Families under the Tech-AOP Program will have a Personal Support Advisor. The Personal Support Advisor is your main contact person for all matters regarding the Tech Track. Your Personal Support Advisor is just an email away and will support you digitally every step of the way in your homeschooling journey as well as in setting up initially. Your Personal Support Advisor will: help you set up your Ignitia accounts (student and parent-teacher); provide you with support ensuring that parents and students are on track with accurate records; offer academic guidance in accordance with their individual educational expertise; assist you with any Learn program services and concerns; keep in touch with you monthly for updates; and will be available to answer your queries during Live Online Q&A. Every year, families under the Tech-AOP program also get midyear consultations. This serves as a checkpoint at the middle of the year. It is accountability time with your support advisor to validate your homeschooling journey. This is a 45-minute to an hour session that can happen live or online. These consultations should be booked at least one week ahead of time.
While BJU DLO is a US curriculum, Filipino and Araling Panlipunan books from local publishers are added for those under the DepEd accreditation.
All HG families are encouraged to join our exclusive Facebook community, Fams of HG, where we conduct free MAPE classes, share bonus learning content, and post general community updates to help both learner and parent-facilitator in their homeschooling journey.
Yes, you may hire a tutor to assist with homeschooling. The tutor may undergo the included training programs together with the parent. HG also offers Online Group Tutorials in Math, Science, English, Filipino, and Social Studies for Grades 3 to 10 DepEd & WCFS and Grade 11 & 12 WCFS students through the help of professional teachers. Good for one academic year (or to 10 months), the tutorial will happen in a group setting wherein your child will join other students of the same grade level. There is a set mini-lesson for 15 minutes, but the majority of the time (35 minutes) is given for students to ask questions via chat while the teacher will discuss these questions or finish with a check up game or activity if there are no questions.
With the TLC Specialized Developmental Service, families will benefit from the support of a TLC Specialist and Specialized Academic Goal Setting.
