testing.
