The two schedules that are available below are samples only. It is up to you as their parent to decide how to properly structure your student for success. The main rule of thumb is to give at least 30 minutes to each subject. Some subjects can be completed in less than 30 minutes, while others might take a little longer (especially if your student is in high school). Our student advisers would love to help set up a personalized school schedule for your student that incorporates their live classes. From the first glance, you might think that your student is spending all day in class. For example, the sample schedule for the 4th graders and up would start school around 9 am and finish around 2 pm. That is a total of 5 hours, right? Now, let's delete the 1-hour lunch break and then, we are down to 4 hours. Take away the 5 breaks in between each subject or live class, and the schedule is reduced to 3 hours and 35 minutes. That is the total time that would be spent attending live classes and working on their homework per day. Then, they would have the afternoon, evenings, and weekends to do whatever they would like. A student would typically have 2 to 4 live classes per day to attend. That is only 1 to 2 hours per day actually on the computer, listening to a teacher. The rest of the time is spent completing assignments by reading their textbooks or completing homework worksheets. It is very important for students to have a daily routine so that assignments are completed regularly and do not fall behind. We do not schedule any live classes on Fridays, however, in some of the higher subjects (and Bible in all grades), we may post an assignment to ensure completion of the class by the end of the year. Continuing to keep Fridays free of live classes allows time for homeschool group meetings or for participation in family activities.
