Live Class Schedule

Whether or not your student is formally enrolled in the full St. Thomas Aquinas Academy homeschool program, he or she is welcome to join our live classes in writing, reasoning, religion, literature, history, economics, government, fine arts, and the natural sciences.  We offer a variety of options for high school students looking for live, online classes:

  1. Live Classes with Graded Discussions: Small group, seminar-style teleconference discussions directed by the advisor every other school week.  Classes are limited to eight students per class to encourage discussion and participation; the live meetings are guided by the advisor but are not lecture driven.
    Registration Fees$209 per semester, per student, per course; reduced to $159 for STAA students.

  2. Live Classes with Graded Discussions and Graded Assignments: With this option, in addition to the advisor-led class meetings mentioned above, students may submit their papers and other assignments to their advisor for review and grading.
    Registration Fees$325 per semester, per student, per course; reduced to $275 for STAA students.

  3. Writing and Reasoning Live Classes with Graded Discussions and Graded Assignments: These live classes we call the ✪Essential Schedule courses.  The ✪Essential Schedule courses meet every school week of the semester.  The courses in this category are Composition I, Composition II, Essay Writing B, Logic, Essay Writing A, Critical Reading, and Research Papers.
    Registration Fees: $475 per semester, per student, per course; reduced to $395 for STAA students.
