Admission Policy

  1. Tuition is due upon enrollment. Payment plans are available for school programs.
  2. Tuition can be refunded if the student withdraws in writing within 15 days of enrollment. An administrative fee of $ 75 will be deducted from all refunds. No reduction or refund of fees is given in the case of student non-performance or lack of course completion.
  3. Tuition covers 12 months from the date of enrollment. No course progress will be lost when the tuition year ends, so students can continue working exactly where they left off.
  4. Students who complete 6 credits prior to the end of their 12-month enrollment year, may re-enroll early. This option allows students to accelerate their graduation date.
  5. A 30-day extension may be purchased in lieu of a year’s re-enrollment ONLY IF the student has 5 or fewer lessons/labs/projects to complete in the course. The cost for a 30-day extension is $50 per course.
  6. The $50 Transcript Evaluation Fee will be refunded upon enrollment in one of our Diploma Programs.

Academic Honor Code

SAHLAH is expecting its students to deliver work with their own individual effort, ideas and skills. Shared work is not welcomed. Students who violate the Academic Honor Code may be subject to formal disciplinary action.
Please make sure to read each of the following statements, then check the box to indicate that you understand each and every one.
  1. We encourage individual effort; therefore, all work must be in each student’s own words.
  2. Students may conduct Internet research. However, blatant copying and pasting from Internet sources is not acceptable.

  3. Posting SAHLAH lesson content, questions or answers on any other website or forum will be considered cheating and a violation of the academy’s policies. Strict action shall be taken.

  4. At no point should multiple students have access to the same computer files or internet browsers where work is saved. Sharing the same password even with siblings is not acceptable.
  5. Sharing or providing answers to another Whitmore student is considered cheating and carries the same consequences as copying work.

  6. Whenever an assignment offers students a choice of topics, readings, materials, etc. students in the same household or school must choose different topics to fulfill the assignment. Usage of the same topic will be grounds to ask the second student to redo the assignment.

  7. Proctored exams may be required if repeated ‘sharing’ of coursework occurs. If plagiarism and/or cheating are a recurring concern, the students may be expelled from the school.
