Expectations of Parents

We will try to keep an updated calendar on our website, however we need your help to track important dates, times, and events involving your students’ classes. Please write all dates and deadlines on your calendar.

Please read all the information you receive from leadership and from your students’ classes. Most of your questions will be answered in the material sent out.

Parents are encouraged to regularly communicate with instructors to gage the effectiveness and appropriateness of the content being offered.

All your students (children) are responsible for arriving at class on time.

To facilitate lost and found, please mark your student’s name on ALL books, notebooks, lunch boxes, coats, etc. that your student brings to Roanoke Salem Homeschool academy. Lost & Found is behind the welcome center in the lobby.

A parent lounge is available as a respite for study, work, or social get away during the day. While parents are welcome to use this room, please be mindful of your students location and their needs while on premises.

Parents of children under the age 13 are asked to remain on the church premises during their child(ren)’s classes. If you need to run out, please, let leadership know at the welcome table and ask another adult IF your children could be under their care/supervision while you are out OR if their sibling(s) are over 17 and responsible the younger children could be placed under their care.

Parents are ultimately responsible to oversee the education and behavior of their children, Roanoke Salem Homeschool Academy is a way to supplement that education. Roanoke Salem Homeschool Academy does not offer nor imply to offer a guarantee of any academic proficiency, score, performance, nor acceptance to any other academic institution based on attendance or assessments provided by Roanoke Salem Homeschool Academy, its associates, or assigns.

Parent Absence

In the event of a parent illness, children 13 and under may attend IF under the care/supervision of another adult at the academy OR if their sibling(s) are over 17 and responsible, the younger children could be placed under their care.


Parents are responsible for submitting their Notice of Intent along with any annual standardized assessment requirements to the school district in which they live, by the deadline stated. All requirements are the responsibly of the parents and NOT Roanoke Salem Homeschool Academy.

Parents of high school students may collect course data to be reported on their student’s transcripts for higher education requirements.

Interactions with Instructors

If there’s ever a question of the severity of the instructor’s response or correction, respond with grace and understanding as you work together to help the student in their growth. Everyone makes mistakes. But it is never too late to make it right. Work with your instructors in good faith that they are indeed aiming for the best for your child. Let’s guide our interactions with scripture and good faith intentions.

“I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.”
Ephesians 4: 1-3

Interactions with Other Students

Sometimes, other students need to be corrected by someone else. Do so in gentleness and firmness, but do so in good faith with their parents. Work to cooperate and include the other parents as quickly as possible. Understand that fathers parent differently than mothers. Our homeschool academy welcomes fathers and welcomes them to behave as fathers in good faith that we are all here working to the good of our children and the good of others’ children.
