Fees and Costs*

Membership Fees

We have 2 levels of membership fees for Australian families: one for single child families and one for 2 or more children families, invoiced in 6 monthly increments.  If you are enquiring after the first month of the six-month period (January and July), your fees will be pro-rated to the end of the six-month period and a subsequent invoice will be dispatched for the following six-month period. It may also differ depending on your region of residence, and this is outlined in the no obligation quote that will be emailed to you, along with up-to-date and regionally specific prices.

Access to our staff means access to experienced home-schooling parents and to A.C.E. resource experts.

We offer assistance with registration in every state and territory within Australia and with the MOE in New Zealand, which contains step-by-step instructions for the application forms as well as detailed program templates.  The program template cross references each states requirements with the A.C.E. Resources as well as ideas to fill in any gaps.

We supply all new families with a parent training pack which explains everything you need to know to set up a home schooling area and how to implement the A.C.E. Resources , including how to score (mark) the PACE’s.  We have a myriad of resources on our website that you can source for academic support. Support is provided to both parents and children with academic questions, however we unable to provide tuition at this time. We can however recommend a good tutor who offers discounts.

All of the services mentioned in our Services page are available to all member families.

Additional Costs

Cost of Resources

This will vary but for most families the cost will be around $600 - $1000 per child per year. These costs are influenced by freight charges, exchange rate fluctuations, and extra resources that you may want or need as well as the PACEs.

Cancelling Membership

When families enrol, they pay a 6 monthly membership fee to the end of June or December (which is prorated if enrolling within the 6 months).  The Membership Fee is renewed in January and July, so for families wanting to withdraw, must inform us at least one month before the end of the 6-month period. In accordance with the SCEE refund policy, only materials (PACE's) can be returned if they are in a re-sellable condition.
