Frequently Asked Questions
 

Is there a waiting list for enrollment?


Enrollment is always open; year round.




What are the fees for Face?


Please see the enrollment form here for enrollment fees. If you would like to attend classes or field trips those are paid separately.




Is there any contractual obligation for classes?


No. For classes payment is made month to month.




Do I need to use approved curriculum?


You are in charge of your children's education and may use whatever you wish.




How do you create High School transcripts.


We require semester report cards, to include attendance information, and, upon completion of the course, we need the final grade earned and whether the class was a half or 1 credit course. We use this information to create official transcripts which are sent to future universities or other educational programs.




Is it really feasible to go through you and live out of the area, or would we have to travel a lot to you?


Good question! We are located in the North Metro Denver, Colorado area, but we have families enrolled all over the US and even in some foreign countries. Although we would love to meet you, it is possible we will not. It is up to each family to determine if enrollment with our school fulfills their state or nation's compulsory attendance laws.




I have an 8th grader who wants to start taking high school classes for credit.  Is that possible?


Students who take high school level courses in 8th grade receive high school credit.




My student is currently sending in college applications. Do the schools usually request transcripts from FACE directly, or expect us to initiate the request?  Does it just depend on the school?


In every case we have seen, the student must initiate the request for transcripts to be sent directly to the school. We will handle that when you provide addresses.




What is your national school code to be used when taking college entrance tests and for FAFSA and college applications?


It is 061447.




What is FACE School?


Face is a private school that has served families since 1996. We are based in Colorado but have families located in several other states and countries. We serve to enrich the experience of homeschool families by providing them private school services while allowing them the freedom to design a custom education plan for each of their children.




Does FACE School have a statement of faith?


We have a list of core values that are based on our faith. Click here to learn more.




How often can I change classes?


To be fair to our teachers, we ask that you commit to one semester of classes at a time. This helps our teachers better plan. The first two weeks of the semester will be allowed for changes so if a class isn’t a good fit, you can change. (For those who join us after classes begin you will still have the option to switch for your first 2 weeks)




We’re not Christians.  Can we still join Face?


Yes. All are welcome at Face. We believe in encouraging diversity, fostering inclusion, and encouraging multi-cultural awareness. We don’t have to agree on everything to show each other kindness and acceptance! By embracing this with all who wish to attend it will enhance each of our experiences, help our students succeed, and prepare them to thrive in a diverse world.




Why is this not a drop off program?


First because it fosters a culture of family involvement. If your child needs you, you’re there and if you’re interested in what they’re learning you are always welcome in their classrooms. If they are in more than one class it is also the parent’s responsibility to be sure your child gets from one class to the next. Second because we NEED a village. By spending time together in a central area parents can form relationships and support each other. We can’t do life alone. If you do need to leave you can designate a parent while you’re away.




I have a high schooler and would really like more information on what kinds of record keeping you require for transcripts.


We require semester report cards, to include attendance information, and, upon completion of the course, we need the final grade earned and whether the class was a half or 1 credit course. We use this information to create official transcripts which are sent to future universities or other educational programs.




I have a medically complex student, 2E student, student on an IEP, etc. How can you accommodate my student’s unique needs?


We recognize that some students may be delayed from traditional schedules or be on their own pathway entirely. You are welcome to design your educational program to accommodate where your student is and how they learn. Progress is progress and we each have our own timetable for how that progress occurs.




If I am enrolled with face do I need to submit a letter of intent?


No. If you are enrolled with Face you are officially enrolled in a private school. There is no need to submit a letter of intent to any district.




If I am enrolled with Face do I need to submit a vaccine record?


No. Under current laws in Colorado we are not required to hold vaccine records and we will not ask for them unless the laws change. We trust parents to make the best choice for their children.




Do you require testing?


No. Testing is optional with FACE. It will be up to the parent to determine what is needed for their child’s future.​ We do offer testing, including proctored exams such as the PSAT and SAT at various times during the year. If you have had your child tested and want this included in their record you may forward results to info@faceschool.org




Where do you have classes?


We meet in Southeast Westminster, CO. The exact location will be given to you if you request a trial visit or if you enroll as full access.




What are your in person Covid protocols?


We will follow all Jeffco and CDC policies at the time of classes to the best of our abilities. We do not have the budget for testing but things like masks and social distancing are well within our ability to implement.
