Fee Schedule:

Peabody Individual Achievement Test, Revised P.I.A.T.-R- Standardized Testing, $60 for students I evaluate; $65 for students I don't evaluate. 

  • If your child is in grades 3, 5, or 8, the portfolio must include the results of a standardized test for at least reading, language arts, and mathematics.  These test results no longer need to be handed into the local school district.  I will again be offering the Peabody Individual Achievement Test (P.I.A.T.-R). The PIAT-R is accepted by the PA Dept. of Ed. and can be given for all grades. If you need to schedule testing at the time of evaluation, please let me know when you make your appointment. If you need information on other testing options please feel free to contact me. 

Short Form Evaluations: For grades 1-8 or for grades 9-12 who don't need credits on their evaluation.  The short form is a checklist type and meets the letter of the law.  If the pre-evaluation form is filled out prior to the evaluation and brought along to the evaluation, your appointment will take 30 minutes.

            Basic fee: for March through June evaluations: $45.00
            $40. for each additional child.

Short Form with Credit Evaluations: For grades 9-12, includes subjects with credits earned.  This type of evaluation is acceptable for parent issued diplomas and for the Susquehanna Valley Diploma Program.  If the pre-evaluation form is filled out and mailed one week prior to the evaluation, your evaluation will take 45 minutes.

            Basic fee: for March through June evaluations: $55.00
            $50. for each additional child.

General Evaluations:

            Basic fee for grades 1-8 through June 15: $65.00
            $60. for each additional child.

Detailed Evaluations:

            Basic fee for grades 9-12 through June 15:  $75.00
            $70. for each additional child.

**Secondary students need the Detailed Evaluation if they are going through the PHAA or Erie homeschool diploma programs.  Students using the Susquehanna Diploma Agency can choose a detailed evaluation letter or the short form with credits listed.  Students utilizing an independent diploma program such as Keystone, American Homeschool Diploma, and various colleges, etc. may use the Short Form or Short Form with Credits.

Objective Approval Letters:

               This approval letter and the objectives are to be submitted with the yearly affidavit.  $20.

**Students who have been identified as needing special education services are required by law to have their homeschool objectives approved. The program must address the specific needs of the exceptional student in the home education program.  Having a valid certificate from the Commonwealth to teach special education, I offer an objective approval letter service to homeschool families.  **Please note that this is the only additional filing requirement for special needs students. The evaluator you choose at the end of the year does not need special education certification.

 High School Transcripts:

        **There is a one-time $15.00 fee for all student transcripts.

   Long Distance Evaluations:

       **I offer several community evaluation dates in the Williamsport, Jersey Shore, and Avis areas.  Check with me for available dates and times.  There is a $15.00 charge per family for distance evaluations to help defray gas costs.  

Fees are due at the time of the interview.  If you are unable to pay these fees, please let me know and other arrangements can be made.
