Aspire High is a tutoring business.  You pay this business to provide support for an online high school education being received from another institution, for instance, public school. 

Application and Acceptance Process

You (parent or student) contact us and we set up a time to talk.  Then we send you an application to complete.  The student then fills out an application and has an interview.   All of us (parents, students, staff) decide whether it is a good mutual fit.  You pay an enrollment fee, sign a contract that outlines exact responsibilities, and pay the first month's tuition by the 24th of the preceding month.
