Georgia Connections Academy Partner

OUR PARTNER IN EDUCATION:

GEORGIA CONNECTIONS ACADEMY

The established Georgia Connections Academy  (GACA) curriculum is the basis for our 1st - 8th grade academic programs and for high school courses offered to qualifying 8th grade students. 

GACA is a fully accredited virtual public school program the combines the best online and offline resources from leading educational publishers and curriculum specialists to deliver comprehensive, high quality K-12 online education.

Georgia Connections Academy is a highly effective alternative to a traditional public or homeschool curriculum. Partnering with Smoke Rise Prep helps students gain the knowledge and thinking skills they will need for life, work, and higher education. These courses develop skills in the important "four C's" of 21st century learning:

​​

  • Critical thinking and problem solving

  • Communication

  • Creativity and innovation

  • Collaboration

 

All of our students must first enroll in GACA before an interview is scheduled. Please visit the GACA website for instructions on GCA enrollment. Or, you may call GACA at 888-410-6502 and talk to an enrollment consultant.

THE LEARNING CONNECTION MODEL:

Our hybrid model is unique because each aspect is crucial to student success. Unity Learning Network Academy provides certified teachers and advanced learning opportunities. Our parents play an integral role providing volunteer hours to the school and staying involved in the students' learning experiences. Our students enjoy coming to school and know that they are in a safe and caring environment.

With all of these components working together, we are able to provide a unique and dynamic approach to education where parents are informed and welcome, students are happy and engaged, and teachers are creative and supported.

Our classes are small and focused. We encourage students to build solid friendships share and respect each other's viewpoints. We take time to engage each student, challenge critical thinking, and bring foundational skills to life through meaningful discussions. At Unity Learning Network Academy, we nurture basic skills, critical thinking, self confidence, and take a personal investment in each child.

Tuition Policy

Parents must understand that as a requisite of enrollment, a tuition contract must be signed and kept on file by the school. By signing the tuition contract, parents understand that they are liable for the entire tuition amount for the school year regardless of whether they attend the school for the entire school year. By agreeing to pay tuition and fees to the school, parents also understand that Smoke Rise Prep will be entitled to recover from parents its reasonable attorneys’ fees incurred in enforcing the tuition agreement and all outstanding principal and interest then due and payable, in accordance with O.C.G.A. § 13-1-11. 
  
All tuition and fees paid to ULN are nonrefundable.  

Tuition is due in full by June 1st, 2020
We offer installment payments as a courtesy to families who wish to pay over the course of the school year. Full tuition is assessed in your FACTS account at registration, and each payment reduces the total due.
All families will be required to set up a payment plan through FACTS Tuition Management System, there will be no exceptions. FACTS is responsible for collecting all tuition and incidental charges each school year. FACTS charges a $50 setup fee for monthly installment payments, and a $25 setup fee for Annual/Bi-annual payments. They will assess this fee when you set up your account.

A credit card payment option is available; however, FACTS charges a processing fee of 2.75% for credit card payments. In order to avoid paying the processing fee you will need to link your checking account to your payment plan. 

 

Automatic withdrawal will be the only means of payment accepted for monthly plans. Failure to remit payments in a timely manner may result in a late fee and if consistent, student withdrawal from the school. Official transcripts, student referrals, textbooks, and/or report cards will be held until tuition payments are current or an alternate payment plan has been approved by the Executive Director.
