Parent orientation will be Thursday, August 15th from 6:30 to 8:30. This is for Ingleside parents only. Please make plans to attend. There will not be a student orientation this year. The following is an overview of the agenda:
- Parents meet tutors, see classrooms, bring supplies for tutorial (not student supplies)
- Large group assembly: Opening remarks
- Review of class schedules: what Ingleside will be covering and what parents should cover at home (schedules are specific to each grade)
- Parents participate in hands on learning activities that can be done at home
- Brief overview and demonstrations of language arts components
- Logistics for the first day and closing remarks
Our orientation is very different this year. While we’ve focused more on philosophy in the past, this year your time spent during orientation will focus solely on what can be done at home and how. This event is not open to the public as it is centered around Ingleside activities only.
Please mark your calendars for the following events (some dates TBD closer to the event):
Training Events at Ingleside Tutorial
Tuesday, September 24 at 6:30, Calvary Chapel Kids Live Room
Learning from one another can be invaluable. Ingleside parents run the spectrum from new-to-homeschooling to having many years of homeschooling experience. The common denominators being that we are all journeying together, and we can all learn something new. This will be an evening of discussion. We’ll hear from other Ingleside parents on what’s working for them, hear and see ideas they’ve implemented in their homes, find out their most valuable resources, and ask questions of one another. The goal being to encourage one another as we build community.
October Training – UPDATE
Originally, we had planned to have a training/information meeting regarding exams. After discussing it further, we believe we can accomplish in a couple of emails how to equip and share with parents what they need to know. Therefore, we will NOT HAVE THE TRAINING as originally scheduled. Tutors are available to assist with any questions before and after exams.
Many of your child’s exams will be conducted at Ingleside, and those that are not can be administered at home. As a homeschooling parent, you have the option to give these exams to your student or not.
Ingleside Tutorial exams are conducted differently from other institutions. What’s the grading scale? How do you report oral exams? How do you ask the questions of your students? How do you know if your student is understanding the material? What do you want to avoid?
Prior to exam days, parents will receive an email regarding Ingleside’s exam philosophy and grading. A separate email from the child’s tutor concerning the specifics about the exams will also be sent to parents.
Tuesday, November 19, 1:30 PM at Raccoon Mountain East Trail
Engaging in the outdoors and observing nature is an integral part of life and education. Please make plans to join us and learn more about nature study as we hike together and build community. Ingleside parents, students, and siblings are all welcome!
Please bring nature journals, any trail guides you’d like to share with others as a resource, and wear weather/hiking appropriate clothing.
- Gather at trail head at 1:30
- Lisa will say a few words about nature study and observation
- We will have a table set up for attendees to view nature journals, field guides, and other resources (bring your own to share with others!)
- We will hike for approx. ¼ mile and stop to draw in our nature journals
- Following this exercise, parents can choose to continue the hike or head back
Please note that this is considered an optional homeschooling activity/training. Parents or guardians assume all risk and are fully responsible for their children during this activity. By participating in this gathering, you agree to hold Ingleside Tutorial, Inc. harmless for any accident that may take place during this time.

February date TBD 6:30, Calvary Chapel Kids Live Room
Since our last gathering like this in September, parents have asked to do it again! Learning from one another can be invaluable. Ingleside parents run the spectrum from new-to-homeschooling to having many years of homeschooling experience. The common denominators being that we are all journeying together, and we can all learn something new. This will be an evening of discussion.
