Q. How do I go about taking my child out of traditional schooling to enrolling him/her into your program?
A. This may vary depending on the state you’re in. Check the link below for your state
However, the typical guidelines are as follows:
1. Ensure that the person or people homeschooling your child have the required qualifications.
You must be a parent or a legal guardian of a child before you can file a declaration of intent to homeschool that child. You may hire a tutor to help you homeschool your child. The teaching parent or guardian and any tutor in a home study program must have a high school diploma or a GED.
2. Submit an annual declaration of intent.
Within 30 days after you begin homeschooling, and every year thereafter by September 1, you must submit a “declaration of intent to utilize a home study program” to the Georgia Department of Education. You can access online and printable versions of the declaration of intent on the department’s website. Your declaration must include the names and ages of your students, the location of your home study program, the local school system in which your home study program is located, and the 12-month period that you consider to be your home study program’s school year.
3.Provide the required number of days of instruction.
During the school year, your home study program must provide the equivalent of 180 days of education with each school day consisting of at least four and one-half school hours, unless your child is physically unable to comply with this requirement.
4.Teach the required subjects.
You must include reading, grammar, math, social studies, and science in your homeschool curriculum.
5. Write annual progress reports.
At the end of every school year, you must write a report of the progress that your child made in each of the required subjects. You must keep this report in your records for at least three years. It does not have to be submitted to public school officials.
6. Test your child at least every three years after he or she completes 3rd grade.
Your child must be tested at least every three years, beginning at the end of the 3rd grade. You may administer the test if you do this “in consultation with a person trained in the administration and interpretation of norm reference tests.” Test results do not have to be submitted to public school officials.

Q. Can my child be in public schools and still be enrolled in the School Of Sauce?
A. Yes. Many of our students are in traditional school and take our classes as well. All of our classes are recorded via zoom so if they miss a class, they can always catch the replay.
Q. As a parent is it mandatory that I take the classes?
A. Yes, we believe that primary education should be taught and administered by the parents. We are only here to assist in the homeschooling process by supplying the environment, teachers, and staff to help fulfill the task.
Q. How often are classes held?
A. Classes are held 3 times a week Monday, Tuesday, and Saturday’s . On Monday classes start at 9am CST and last until 2pm CST. On Tuesday classes start at 9am CST and last until 1pm CST. On Saturday’s class starts at 10am CST and last until 12 noon CST

A. We offer counseling, group parenting sessions, Sunday fellowship & trap chi which is the youngest martial arts practice which combines Tai chi with hip-hop instrumentals.
Q. I am an adult with no children of my own. Can I still enroll into the school?
A. If you have a cousin, brother, sister, or younger peer/ friend that you can dedicate in teaching the knowledge you learn. We may admit you into the program. Must provide child’s info. If not, our Saturday classes are open to the public. We highly suggest you sign up for those.
