Parent Feedback
Many parents use this test as a tool to measure their child’s progress as well as to plan their upcoming school year.

Familiarization With Testing
The second reason to test would be to familiarize your students with standardized testing. This will better prepare them when taking the PSAT, SAT, and ACT if they decide to apply for college. This is also helpful if you have children with test anxiety as it gives them opportunities to work through this fear.

Acceptance Into The Home School National Honor Society
The third reason would be for qualification for some organization or club. The Stanford Achievement Test is an accepted test for entrance into the Home School National Honor Society. Our local chapter, Epsilon, is the leadership group of the CHATA service organization through the HEART homeschool group (homeschool-life.com/506/signup). There are possibly other organizations like this that might require testing.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Do we register for an entire year or per semester? Elementary Academy registration is by the year. Does my child have to take a class in all periods? All classes are offered a-la-carte. Students need to be supervised by the parent during any time they do not have class. Where do the classes meet? All classes meet in the Kingwood, Texas area. Does my child have to be enrolled in classes to take the Stanford Achievement Test in May? Registering for the Stanford Achievement Test given in May is optional for both Home Run Ministries students and other homeschooling students who do not attend Home Run classes.

Applications may be obtained by emailing AnneTrapani@homerunministries.com Can a student participate in one of the academic programs (Elementary Academy, Secondary Academy) and Super Friday? Yes, a student may register for one of the academic programs and Super Friday all in the same school year. May I visit one or more classes? As 2020-2021 is the initial year for the HRM Elementary Academy, we currently do not have classes in session. Interested parents are welcome to visit classes with a scheduled appointment during the 2020-2021 school year in preparation for the following school year.

No, we do not offer bus service, but we can refer families to other families living in the same vicinity for carpooling services. Do you accept special education students? Most of the HRM teachers are not trained in special education techniques. The faculty and administration are happy to include special education students if a student can succeed in our classes with only minor modifications. Is HRM Elementary Academy a nut-free campus? While we are unable to guarantee that the building we use is nut-free, students are asked not to bring nuts or food items containing nuts to our campus for the Tuesday classes. Will my child be served lunch? Students staying for the lunch period between our morning and afternoon classes must bring a sack lunch from home that does not require heating or preparation.
