Enrollment in SSA is available to students in grades K–12. If you would like to register for K, your child must be 5 years old before they can begin K.
Enrollment for the current academic year is now open!
Requirements for Enrollment
1) Complete the New Student Enrollment Form.
2) If your student is currently registered as a homeschooler with your county, you must submit a letter of termination to your county. If your student is currently registered with a private or public school, you need to officially withdraw your student from that school. If your student has never attended school before and is entering K, you simply register with SSA. Do not submit a letter of intent to homeschool while enrolling with SSA.
3) Copy of your child’s birth certificate within 30 days of enrollment.
4) Student Health Examination Form or waiver form. For Florida residents this is HRS-H Form 3040.
5) Certificate of Immunization or waiver form. For Florida residents the Certificate of Immunization is HRS Form 680 and the waiver form is Form DH 681.
6) Enrollment fee, due upon enrollment.
(All documents must be less than one year old. Email all documents to email@example.com).
Enrollments are processed each Friday.
SSA allows for year-round enrollment. Our “official” academic year begins August 1st of each year and ends July 31st of each year. If you join SSA mid-year to late-year, any school days completed at another school or while registered as a homeschooled student will roll over to SSA.
If your student attended another school or were homeschooled prior to joining SSA, we are happy to place them in the grade level that best fits their academic needs. While we do not require transcripts to review transfer credit for the elementary and middle school years (grades k-8), this is required of incoming students who have already completed grades 9, 10, or 11. SSA is happy to accept transfer credits. Any fees associated with transfer credit for high school students is included in the enrollment fee.
