How about those of you homeschooling a special needs child? Will A Beka offer a separate plan just for you? To answer that, there is no specific curriculum or adjustments for special learning needs. A Beka advisors suggest that the individual needs of each student can be met by curriculum pacing, or slowing down the rate at which your child is accomplishing his or her goals.
There are specific requirements for A Beka to issue your child a diploma, including necessary course work needed for graduation. A Beka Academy evaluates all work for your student, including High School proof of completion. While prices vary, the price of the Traditional Method is $750 paid in full for K through 6th grade. There are Videos and Books offered, along with Financial Streaming which costs from $225 for K up to $995 for grades 7 through 12.
